No gaming at all. The video card is used for seam optimization only.

Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3
AMD Phenom II X6 1090T (3,20GHz)
4x 4GB DDR3 PC1333
1000GB SATA3 HDD
1GB Nvidia GTX550Ti HDMI DX 11
550 Watt 14cm FAN Silent

Do you see a bottleneck anywhere?

I am thinking about adding a 128GB OCZ SSD with 550/500 read/write speed for the operating system.
Would this make sense?

Thanks,
Jan

Details at ebay:
http://www.ebay.de/itm/AMD-Phenom-II...item588f959283

Price is 599 Euro which translates to 821 USD.
Is this OK?
Looks well balanced to me and it's at a very good price. Ubuntu is not that demanding, so it will run fine. Not familiar with panorama stitching or anything photo related, but I would guess that you'd need all that RAM. Not bad at all. I'd say go for it.
And you wouldn't need a 128GB ssd. Maybe a 60GB Corsair Force GT SataIII. I would get one of those if I needed an ssd now.

Why wouldn't it, I don't see that much of a problem, I mean - wont the heatsink just cover the 5 VRMs and leave some empty space?
Not quite sure if there's any difference in the size of the heatsink itself, looks like it will match up with the holes on the D3 just fine, could be wrong tho.

you've got a point. I don't see why it wouldn't work.
I just compared the top down pictures and the mounting holes do line up.
I know my UD5's VRM sync is completly flat, so it's not proprietary to the ud5 board.

The heatsink is too big, don't you understand too big?

You can't fit the UD5/UD7 heatsink on your D3 or the UD3 for that matter, it's too long the holes won't fit.

It actually won't work. Benz is right.
Here is an image of the UD5 laid over the U3...
post #1047 of 12377
It isn't looking good for this UD7. It appears to have killed my £70 Roccat Kone+. Replaced it with my old mouse and that was having issues constantly turning on and off, keyboard looked like it had died but worked when plugged into the front ports.

My Corsair memory stick was far hotter than normal too.

Kone+ appears to be completely dead, won't work in any of my PCs which is pretty annoying.

A hardcore Gigabyte fan I used to be, now I'm not quite so sure.

Off course I'm right, why would I post something if I have no idea what I'm saying.

Yeah...right. Because nobody does that on web forums

Gosh.. since when asking a question here leads to raging guys saying you're wrong???
"don't you understand too big".. I don't own 50000 motherboards give me a f*** break.
I said "Not quite sure if there's any difference in the size of the heatsink itself, looks like it will match up with the holes on the D3 just fine, could be wrong tho." I never said I'm sure about it or anything, nor I tried arguing with you guys over that, just said that the layout looks identical to me.
