A New Legend is Born
GIGABYTE has unleashed its latest flagship Z77X-UP7 Motherboard. Designed for extreme overclocking, the GIGABYTE Z77X-UP7 motherboard is for serious overclockers looking to take down world records. With several world record-breaking CPU and GPU submissions, the GIGABYTE Z77X-UP7 is proving to be this year’s overclocking motherboard to beat.


Industry Leading
32+3+2 Phase
CPU Power Design
The GIGABYTE Z77X-UP7 motherboard delivers some serious amount of power through its 32+3+2 power phase design (32 CPU phases, 3 Intel® HD Graphics, 2 VTT phases). Featuring the new GIGABYTE Ultra Durable™ 5 technology with high current capable components including 60A rated PowIRstages® from IR, the Z77X-UP7 is able to deliver an astonishing 2,000W of power delivery.

True All Digital PWM Design
The GIGABYTE Z77X-UP7 motherboard takes advantage of an exclusive All Digital Engine to deliver maximum power to 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processors. Using entirely digital controllers means that more precise power delivery to the motherboard’s most power hungry and energy sensitive components is possible.

4-Way Graphics
The GIGABYTE Z77X-UP7 delivers the industry's most scalable graphics platform, with support for both 4-way Crossfire™ and Nvidia SLI™. Providing 4 PCI Express 3.0 x8 connectivity, the Z77X-UP7 delivers ultra smooth 3D rendering, blazing-fast frame rates and enhanced graphics capabilities for users wanting to get the highest level of graphics performance from their system.
- Native PCIe Gen. 3 x16 Direct Link to CPU
Single black PCIe x16 slot provides a direct link to the CPU, enabling it to bypass the PLX chip. This provides the fastest possible connection for single graphics card benching.




GIGABYTE has completely re-drawn the traditional BIOS experience, providing mainstream and enthusiast users with an exclusive in-house designed UEFI BIOS technology. Featuring a superior graphical interface capable of 32-bit color imaging and fluid user-friendly mouse navigation, GIGABYTE 3D mode allows novice or casual users to more clearly understand the areas of the motherboard that are being affected through the BIOS settings, gaining a clearer understanding of the BIOS functionality. Advanced Mode provides a more comprehensive UEFI BIOS environment that is designed specifically for overclockers and power users who want maximum control over their PC’s hardware.
At the heart of this exciting 3D BIOS™ technology is a pair of physical BIOS ROMs containing GIGABYTE’s exclusive in-house designed Dual UEFI BIOS™ technology, featuring the patented GIGABYTE DualBIOS™ technology that automatically recovers BIOS data when main BIOS has crashed or failed.

BIOS Switcher
With onboard BIOS Switcher, users can manually select which BIOS chip to use (Main BIOS or Backup BIOS), allowing them to select one BIOS for normal use, and the other specifically for overclocking. Users can also easily compare two different BIOS versions, a very useful feature when users want to update to a new BIOS, but don’t want to lose their original settings.

DualBIOS™ Disable Switch
Using the onboard DualBIOS™ Disable Switch, users can disable the DualBIOS™ recovery feature, helping to save time between failed overclocks.



OC-Touch enables overclockers to quickly and easily get the best performance from their system. Onboard OC-Touch buttons allow overclockers to manually adjust the CPU ratio, BCLK settings as well as adjustments to the BCLK stepping ratio, to either 1MHz or 0.1MHz increments. These changes can be made in real-time, whether in BIOS, DOS, or Windows® without the need for rebooting, so that users can quickly fine-tune their system and find their CPU’s maximum frequency. Onboard voltage measurement modules are also included to help users to conveniently monitor individual component voltages and onboard LN2 Mode switch allows users to quickly drop CPU frequency to x16 multiplier during extreme overclocking so that opening benching applications such as CPU-Z will not cause the overclock to fail.

Thin Fin Cooling Design
GIGABYTE has created a new “Thin Fin” heatsink design featuring the GIGABYTE signature OC Orange look and feel for its latest flagship motherboard. Featuring ultra thin metal fins, the heatsink provides greater surface area so that quicker heat exchange can occur.

3X USB Power
GIGABYTE motherboards feature a 3x USB power boost, delivering greater compatibility and extra power for USB devices. GIGABYTE’s unique USB power design is also able to efficiently regulate output over the full voltage range, which greatly enhances USB device compatibility. In addition, dedicated lower resistance fuses ensure lower voltage drops, and provide more stable and plentiful power delivery.


On/Off Charge USB Port
GIGABYTE Helps You Quick Charge Your iPhone / iPad / iPod Touch
GIGABYTE On/Off Charge technology allows you to charge your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch regardless of whether your PC is on, in standby mode or even off. A derivative of GIGABYTE's highly acclaimed 3x USB Power feature, On/Off Charge enables devices to draw more current from GIGABYTE motherboard USB ports than standard USB ports allow, so that charging from your PC can be as fast as with a charger.


mSATA Connector Onboard
Unique Onboard mSATA SSD Support

GIGABYTE Z77X-UP7 motherboard features an onboard mSATA slot, allowing DIY builders to take advantage of advanced SSD-based technologies like Intel® Smart Response and Intel® Rapid Start. Mounting an affordable, low capacity mSATA SSD directly onto your motherboard can enhance your PC’s performance with better overall desktop responsiveness, faster boot times and faster system resume times.

Simple and Efficient
mSATA modules are easy to install, take up less space, use less power and require no additional cabling for smaller form factor systems.

Cost Effective
mSATA modules are more cost effective than regular SSDs – using less PCB and requiring no external drive housing.

mSATA SSD uses a Mini-PCIe interface to connect directly to the board via a SATA data bus, leaving all PCIe lanes free.



80 Port Debug Display
An onboard Debug LED (Embedded post code LED display) simplifies motherboard signals and indicates system status.
