"We have taken a look at all of the UD7 line-up and now have managed to get our hands on GIGABYTE’s flagship board, the X58A-UD9. This colossal motherboard is designed with one thought in mind; getting the most out of your system. From the advanced “unlocked” 24-phase power design (with Dual Phase Switching) to the two extra NF200 chips making 4-way x16 SLI or Crossfire a reality, it is clear you are going to get a lot from this motherboard.
Of course, as this product is so obviously designed with overclocking and benchmarking in mind, we wonder if it can perform well under normal demands and some low grade simple water cooled overclocking. Well, that is what we are going to find out over the next few pages. Once we know what it can do here, then we will dive in and see what else we can find out about the massive beast that is the X58A-UD9."

"In this review Frostytech will be testing out Noctua's massive dual-fan NH-D14 heatsink and comparing it against 280 other heatsinks. The big NH-D14 heatsink stands as tall as a modern tower heatsink but is twice as wide. The dual-fan set up more than makes up for that bulk by proving itself to be an excellent low noise solution capable of performance cooling. This heatsink currently ranks near the top of Frostytech's Top 5 Heatsinks chart."
