Gigabyte GA-Z170X-UD3, Intel Z170, S 1151, DDR4, SATAe, M.2 (PCIe/SATA), 2-Way SLi/3-Way CrossFire, GbE, USB3.1 A+C, ATX is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Flexible Board Very happy with the GA-Z170X-UD3 - have put it in a Corsair Carbide Air 540 with a I5 6600, Corsair H100i and Corsair CMU16GX4M2A2666C16R Vengeance 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4 2666 MHz C16 XMP 2.0, and 2xCrucial MX300 1TB SSDs. Anyone would think I work for Corsair! :) The MB was originally chosen for an Operating Environment other than Windows or Linux for which it performs admirably. Can't fault the board or documentation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for money, stable board. Let me get the negatives out of the way first, the board has awful UEFI fan control options, other OEMs have much better offerings in their Z170 UEFIs. However, Gigabyte at least provides a desktop software with much better options available from their website for use with this board. Secondly, the UEFI is not the most intuitively laid out piece of software, competitors offer more competence in this regard. (ASUS has in my opinion been no1 far and away since the P67 chipset) This and the afore mentioned are something regular Gigabyte users are most likely familiar with. Now onto the positives, The board is only £140, the UEFI has 100% functionality needed to use all of the board's features, the board is black and gold without any (for me) undesirable "gaming" branding on it. It has a decent audio solution which doesn't have electrical noise audible on mine when using headphones. I have experienced no coil whine or other electrical noise when using the board. The board has not 1 but 2 full speed m.2 PCIE 4x NVME slots, one of them is wired straight into the chipset (the bottom one) and the other will disable some SATA ports if you populate it. The board has an Intel NIC. I have a 6700K overclocked to 4.8Ghz on this board, 16GB (2 DIMMs) of G.Skill 3200Mhz CL14 RAM, a Samsung SM961 m.2 NVME SSD, a GTX 1080 (KFA2 HOF) @ 2165Mhz on the board too. The board ran the memory on its XMP profile with no fussing needed to get it to run at full speed, the CPU is perfectly stable and for benchmarks will run at 5Ghz at just under 1.5V, I get full performance from my m.2 NVME SSD and have room for another NVME drive should I wish to install one in the future. To conclude, you do not need a high end ROG board or expensive "gaming" branded board to run high end hardware at high end clock speeds, I purchased this product and I am 100% happy with it as a gamer and an enthusiast, I am getting the most from my other components and I only paid £140 for my motherboard. Good job Gigabyte.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought for running VMware ESXi 6.0 I chose this board to replace/upgrade my old VMware ESXi 6.0 virtualisation server, which was running on an older Gigabyte board. This particular one was chosen for the Z170 chipset so I could put an Intel Core i7 6700K into it, and also the fact it has 2x high speed M.2 SSD slots, for future expansion. Very few have done ESXi on this arrangement. I am pleased to say that using ESXi 6.0 Update 2 it installed flawlessly, and everything was detected and is working perfectly. I have built many computers, nearly always using Gigabyte motherboards, as I find them the most reliable overall out of all I have tried. This board is excellent quality, Gigabyte supply you with a little plastic header to drop all your front panel power/reset/hard disk cables into, so that you can push them all onto the motherboard in one go! making this horrible task much easier. Also another feature I really liked was the ability to snapshot screengrab BIOS screens directly to a USB key, excellent feature!! I would thoroughly recommend this board to anybody looking for a solid and reliable board to build a new computer, or upgrade their old one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well, very pleased with it A nice motherboard with good features for my needs. Works well and I had no problems setting it up. Boot times are slightly slower with Windows 10 than my other Z77 system but not enough to bother me. It boots with a bios error code of '04' which is not documented in the manual. Looking on the web, this error code is either a failure of the northbridge/southbridge chip (requiring the motherboard to be binned!) or a simple information message on the boot state of Windows 10. Anyway, I have not experienced any problems with the motherboard in use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good It is a very good mother board. Be aware of the lake of PCI port inside (only PCIe ports). If you use PCI sound card or network card you won't be able to plug it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Mobo Bought this Mobo for my new build, it is quite simply amazing, it has been a while since I bought any computer upgrades and soo not disappointed with the purchase, 2 x m.2 slots for dual SM951's in raid.. black magic reports 4420mb's read 2500 write :)

Questions & Answers

Does this product shutdown?

The last Gigabyte motherboard I bought could not shutdown without manual intervention. Is this problem solved?
Asked by: MixyMoose
Never seen that problem and have owned a number of GA boards. Definitely not a problem with the GA-Z170X-UD3.
