With the release of Ivy Bridge processors we finally start up our reviews on Intel Z77 motherboards as well. As such we'll handle Gigabyte's GA-Z77X-D3H motherboard today.
Z77 is of course the Intel chipset predominantly released for Ivy Bridge based processors. These motherboards will have a slightly altered feature set and thus support the new Ivy Bridge apples from Intel. Good to know however is that Z77 also supports Sandy Bridge Socket 1155 based processors. That's right, your favorite Core i5 2500K and Core i7 2600K will be perfect for these motherboards as well.
The changes for Z77 can primarily be found in native USB 3.0 support as well as an upgrade towards PCie gen 3 PCIe x16 slots.
Gigabyte of course will offer a good variety of Z77 products as well and today we review the GA-Z77X-D3H in combination with Intel's new Core i7 3770K processor.
The GA-Z77X-D3H is intended for Intel's 22nm Ivy Bridge processors released moments ago, based on Socket LGA1155. And again, the motherboard also supports Sandy bridge processors like the Core i7 2600K.
Have a peek at what the GA-Z77X-D3H 'Ivy Bridge' ready Motherboard is all about.

Gigabyte Osmium review
We review the Gigabyte Osmium mechanical keyboard from Gigabyte's Aivia series. It comes with a lot of features that should be appealing to you as a gamer. For example integrated USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports (through a HUB). The Osmium is a mechanical keyboard, as such is has been equipped with RED flavored switches (preferred by many). These keys have will be long-lived and can withstand a severe beating bringing you the stuff you as a gamer like so much.
