Gigabyte Z87-D3HP (LGA 1150) Motherboard Review

Introduction


GB Z87-D3HP (5)

Gigabyte’s range of Z87 motherboards have already been a big hit with system builders. In particular two motherboards from that series that we checked out – Z87X-UD3H and Z87X-UD4H which we reviewed here and here – have been very popular. Gigabyte’s series of Z87 motherboards have struck a real chord with those who care about aesthetics but Gigabyte’s motherboards have also impressed with their drive towards higher audio quality and very aggressive pricing.

Today we have a motherboard from Gigabyte that falls slightly below the Z87X-UD3H but still retains that same styling and a relatively high-end feature set for a Z87 motherboard. The raw specifications of this Gigabyte Z87X-D3HP motherboard we have here aren’t that dissimilar from the MSI Z87-G43 motherboard we reviewed recently except this motherboard has a much stronger focus on aesthetics and better connectivity. For a mid-range Z87 motherboard the Z87-D3HP has everything a single GPU system builder could need thanks to Gigabyte’s decision to add abundant connectivity – PCI, extra USB 3.0, Intel (not Realtek) Gigabit Ethernet and 8 channel audio. As with all Z87 motherboards you get the natively provided six SATA III ports and PCIe 3.0 X16 link. Other PCIe connectivity is provided via the Z87 chipset such as a PCIe 2.0 X16 (x4 electrical) slot and a pair of PCIe 1X slots. Below you can see a detailed specification summary:

    I’ve really come to like Gigabyte mobo’s over the past couple of years and their UEFI BIOS software suite has improved dramatically to what I remember and although I don’t think it’s quite as polished as Asus’s, it’s not far off. My test bench & personal rig both currently use Gigabyte mobo’s.

    “would of” should be “would have” in a few places. Good information though!
