THey are final, at CES i was told like every other media person there that the boards at CES were samples with unfinished heatsinks. For the most part they were same style but with different colors, no one knew the UD5H would be light blue, so they are slightly different.

Anyways, stating your honest opinion is important.

Anyways in regards, the Maximus 5 Gene, to be honest looks plain too, the heatsinks do cover more of the board so it doesn't look naked. It kind of surprised me when ROG with the X79 came out with some very plain heatsinks, but people didn't seem to care, or i guess they were just too big of fans. Can I ask what is cut down about the G1 Sniper M3 in comparison, think of the actual function of the M3, its a mATX rig for guys that want to save money on Z77 or guys who want a portable rig?

IMO the G1 series looks good this round, like they should look.

BTW considering that these boards have a totally different BIOS than Z68/P67 none of those problems from Z678/P67 should carry over.

I think it's a reaction to the over the top style of the bullet boards. The R4E board had that ugly fan, but the vrm heatsinks weren't terrible. I still think the R3E series heatsinks looked better though.

G1 Sniper M3, wow.

Your doing it wrong Gigabyte. l2mATX

4 Sata ports, 4 Pin CPU power (Atleast a decent number of phases)

My P8P67-M-Pro does a better job, apart from having no Front USB3 Header.....


Seems they missed the mark.....Again.
They need to go back to their LGA775 days.

Ud3 only has one row of MOSFET heatsinks. I'm going asrock. Ud3+ should have heatsinks everywhere.

Great, let me dust off my old sound cards...

 

PCI-e sound card have been out for about 5 years now...  anything older than that, really is worthless because it doesn't support the latest standards anyways. I understand nostalgia & cost savings. But I think it laughable to suggest that an olden PCI card is even as good as a typical $99 Soundblaster. Let alone this $160 X-Fi HD ..? But, if you building a new system upon a new platform, I can see how your whole decision will hinge on whether or not you can stuff an outdated sound card into your 2013+ build...! (???)

 

Secondly, how specific is it, to have a legacy devices on a Gamer board, etc?  But, understandably if ur only using for a specific reason and are tied to it, I understand and you grab a utility board that allows such. But when I see PCI on a board and known it could be an (x4) PCI-e slot, it kills me. Because PCI has no future, and has no pros, except legacy.

 

Yet always easy to slap a wifi, network, etc if it pci-e.

It is there, the demand is high enough for them to have put it on there, to each his own.

Ya it's there, but its in a really horrible position. No one with a dual card setup will be able to use it. If they only put it on the other side you would have access to both PCI and PCI-e 1 at any given time. There are three PCI-e and one PCI, it should be one of the three PCI-e 1 slots covered up not the single PCI slot.
