The heatsinks themselves are located above the socket, to the left of the memory, and on the chipset itself. The socket area is normal for an X79 motherboard — we have the memory to the right and left, and a heatsink to the top. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment. As part of the Computex show, Gigabyte demonstrated to us their new version of Ultra Durable. In order to maximize the heat removal, all three heatsinks are connected via a heatpipe, and thus there is no need for an extra chipset fan.

By combining many elements of the power delivery process into one device, we save real estate on the giggabyte — combine this with some IP from International Rectifier regarding packaging and internal structures, and Gigabyte states we have many of the following benefits:. I cannot say if I have ever seen this brand of USB 3.
Gigabyte X79S-UP5 WiFi Review: Ultra Durable 5 Meets the C606 Chipset
Inherent in the design is the longevity, but it rarely ever becomes a major feature that sways a purchase decision. In order for it to be cost effective though, we need them all to jump in to drive the cost down.
The socket area is normal for an X79 motherboard — we have the memory to the right and left, and a heatsink to the top. For an upper workstation board, Gigabyte has gone with a blue and black theme on the heatsinks combined with a black and grey for memory and most of the SATA ports.
It does not come cheap. Let us put this into perspective — normally combining elements into a smaller area causes problems for heat production, but this solution has been designed to get around it. Whether it is digital or analogue, the vast majority of users do not know, let alone care.
Other companies are free to jump in with IR if they want to use this technology. In order to maximize the heat removal, all three heatsinks are connected via a heatpipe, and thus there is no need for an extra chipset fan.

While at Computex, I was quoted that for the high-end motherboards that will initially use these ICs, the power delivery sub-system alone can cost as much as a low-end consumer motherboard.
A bit of checking later and it turns out that Intel specifications limit the bus speed between the SAS ports and the chipset at PCIe 1. There are arguments against the Debug LED for sure – namely that there is no x79s-up5-wufi for it when a product is inside a case.
In reviewing, it aids in overclock testing or memory debugging if there is a memory issue. As the focus is on workstation scenarios, we could easily put in a Quadro and a pair of Tesla GPUs, or one of each and a dedicated single slot video output card and the included WiFi module. The heatsinks themselves are located above the socket, to the left of the memory, and on the chipset itself.
Along the right hand side of the board, we get a big red power gigabyt for enthusiasts, our standard pin ATX power connector with a 4-pin fan header beside it, a USB 3.

This has an appreciative affect on motherboard choices for low noise, low airflow situations. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment.
The design of the IR is such that the heat is dissipated, and designed not to affect the system as. The other two headers on board are 3-pin SYS headers at the bottom end. Gigabyte had four to chose from — C, C, C and C, each increasing in features and cost. Power delivery, for the large part of consumers, is either something that works or does not. On the south side of the board Gigabyte have included their usual array of headers, including a Trusted Platform Module header makes more sense in a workstation environmentan IEEE header, three USB 2.
Personally, I think one of these could have been moved to next to the CPU fan header, just to promote the situation where more CPU fan headers are provided. By combining many elements of the power delivery process into one device, we save real estate on the board — combine this with some IP from International Rectifier regarding packaging and internal structures, and Gigabyte states we have many of the following benefits: Initially Gigabyte has six motherboards using the new Ultra Durable 5 system.
Initially this new design is being paired with six motherboards, all designated with UP rather than UD in the name. Due to Gigabyte applying the heatsinks in the way that they have, the PCIe layout is based on six ports overall, aimed at a maximum of a three GPU setup.
The x79s-up5-wifo push with Ultra Durable 5 is the temperatures. The other issue, which will hit all users, is the cost of implementing x7s9-up5-wifi a technology.
