Thanks. I'm looking at the 1600MHz version. I can get it for $65 Canadian, the Ripjaws were about $55 so its not that much more money to go low profile and get a more desirable color.

To read the actual Vcore, you need to use one of the many hardware monitoring programs like HWiNFO64 or HWMonitor (or use a voltmeter if your board has the probe points available).
CPU-z should also report Vcore, but it sometimes reports Vtt on some Gigabyte boards. The latest beta version (64 or 32 bit) may have fixed the issue, but I haven't tried it yet.

yes, the latest official release of cpu-z lists the Vtt where VCore should be displayed. However, as valvehead stated, the latest beta versions (which he linked to) will give you the correct VCore display. thumb.gif

BTW if anybody was wondering about maximum amplifier output of UD5H, it's seems to be 32Ω . It is pretty weak, though I have expected that.

you can buy 'em on ebay if you want 'em bad enough..

ebay is horribad i remember when i was a young lad who saved up and could afford a used radeon 9800 on ebay so i can play bf2 and then 2 days later nothing but artifacts! thats was alot of money to me then. never again! also dont trust open box mobos from big companies like newegg either, i had 3 go bad in a row(2 straight doa and looked like someone hardcore overclocked with it....)(when i was young and barely had any money). i haven't touched used in over 10 years.

i rather buy a brand new cheap ecs or biostar then get a used or open boxed top of the line asus or gigabyte.

So, it seems you used to have a similar setup like I have (X58 and i7@4.2Ghz).
How do you feel now, with your new Z77 system? Is there any visible performance or something? smile.gif

UD5H User's Manual just updated! Now at 1002.

One thing I noticed is that the restriction of DDR3 1600 memory to IB, has been removed. An oversight, a correction...I wonder? Does GB ever release a "What's Changed" reference somewhere?

That is encouraging. I found that really odd because the explanation I've been given for that restriction was that 1600 is not officially supported, meanwhile the product is heavily geared towards overclocking.
