Gigabyte Z87-D3HP Motherboard Review

Rating: 8.0.

Situated towards the entry-level end of Gigabyte’s Ultra Durable series of Z87 motherboards, the Z87-D3HP aims to provide a cheap-and-cheerful way for budget-conscious users to make the switch to Haswell.

Featuring six SATA 6Gb/s ports, CrossFire capabilities, Intel LAN, and up to ten USB 3.0 ports, Gigabyte’s Z87-D3HP offers a good amount of features that will allure the budget-conscious gamer wanting to invest in an LGA1150 system.

With digital voltage control, dual BIOS chips, and Gigabyte’s Ultra Durable 5 Plus technology, can the Z87-D3HP prove that it’s worth a circa-£100 price tag?

Feature-packed and rammed with connectivity, the X299 Aorus Gaming 7 isn't even Gigabyte's flagship board!

    Great price. and it seems all the more expensive boards with 12 power phase etc are a bit of a waste of cash as the cpus are very limited in regards to ocing

  • Ben

    Seems like a winner, not very sexy looking, but at least the heatsinks arent gold!

  • Andy

    It proves that unless you need a lot of the modded stuff these cheap boards are much better than they used to be. I like gigabytes new boards, better than the competition

  • maybe Gigabyte is OK.
