Quoted from Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP5 TH Reviews:
Check out these quotes from Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP5 TH reviews & previews
"The GA-Z77X-UP5 TH costs an average of £228. In this comparison table that's sorted by price you can see how it compares to other similar motherboards. The Gigabyte board is an alternative for the £35 more affordable P8Z77-V Pro/Thunderbolt and the £45 cheaper MSI Z77A-GD80. The ASUS board is virtually identical in terms of hardware compared to the Gigabyte board, but uses much more power and has lower sound quality. The Gigabyte board is also more practical for overclockers with the onboard buttons and a HEX display. The MSI board does not have a WLAN adapter and comes with fewer USB 3.0 ports, but is more efficient and has better sound. In short, the Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP5 TH is the best of both worlds. It earns the Hardware.Info Silver Award due to its quality features and performance."
"These Intel Z77 motherboards feature dual Thunderbolt ports to support a new generation of expansion devices."
"In all the Gigabyte Z77X-UP5H is an exceptional product. It has more features than most motherboards currently on the market, top-of-its-class performance, overclocks extremely well and looks sexy in any chassis. It is expensive though and the premium is due to the dual Thunderbolt ports, which are not practical for most users. Our recommendation would be to buy this board only if you can actually utilize the dual Thunderbolt ports, if not you can find alternatives with similar features that won’t break the bank."
"I really feel that this board might be ignored by many simply because of Thunderbolt, but if you are into building a Hackintosh, there's no better option. I've already seen quite a few people get things up and running very quickly even though this product has barely hit retail shelves. I cannot forget to mention the great audio rendering the Z77X-UP5 TH has, and with the Hackintosh perspective fresh, this really does add to the overall package the Z77X-UP5 TH offers - one which has me sold. No, it's not perfect ... but ultimately, it's pretty damn close. I have talked to Gigabyte about the issues I have found to make sure they are definitely aware, as this is something they HAVE to fix. Until then, good job Gigabyte, but I know you can do just a bit better."
