I love my P67-UD7, personally, so I'd have to assume that the UD5 variant is probably just as awesome. That being said...

That first PCI express 1x slot is pretty much blocked by that heatsink. The only thing that you could make use of it with is probably a wireless card that cuts off right at the circuitry. However, this is a non-issue with the UD3 and UD4 boards (UD4 has a PCI arrangement kinda similar to the AMD 990 FX boards).

Also, I think Gigabyte added updated revisions to a lot of their Z68 boards which included Gen. 3 PCI express lanes with Ivy Bridge processors. If I were going to go the Gigabyte route, I'd probably go for that just for the no cost extra feature.

Hope you enjoy the board if you buy it.
