So if you read up on my preview of the Z77X-UD5H you saw a physical review in which I went over every section of the motherboard, top to bottom I examined its every chip and described what to expect when you toss a CPU into the board. So today that is exactly what I will do, toss in a Sandy Bridge 2600K into the UD5H, first to gather how the system performance, how the BIOS acts, how the overclocking is, and examine many of the Z77 chipset’s new goodies.
For beginners one of the biggest gains of Z77 for most is the inclusion of native USB 3.0 which not only is great for performance but also allows board makers to use more 3rd party controllers for things such as dual NICs and extra SATA6GB/s because there are only 8 PCI-E lanes from the PCH to the 3rd party Ices and usually at least two of those are occupied by USB 3.0 controllers. However there is one other interesting feature which isn’t part of the Z77 PCH, but rather one that has just been chosen to launch with Z77 and that is Lucid’s MVP. So I personally have been messing and testing for a while now with MVP, I have analyzed it, researched it, and finally put it through some analysis with micro stuttering to see what is really happening. I don’t think you will see an analysis quite like this anywhere else on the web, so please sit back and relax and enjoy the review .For beginners I will start off where I left off, so if you didn’t read my physical review, please do so now. However it isn’t required unless you want some sexy shots of the board and some explanations of what everything does: Z77X-UD5H Physical Review
