I have G.Skill F312800CL74GBXM with the UD3 and they're working great. According to Gigabyte memory support list, there shouldn't be any problems with any Corsair RAM.

Okay man, thanks a heaps!
I'm looking forward to making the new build, but I'm kinda broke so I don't wanna buy non-compatible components .
Will give the Corsair RAM a shot and see how well that goes, I still need to buy CPU, HDD, PSU and a case so the RAM is the last thing I'm worried about (in therms of price, that is).
Anyways, you guys found any solutions for the huge voltage drop under load so far?

EDIT: Okay I fail at typing, I just saw that I wrote UD3 in my last post, when my actual motherboard model is 990FXA-D3, without the U.. anyways they look pretty much the same to me.

The D3 has 4+1 power phases, the UD3 has 8+2 phases. Just don't OC too much because you can burn out your VRMs. You should also consider getting yourself a decent heatsink for VRMs, however I don't know which ones are good. Maybe these but I'm not sure.

And get yourself a nice 120mm fan with it.

Does anyone happen to know the length of the VRM heatsyc?
I'm at work and can't measure it myself, but I'm looking into watercooling the NB/VRM's.

Found a rev. 1.1 of the UD3 on the Gigabyte web page. Would be fun to know the difference. Not that it would be any big ones, I guess. Not much to complain about the motherboard I have now. Except, there's a Bulldozer missing..

Measuring heatsink only = 100mm.
Measuring from hole to hole = 107mm.
Measuring from beginning to the end = 114mm

Uhm talking about cooling - I have another question.
The D3 has 2 holes for a heatsink on the MOSFETs, just like the UD3, but it doesn't include the heatsink itself, so I was wondering - can I buy a separate heatsink for them, not quite sure if a similar design is being sold somewhere.

So the HEATKILLER--SWX-A2-LT at 80mm in length won't work then?

The only thing I'm seeing that will work on the VRM side is the EK EK-FB GA AMD KIT

Yeah why not, the one from GA-890GPA-UD3H, GA-MA790GPT-UD3H, GA-MA790GP-DS4H, GA-MA790GP-UD3H, GA-MA790GP-UD4H boards will fit nicely if you find one.
