I thought so to ,but even though there is only 4 Dimms on the 7 , there is 2 more Chokes ,so who knows? Made more for OC'ing W/One dimm per channel?

Even if UD7 is aimed at OCers and having more than 1 RAM per channel is counter-productive OCing wise, what's keeping them from offering say 8 DIMMs for someone who'd like to reach 64GB and sometimes go down to 32/16 GB for OC runs? The Gigabyte way is to buy 2 boards i order to have varied uses?

I've seen Asus's Rampage X79 and altough can't tell which is the better performer, I know Asus allows for both usage models.

Because the people who like to reach 64gb for workstation/vm and other high computer uses MOSTLY aren't the sorts of people who bench the same machine at those levels. They are very few and far between. if you look at the original x58 OC, it has spacing and a special setup just for insulation for extreme cooling. If you are one of those people, look at the ud5. for true UD7 users, it is useless. And if you can afford 64gb of ram, then by all means you can afford not 2 but like 5 separate mobos. It makes perfect sense as to why they kept it just for quad channel. The only type of ram I see this even worth working with are the hypers, like the super talent project x and such.

Why does the UD3 do 4 way sli/xfire, but the UD5 only does 3 way?

Because the UD3 only LOOKS like it could support 4 way sli/xfire. If you look at the specifications of the boards from the IDF 2011 event, only the UD7 specifically states it supports 4 way sli/xfire at all. The others support sli and crossfire, but there is no specific mention of 4 way.

Read my mind 2011. The UD5 is pretty nice

Ud3 was supposed to also be Oc board too. It does 4 way.
