GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 4 Plus debuts on GIGABYTE 8 Series motherboards, with a range of features and component choices that provide record-breaking performance, cool and efficient operation and extended motherboard lifespan.
Ultra Performance: GIGABYTE uses All Solid Caps (Capacitors) and Low RDS(on) MOSFETs which are rated to work at higher temperatures to provide a longer lifespan.
Ultra Safe: GIGABYTE motherboards feature GIGABYTE DualBIOS, an exclusive technology from GIGABYTE that protects arguably one of your PC's most crucial components, the BIOS. GIGABYTE DualBIOS means that your motherboard has both a 'Main BIOS' and a 'Backup BIOS', making users protected from BIOS failure due to virus attack, hardware malfunction, improper OC settings or power failure during the update process.
High Quality Audio Capacitors: GIGABYTE Ultra Durable motherboards use high quality Nippon Chemicon ARE series audio capacitors. These professional audio capacitors deliver the highest quality sound resolution and sound expansion to create the most realistic sound effects for user experience.
Dedicated Audio Hardware Zone
- Separation on the PCB layer protects the board's sensitive analog audio components.
- Separate analog and digital ground to protect against Electromagnetic Interference (EMI).
Humidity Protection: Humidity can play havoc on a motherboard's circuitry.GIGABYTE's new Glass Fabric PCB design helps protect against electrical shorts due to humidity by reducing the gaps in spacing between PCB filaments.
Power Failure Protection: GIGABYTE also uses Anti-Surge ICs to protect the motherboard against power surges.
Electrostatic Protection: GIGABYTE motherboards feature High Resistance ICs which help protect the motherboard against electrostatic discharge.
High ESD Protection for USB and LAN (USB 3.0 only): GIGABYTE 8 Series motherboards raise the bar in terms of protecting your system, providing advanced electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection for both your Ethernet LAN and USB ports, both common sources of ESD-related failures. Each LAN and USB port can withstand high electrostatic discharges, protecting your system from common electrical surges and even direct lighting strikes.
4K Ultra HD Support: 4K resolution is the next technological milestone in high-definition content delivery, utilizing approximately 4,000 pixels on the horizontal axis, more than four times today's standard HD pixel density. GIGABYTE 8 series motherboards provide native 4K support with integrated Intel HD Graphics via HDMI.
HDMI-The Next Generation Multimedia Interface: HDMI is a High-Definition Multimedia Interface which provides up to 5Gb/s video transmitting bandwidth and 8-channel high quality audio all through a single cable. Able to transmit superior, uncompressed digital video and audio, HDMI ensures the crispest rendering of digital content up to 1080p without the quality losses associated with analog interfaces and their digital-to-analog conversion. In addition, HDMI is compatible with HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection), allowing the playback of Blu-ray/HD DVD and other protected media content.
On/Off Charge Technology: 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.
LAN Optimizer - Intelligent optimization network management tool: GIGABYTE LAN Optimizer is designed to allow the user to manage different types of network traffic so that data streams such as HD media, web browsing or online gaming can be prioritized, taking precedence over large data downloads that tend to strangle overall network bandwidth.
GIGABYTE App Center: GIGABYTE App Center gives you easy access to wealth of GIGABYTE apps that help you get the most from your GIGABYTE motherboard. Using a simple, unified user interface, GIGABYTE App Center allows you to launch all GIGABYTE apps installed on your system.
GIGABYTE EasyTune provides a simple and easy-to-use interface that allows users to fine-tune their system settings.
GIGABYTE Smart Fan 2: As well as offering more system fans than ever before, GIGABYTE 8 Series motherboards feature updated and improved CPU and system fan speed controls, with individual airflow and speed settings available via a dedicated digital controller. GIGABYTE Smart Fan 2 allows you to configure CPU fans and system fans.
GIGABYTE at.BIOS: The new and updated GIGABYTE at.BIOS app allows you to update your system's BIOS from within Windows using a simple and slick graphical user interface by automatically downloading the latest version from the GIGABYTE servers.
GIGABYTE EZ Setup: GIGABYTE EZ Setup combines several key utilities designed to simplify install and configuration procedures for several exclusive GIGABYTE apps including Disk Mode Switch, Smart Connect, EZ Rapid Start and EZ Smart response.

bought this motherboard last year and it really good for the price . I have a gtx 760 and a i5 and it handles them like a champ

Much disappointment, many frustrations.
The layout of this board is shocking to say the least, I gave it three stars because it could possibly work well in the most basic of set-ups.
To be fair, functionally, I have had no problems.
It needs to be said though, if you have any ambitions towards using a pci-e card (wireless is the likely use), you cannot have a graphics card any larger than the most basic form factor. For example, an nVidia 730 completely covers the pci-e.
Also, for a new board that has USB3, I was incredibly disappointed to find no USB3 header on the board... so again, only the most basic chassis with USB2 on the front panel will do. Unless you don't have a mid range + graphics or want wireless, then you can buy a pci-e to USB3 header.
Regardless though, it only offers 4 USB ports on the board (not counting USB2 headers), so sacrifices will need to made all around to get any use from this board other than using it in a very... very basic configuration.

Great value for money, perfect for gamers. No issues with it or installing it into my chassis.

It is VERY small, but does the job extremely good! Will recommend for first time PC builders!
