The Pros:Good legacy connection support. Lots of expansion card slots - great for those looking to add parts in the future.
The Cons:Lacks the latest connectivity options - no USB 3.0 or SATA 6Gbps support. Poorly designed BIOS - hard to navigate. The Turboboost feature doesn't provide all the performance it's supposed to.
The Gigabyte GA-P55-UD3L is an ATX format motherboard that supports LGA1156 format Intel CPUs. This motherboard balances features for modern components with support for older peripherals. While it accepts up to 16GB of DDR3 memory and has 3 PCI-E slots, it also has serial and parallel ports to enable connections to older hardware.

lacks the latest connectivity options - no USB 3.0 or SATA 6Gbps support
poorly designed BIOS - hard to navigate
the Turboboost feature doesn't provide all the performance it's supposed to
the included OC software is problematic - doesn't work as expected
larger graphics cards will cover at least one of the SATA ports
poor audio header placement - the cable travels across the board
