GIGABYTE Also Unveils Z87X-UD4H and Z87X-UD5H Motherboards

In addition to the Z87N-WiFi mini-ITX motherboard, GIGABYTE showed off a couple of its top ATX products from its mainline Z87X series, the Z87X-UD4H and Z87X-UD5H. The two mark GIGABYTE's complete breakaway from the blue color scheme, and lack the color even on their heatsinks. The Z87X-UD4H features a hot-rod red+silver+black color-scheme, while the Z87X-UD5H features gold+silver+black. Both boards are based on the company's Ultra Durable 5 construction. Both boards appear to offer overclocker-friendly features that are reserved for the high-end, such as redundant BIOS, diagnostic LEDs and measurement points for each power domain, and high-grade electrical components.

The Z87X-UD4H offers a 16-phase CPU power supply, three each of PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slots (electrical x16/x8/x4), PCI-Express 2.0 x1, and a legacy PCI. It offers eight internal SATA 6 Gb/s ports, two eSATA 6 Gb/s, ten USB 3.0 ports (six on the rear panel, four by headers), 8-channel HD audio, and display outputs that include DVI, D-Sub, HDMI, and DisplayPort. The Z87X-UD5H, on the other hand, offers the same 16-phase CPU VRM and the same expansion slot layout as its sibling, but tops it up with ten internal SATA 6 Gb/s ports, dual gigabit Ethernet, a second DVI connector instead of D-Sub, and FireWire (by header). The two will most likely be part of GIGABYTE's first wave of socket LGA1150 motherboards, and could be priced above $150.

Looks good I think. Definitely an improvement.

If you're going to colour the sinks on a MoBo, have the decency to make it match, or almost match other hardware colours that a system may contain...

I've always thought the blue Giga mobos looked just fine. I find it amazing that people get so spastic over the color of the mobo, heatsinks, PCB on RAM, PSU cases, fans, etc. No disrespect intended but do these people sit and stare at their PC hardware all day? If so then the meds ain't working properly. :laugh:

These Z87 boards, from all vendors actually, look so nice. Even if Haswell performance isn't much better then Ivy. I think its still worth it, seeing as the boards are amazing sights.
