single gpu, no not at all. like raisethe3 said, unless you're going to use more then that it's not worth it. personally i plan to use 5 gpus so the ud7 is a must. redface.gif

As far as overclocking is concerned, would it be better to pick up lets say the 990x instead of the 990fx ud5 since the 990x uses a traditional 8+2 while the ud5 uses driver mosfets?

My requirements are probably for a single video card and MAYBE two.

I read that driver mosfets can fail when pushed and this is my number one concern, although I'm sure Gigabyte has some high quality ish under that sink.

If you look closely, there are screws on the sides of the ud7's heat sinks. Do you think this could mean that the part of the sink with the color highlight is detatchable? If so, that would be pretty cool. I might have to get one, and re anodize the colored part to red or something. The orange is the only thing bad about the board imo tongue.gif

What RAM would be good to pair with the UD7?

It supports DDR3 2000(O.C.)/1866/1600/1333/1066. I currently have 1333 (see sig rig) but if I'm going to buy a new MB I want to get RAM to match it. My plans are to OC my 1090T (current MB is lacking in OC) until I BD comes out. I may not jump on BD right away but I'd like to buy RAM now with the consideration that I will go with BD later.

Looks like it. Go for it! I may go with nickel plating.

Better Power Phase = Better Overclocking. As you see by my Extreme overclock, 1.8V with the UD5 which used 8+2 power phase and driver mofsets.

I don't know what board I'm getting now. UD7 is $260 shipped on Newegg, while the UD5 is a mere $200. $60 is quite a steep price to pay for the extras the UD7 offers, but I could mod a power button/reset into my tech bench, CMOS switch doesn't matter and hopefully I wont need the post code LED thing as all my parts as of now are confirmed working.

But wait. I'll be using this board until around 2014, when AM3B dies. I might go Tri-fire within 3 years. UD5 doesn't support that. Neither does the high end ASRock, high end BIOSTAR, current available high end MSI OR the current available high end ASUS.

Giving NewEgg a quick call about a price drop on the UD7.

Would it be possible to put 6xHD5770s on this board? Assuming single slot, enough power, no crossfire.

The draw for those cards is 108 watts at full load so I'm not worried about power. I'm worried about the system booting up. *lol*

Even if they run at 1x that doesn't really matter. I'm not aware of any limitations on the number of GPUs (non crossfire).

I assume having 6 PCI Express 2.0 x16 slots means you can put 6 cards in, but I'd like to make sure before I ordered it. tongue.gif

It would work fine long as they are all single slot cards.
