The Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H-WB WiFi leaves a good impression and so far we really like it. Opening the box shows a good delivery. There really is everything you need. With the WiFi card there even is a nice addition which enables wireless connectivity. Generally this is a nice looking board which also comes with many overclocking features. There are for example voltage readout point, power, reset and CLR COMS button. Overall this is a really versatile board.   - Layout

Layout   + -

Generally the Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H-WB WiFi has been very well thought regarding the layout. You will find everything that is practical and useful like for example reset/power/clear_cmos buttons as well as a BIOS switch, voltage reading points, a Debug LED Post Code display. Once more practical are also the angled SATA connectors and finally one legacy PCI slot which can still be very useful nowadays. Furthermore we found two PCI Express x1 slots below the first full size PCI Express slot. If you should think about an SLI or CrossFire setup the cards will be well ventilated.

  - SLI/CrossFireX
- Onboard buttons - Debug LED Post Code
- Voltage reading points - Legacy PCI
- HDMI/VGA/DVI/DisplayPort
- no PS/2

- StreetFighter
 
       
BIOS / Overclocking   + -
Also in the overclocking part the Z77X-UD5H-WB WiFi was a very convincing product. Therefore it's been childrens play to reach the clock wall of our test CPU.

Gigabyte chose an individual approach and in our opinion, they succeeded.   - Well structured BIOS - UEFI-BIOS
