Above is a shot of the motherboard at the back.

The design is relatively simple and clean; great for those Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3P Marvell Storage of adding aftermarket CPU cooling solutions. A standard Intel backplate is found here, but all LGA aftermarket coolers should be designed to work with this backplate in place. Along with the "Ultra Durable 3" scheme Gigabyte's performance motherboards are known to have, they also market the board to have two ounces of copper used on the power and ground layers of the PCB in order to improve both its cooling and power delivery efficiently to its components.

This is done by lowering the PCB impedance. As shown in our image above, the use of surface mounts for the capacitors is evident. Around the board, pins still stick out for other components like RAM socket pins and expansion card slots; SMT surface-mount technology is not capable of withstanding higher mechanical stress required for this purpose. Since the heatsinks are considerably smaller than many other motherboards, I have had no problems Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3P Marvell Storage installing large heatsinks with regards to its clearance.

This design helps increase the power wattage delivery that in turn increases the overclocking performance.

As well, since this motherboard is part of Intel's 6-series chipset, it utilizes Dual CPU Power delivery technology, which allows the voltage regulators "Black blocks" in the photo above to operate as two Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3P Marvell Storage sets of regulators. This dual power switch technology added with the Ultra Durable 3 marketing lingo is claimed to increase and improve motherboard reliability. All these features work together to improve power usage and delivery, which optimizes efficiency, performance, and stability, while keeping temperatures lower.

Keep in mind the socket itself has been shifted to the right considerably from the older LGA boards. Some things that are not found around this motherboard that are usually present on higher end Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3P Marvell Storage include an onboard power button, reset button, and clear CMOS button. This is to be expected with the UD3 line from Gigabyte. This is a good location for the battery, because it is not Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3P Marvell Storage to physical obstruction by other components.


The expansion slots, in order from the top, are: The second one will split up the bandwidth with the first slot if a second graphics card is used, creating two PCIe x8 slots. However, do keep in mind that only the first PCIe x16 slot is a "true" PCIe x16 slot; the second one will do split it up with the first slot if a graphics card is installed to become two x8 slots. Z68 is funny beast, because it can be brought to Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3P Marvell Storage form with and without outputs for the Core processor's integrated graphics.

Gigabyte has 22 yes, 22 Z68 motherboards in its arsenal. The UD3P arrives with a stealthy black aesthetic, and we like it.

The board is busy, sure, but, on first glance, everything is tucked away neatly. To us this intimates idle power-draw should be good.

A couple of heatsinks line one side of the CPU socket. They feel somewhat flimsy, as they're held in by push-pins, and we'd like to see them screwed in.

Four DIMM slots are standard fare for a board of this ilk. Just to the right are a number of LEDs that define how many power phases are in action, but we're unsure of the benefits of having them in the chassis and out of Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3P Marvell Storage.

Four fan-headers - two close to the socket - make sense, as well. If that's not enough, Gigabyte adds in a further two SATA 6Gbps by way of an Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3P Marvell Storage controller from Marvell, though we'd recommend users saturating the Intel-provided ports first. A low-profile heatsink doesn't get in the way of larger graphics cards, which is good thinking.
