    Motherboard

    Hello I'm looking at getting a new mobo for my I7 930. I looked at the recommend GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard but I read the reviews on it and it seems a lot of people are having trouble with BIOS and the memory.

    I was wondering if people w/ this mobo are having troubles and also is there a similar mobo to this from a different company I can try?

    I have the UD3R, and havn't had a single problem with it. There is also the UD5 you could go for.

    ASUS P6X58D Premium and P6X58D-E are also good choices.

    I have "GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD5 LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
    SATA 3.0, USB 3.0, 3x USB power" and the i7-930. Haven't had one problem since I built it. Great for Overclocking, bios is user friendly and the board it self is overclocker friendly with a lot of cool features. I have on the other hand had some problems with Asus but they are still a great brand as well.
