I was at IDF, i saw the board. That is my site that is cited in the source.
Anyways i am not told final specs, but from what i have seen in terms of slot configuration, that last slot is wired to the CPU.
I understand that you read something on softpedia you might take it over what i say, but in this case not so much.
BTW the UD7 is orange, because it was supposed to be the X79-OC, but from what i hear, sales told them that OC board would make potential customers not want to buy the board, thinking it was hard to setup, so the name was changed.
The UD3 fits as an OC board for a cheaper market, it should be an excellent P/PEdited by Sin0822 - 10/25/11 at 6:48pm
