Gigabyte X79S-UP5 WiFi Intel LGA 2011 Review

The Board - Layout »


I was disappointed when I received the Gigabyte Z79S-UP5 WiFi. What greeted me when I opened the shipping container was a near copy of both the Z77X-UP5 TH and the Z77X-UD5H box I have shown in the past. The rear of the box is the same with a picture of the board and some technology descriptions.

Opening the box, I found the board wrapped in an anti-static bag with quite a few board accessories sitting underneath of this bag.


The Gigabyte Z79S-UP5 WiFi, like its name indicates, does, like many recent Gigabyte boards, include an add-on WiFi/Bluetooth combo card that fits into a PCIe x1 slot, and has a cable that attaches to a USB 2.0 header. There are the usual manuals, discs, SATA cables, and a USB 3.0 header that slides into a front-facing 3.5" port, including SLI bridges, to support the SLI and Tri-SLI functionality. I also found an extended Crossfire bridge and a couple of antennas for the add-in WiFi card in the box.
