The UD3P that we received admittedly didn’t arrive in a box using the retail packaging. Our sample was one of the first to arrive in the UK and so at the time GIGABYTE didn’t have packaging ready. Rest assured though, the UD3P you will buy off the shelf will come in a retail box.
The UD3P bundle consists of the following:
• Documentation – Manual, Smart Response Guide, Installation Guide
• 4x SATA 3 (6Gbps) Cables
• SLI Bridge
• I/O panel for chassis
The UD3P bundle
The motherboard itself is very much in keeping with GIGABYTE’s revamped colour configuration of black/gunmetal. The layout and design is very similar to the recently reviewed Z68X-UD4 – the obvious physical difference being the heatsinks on the MOSFETs of the UD3P are smaller.
For a mainstream motherboard the UD3P looks aesthetically pleasing. It ticks all the boxes in terms of its physical appearance – over the page we will take a closer look at each section.
