I could be wrong, though I don't believe I am. All you have to do...go to newegg and look at the pictures of the UD3, UD5 mobo's and look for the photo that shows the back of the board.
Look specifically on the board at the location of where the backside of the VRM's would be.....you will see nothing there, which is the location where the board warps from heat.
Now, at the newegg, look at a sabertooth board backside where the VRM's would be located and you will see a "support" that prevents the board from warping and the VRM's from losing contact with their heatsink.
That gentlemen...I believe is most of the problem. I sincerely hope this helps. My new Sabertooth will arrive on Tuesday. I wish you all well.
There are some mosfet/driver IC under that "support" on the Sabertooth..... kind of a small heatsink for them.
wow...Guys, it looks like the new UD3 is ... no comment.
I have the UD7, no problems at all with it, but still, in my opinion, its behind my CHV and SabertoothEdited by IOSEFINI - 5/18/13 at 7:28pm
