"In conclusion, the Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD4P receives my highest recommendation. This X58 motherboard offers all of the features available to premium high-end motherboards, but spares us the added cost. For previous generation users of the X48 and P45 platforms (and even X38), I don't see the X58 platform offering a substantial return on investment when gaming is the core focus. However the P35-Express and older platforms would benefit from a combination of updated PCI-Express 2.0 graphics bandwidth and updated memory architecture. Everyone and everything can benefit from triple-channel memory over the dual-channel bandwidth of past platforms, but the application workload must be large enough to see an actual difference. Casual overclockers are guaranteed to enjoy the myriad array of settings and BIOS configuration options, while the performance enthusiast will admire the scalability of 3-way SLI and CrossFireX."
"Like many other X58 motherboards, the GigaByte EX58-UD4P performs quiet well. But it's not just the kind of performance that separates one company from any other. It is the features that each has that separates them. In this category, GigaByte has a definite lead. By utilizing two 2oz copper plates in the PCB, a copper heat pipe design, three PCI-E X16 ports capable of handling Tri Fire or SLI with the greatest of ease, this motherboard is the most stable motherboard I, myself, have used. Going from a FSB of 133 to 210 FSB was, simply, an easy task to do. Also, this is one of the first motherboards I have seen that has a working XMP profiler. Normally, I just turn this feature off because it causes more headaches than what it is worth, especially when cranking the FSB."
"This one's a slam dunk. If you're building a Core i7 rig and have the scratch for a $260 mobo, we unequivocally recommend the Gigabyte EX58-UD4P."
"Gigabyte has done their usual stellar job with the EX58-UD4P motherboard. This board overclocked to 3.8GHz on air without voltage tweaks. Had the board reached 4GHz as several of the X58 boards have reached, this product would have received the Editor's Choice award. As it is, the board receives a Hot Product Award, which is no mean feat. The EX58-UD4P board was featured in the recent Gigabyte Overclocking Championship. Performance on the board was exemplary, besting the best I've ever seen on this platform. This is mainly due to the fact that the board overclocks by 5% when running a test but it is nice to see a board outperform some of the competition across the board. Gigabyte offers a great bundle with lots of useful software including a HDD backup, a Time restore utility and anti-virus software."
"Overall, it was a joy working with the EX58-UD4P. Overclocking was simple, but it also has the capacity to get complex for hardcore users. This board is third behind the top of the line EX58-EXTREME, which is aimed for the top of the line market, but this board still puts up great numbers. The only real con is that it only has one LAN port, but the next two models do have dual LAN, so I won't grudge this board."
