Gigabyte P55M-UD4 GA-P55M-UD4There was a time when having a few extra peripheral slots was convenient, heck even necessary, but most motherboards now sport a slew of on-board devices which make ATX boards slightly less useful so you might as well save yourself some space and go microATX.

The Gigabyte P55M-UD4 looks like a solid choice if you’re going in that direction. With its Intel Core i5/i7 supporting LGA1156 socket and CrossFireX support you’d be hard pressed to find something more feature rich. HardOCP has the review:

The P55M-UD4’s layout and overall design is sleek and neat, with a nice overall fusion of looks and function. While the CPU area may look tight due to the motherboard’s small form factor, neither that area, nor any others are space constrained. The DIMM slots are a bit close for comfort to the primary PCI-Express x16 slot, but you shouldn’t have much of an issue inserting or removing DIMMs with a video card installed.

A nice layout and it overclocks like its full-sized counterparts…what’s not to like?
