For now the answer is no, maybe when they implement some other features then maybe.
Very good to hear mate! smile.gif

I knew EVGA had this but I ask this question because I just saw biostar have the same... so it will be nice if GB will have it rolleyes.gif

Hi. New to the discussion and I'm seriously considering the UD5H (love the layout & features) as my first upgrade since an ancient Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe (one of my all time least favorite motherboards due to the cramped, horrible board layout) but I've been reading a lot about lockups & freezes at the newegg user reviews about this board and I'd like someone to recommend ram that fairly guarantees me stability & perhaps allows some mild overclocking? Since I'm not planning on extensive OCing I'm wondering if the $45 G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL) will be sufficient. Are there other brands with even better compatibility for the UD5H around the same price? Also, if I dislike the onboard sound I have an old SB Audigy that I'd like to put in. Is one of the PCI boards that can cause instability? I plan on pairing this board with a i5-3570k. One more question: I'm doing my upgrade piecemeal and wonder if an 380 watt Earthwatts will power it sufficiently until I get a better PSU. Also have Nvidia 9800GT 512MB video card I'd like to rrecyle until I get a better dGPU. Thanks for your help.

Imho UD5H is very good board, there are some bugs in UEFI, but nothing major.
For onboard sound, i found that on board sound is very good on this board, much better than on Asus REIII that i owned.

Seasonic is more efficient. Otherwise both are good.

If you want more detailed answers and more alternatives, ask the question in power supply section of this forum smile.gif.

Because some of the RAM is reserved for the iGPU. You can change this in the BIOS.

No idea. Could be. Check the BIOS and see how muhc RAM it's got locked off for it.

the seasonic is a better PSU, but the corsair will do the job just fine.

Hi Everyone. (Edit: condensed my post..it was Huge! :0)

I am in the process of building my first pc in over 6 years. The last time I built a desktop system was when AGP was king.

I picked up an I7 Ivy Bridge 3770K cpu.

I read various MB reviews and tired to settle on a board. ASUS was out as I found an astonishing amount of quality issues in various user reviews that really scared me to get one despite the fact that on paper they looked awesome. They were also very pricey compared to others. After some research I thought that Gigabyte would be the best choice.

So I just picked up a UD-5H tonight.. Then I went on New Egg and read some of the user reviews and was shocked as well as concerned at the high amount of problems that people were having with this board. I instantly had buyers remorse and I was like "Oh ****" However I figured out that many complaints were due to people not knowing what they were doing, or not updating their bios. From what I have read here the latest bios seem to fix some problems.

But still I am alarmed . Should I worry? I want to build a stable system.

In regards to the UD5H I keep seeing comments that the UD5h has issues with the M-Sata, USB, PCI cards, and it exhibits freezing, and inconsistencies on ivy bridge under Win 7. Allot of this info seems outdated though. Is this stock or over clocked? Is this still happening on the latest BIOS?

Can someone give me the current status on the stability? (I am sorry but I can't read all the comments int his mega thread).

Was the UD-5H the wrong board to buy in my case if I want a hassle free experience? Should I have went with a cheaper 3DH or just a $140 Intel board or a MSI? (I really like that Sniper though).

In regards to the Sniper I don't need all those features as I am not a hardcore over clocker or plan on doing tripple SLI but I have not seen as many negative comments in regards to the board performance and stability as others and I like the idea of having wi-fi, blu-tooth, and well options. I really like Gigabyte as I think their engineering is good.

Which one of these boards is the most stable for general performance on Ivy Bridge? which one is the most hassle free board to set up and get up and running at stock or slight overclock? I do have a full tower CM storm case.

Sniper G1 3 (love all the features)
UD5H (thinking of exchanging for the wi-fi version if I keep it)
UD3H (cheaper option then UD5H less SATA)
D3H (cheap solid option???)
UP5H TB (Thunderbolt also sounds sexy as I do audio work).
Intel (assuming it would work out of the box but not sure now)
something else from someone else? (other vendor)
Maybe Asus Maximus Formula? No? too much? Some posts keep saying this is good??Not sure about Asus quality though.

since the UD5H, Sniper share the same components do they have the same issues?

Also will the G.SKILL Ares Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-1866C10D-16GAB work on any of these Gigabyte boards? SHould I get the PC1600 instead of t hese 1866?

I bought a Noctua D-14 so I needed some low profile ram. The original Corsair Vengeance I had to send back to New Egg because of clearance issues. I forgot about that. I guess they now put these dumb super tall heat spreaders which I don't think actually do anything??? (no water cooling for me).

(RAM link G-Skill) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231560

Can someone also recommend some RAM if the one I listed above will not work. On the Gigabyte RAM compatibility page I could not find anything higher then 4GB or the high profile ram only.

Would this be a better choice:
Corsair Vengeance LP Performance Memory Modules 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600MHz (PC3 12800) CML16GX3M2A1600C10

http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Vengeance-Performance-Modules-CML16GX3M2A1600C10/dp/B007TG8QRW/ref=cm_lmf_tit_7_rsrsrs0

1additional question:

1. Why would you need a dual LAN on a MB if they are not the same vendor (2 Intel) and you can't pair them? What is the benefit to having dual Lan for gaming?

Please help. I just need a recommendation on a stable board that can still allow for overclocking in the future. . (not saying Gigabyte is bad or trolling. I just want as little compatibility issues as possible from the available options on the market.). Thank you.
