Gigabyte Launches the Z77X-UP7 Motherboard

More Info: http://www.gigabyte.com/press-center/news-page.aspx?nid=1152

The Z77X-UP7 is the latest socket LGA1155 motherboard from Gigabyte targeted to extreme overclockers. It features a 32+3+2 voltage regulator circuitry, high end components, two PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots (or four PCI Express 3.0 x8 slots), one PCI Express 3.0 x16 slot, two PCI Express x1 slots, four DDR3 sockets, six SATA-600 ports, four SATA-300 ports, 10 USB 3.0 ports, four USB 2.0 ports, eight-channel audio, and two Gigabit Ethernet ports.

With the onboard BIOS Switcher, users can manually select which BIOS chip to use (main BIOS or backup BIOS), allowing them to select one BIOS for normal use and the other specifically for overclocking. Users can also easily compare two different BIOS versions, a very useful feature when users want to update to a new BIOS but don’t want to lose their original settings.

Onboard OC-Touch buttons allow overclockers to manually adjust the CPU ratio, BCLK settings as well as adjustments to the BCLK stepping ratio, to either 1 MHz or 0.3 MHz increments. These changes can be made in real-time, whether in BIOS, DOS, or Windows, without the need for rebooting so that users can quickly fine-tune their system and find their CPU’s maximum frequency. Onboard voltage measurement modules are also included to help users conveniently monitor individual component voltages. An onboard LN2 Mode switch allows users to quickly drop CPU frequency to x16 multiplier during extreme overclocking so that opening benching applications such as CPU-Z will not cause the overclock to fail.
