Sorry, to many open tabs, thought I was in the AMD 7800 club. Nah we call a graphics card a card and a motherboard a board here in South Africa. I need the measurements of the graphics card, the Windforce 3x cooler as far as I know is the same size across Gigabyte's AMD/Nvidia range and on the 680 the length is 270mm so 280mm for the 7870 is just ridiculous. Sorry this is a little off topic.

Joining the club as my Z77X-UD5H WB will be here on Thursday. Really wanted the Sniper 3, but they're not out yet, and I needed a board for my new build now. I'll swap it out later once the Sniper finally releases.

Hey sin im debating between ud5h and d3h, i wont ever use more than one GPU but im concerned about the via audio the d3h has and for its ability to handle constant high overclocks 24/7. so the question is the via audio good? and can the d3h handle a 24/7 high overclock in the 4.6 to 4.8 range? will it last as long? im probably gonna get ud5h for the longer lasting parts(presumably by me)

Sound is perfect,better then Realtek for sure.
I running 4.8 GHZ , 24/7 in ambient temperatures +33C without any problem.
As I also no need this additional "bits and pcs" D3H(X) is right choice.

BTW when you get your board I am sure you will use a 2600K or 2500K these boards work better with Ivy, just FYI it likes to hard reset everything you restart with Sandy. I reported it and it should get fixed soon. At least on the UD5H. Hard reset means it will shut down fully and start right back up, no issues. Except when you OC it might say OC fail and then show that you are currently running at your OC and then need you to enter BIOS and hit F10 lol, sandy sucks. lol Wierd thing is this doesn't happen with ivy.

Out of curiosity, what are said features? smile.gif I still haven't pulled the trigger on a new board yet, convince me to go with Gigabyte if you're bored tongue.gif (I've had good experiences with their 880 series AMD boards and P45 series Intel boards in the past)

Well the fiberglass in the PCB reduces humidity damage, in certain regions of the world where boards are sold there are a very high numbers of RMAs due to humidity, the fiberglass PCb is a bit more expensive but accounts for it.

2oz PCB also isn't something normally done. I know ROG boards do have this, but the rest of the mainstream asus lineup might not, it is expensive b/c of price of copper, but it also allows you to not heatsink some MOSFETs like on the UD3H.

The Anti-static (ESD) ICs are added onto the USB ports, as are one fuse per port (the fuses allow the high current output to charge the new ipad for instance(which requires 3x USB spec, and gigabyte provides this and proved it)) they also allow one port to go down and not all ports ont eh same fuse like MSI does , there actually are ICs placed so that they can protect components in case of a shock of you discharging into a USB device. Like if you were to plug in a device with a short in it into an MSI back panel, 4 of your USB ports would go down, but on a gigabyte board it would take out that single port and no more.

The Anti-surge IC is a small IC placed on the input from the 24-pin connector which will take a hit and allow operation if your PSu decides to crap out.

Those features weren't advertised in Ultra Durable 3 but are in Ultra Durable 4, ultra durable 4 however does include everyone of ultra durable 3, just called different things like high-temp protection is low-RDS ON MOSFETs for all switching power supplies, with the 2 OC copper, and the japanes caps, the power failure is dual BIOS and the anti-surge, just named different on the front end. .
