I also have my UD5H connected to a Pioneer AVR connected to two JBL floor standing speakers and use the on-board Realtek. No complaints

They would have to go orange for the UP7. After already sleeving with blue and black with arthritic hands I ain't gonna change now. Guess I'll stick with the UD5H for now.

Same here, The 1st thing I did when I read that was start listening. I have used a set of Bose, cheap-o ear buds of numerous mfg,s, and an external set of PC Boston Acoustics. No static or popping. I retired a Sound Blaster Audigy because of the newer onboard sounds.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I like to think I am some what of a fine quality audiophile. Here is a link to my system. The bottom pic is not up to date as the VCR is now a Blue Ray, the major components are Onkyo.....

The reflection in the screen is whats playing on my beloved Hitachi Plasma.

All matching and large formatt a 7.1 system.

Dahlquist out of Canada derived from the Marantz family way back. These particular components were near the last in their line as they pissed all the major players off by releasing the same or better quality for more realistic prices, so they bought them out and buried them to kill the competition. Heh! I love it when I get a Bose (Size Don't Matter) listener over here.

Just about to pull the trigger on the Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H and buy it but I want to minimize troubleshooting angst (and all these horror stories I hear) by making sure I have absolutely fully compatible ram. I heard that gigabyte & kingston work closely together to ensure memory compatibility. That said, will the Kingston Technology HyperX 8 GB dual-channel kit (KHX1600C9D3K2/8GX) play well with this board? Anyone here using it with their GA-Z77X-UD5H? AnandTech finally posted their review on this board yesterday. Hope the prices don't start to soar before I order within the next couple of days due to a another good review.

Look in my system specs. I have some Samsung green RAM 4-sale 16GB - $65.00, because I just did not want to have to clock RAM. So I got the Kingston Hyper-X Genesis 2133.
I ran MEMtest across them very thoroughly with no problems. I'm running a 4.5 Stable Clock with the Kingston on board.

prices don't change because of reviews. They change because of prices of other products and demand. And andatech hasn't said anything everyone already said 5 times.

I'm using the Kingston KHX1600C9D3T1K2/8GX in one of my UD5H rigs, G Skill Trident 2400 in the other, no problems. If Kingston says that one is compatible it probably is.

Thanks for the info. I know this ram isn't rated for 2400MHz but have you been able to OC at all? Not that I plan on doing much OCing but I might dabble.

Out of interest, can someone tell me what ethernet port is the intel one on the back of the UD5H and how it differs to the Atheros one?

Top one is Intel.

In theory Intel nic should provide less latency and less load on CPU, but that's only in theory.

This thread
should answer all your questions.

Intel is the top one(LAN2) when it's installed(next to the DisplayPort & eSATA).

As far as the diffference I wasn't sure but found this quote from "Moeks" on OC/UK:

"For all intents and purposes, for normal use they are equal. Having said that, if you are pushing the gigabit connection to it's limits ...the Intel benches higher in terms of maximum transfer rates. At least from what I had seen so far it does. I wouldn't worry about it though tbh."
