The only difference I can see is that the MOSFET cooling is different on all three, being: UD4 > UD3P > UD3H

Other than that, like you said, I don't see any difference other than the number of USB and SATA ports.

i have the ud4 and i love it. only downside to these is boot looping. any time you get a BSOD or have to manually retsart the comp it boot loops 3 or more times and then turns on. they said this issue was fixed in the newest bios releases but mine still does it. it makes OCing a beeotch

so all the gigabyte z68 mobos have this boot loop issue?

ie, when you restart the comp, it boots 3 times before it finally boots and loads windows? how can something so major not be fixed by now?

UD4 has more power phases than the UD3, not sure if the H & P have the same or not.
post #7 of 10
The ud3h has a 4+2+1 i believe, while the ud3p has a 12 phase. The ud4 should have a 14 phase iirc.
post #8 of 10
The ud4 also has a different slot layout, its missing the pci x1 at the top of the board due to the extra cooling.

It only happens to some Gigabyte mobos along with other manufactured SB mobos. Some are lucky not to have that problem. I had a few BSODs within the past week & my UD4 has started up with no looping and I'm using the f5 BIOS.

I know one of those 3 was a little off and was too lazy to check. Thanks for correcting me.
