Yes, you should get the product that has the features that are important to you. I personally don't put much weight in OC ram as it provides little to no real world performance gain in the applications that I use the most (i.e., BF3). I don't understand your statement about Gigabyte software but that is not important. What is important is that you get something that works for you. ASUS is pretty solid and I also don't have any experience with dealing with their customer support; however I had used their board for the last 5 yrs and was pretty satisfied with the build quality.

One guy had two UD5Hs. One of them did the same thing as yours, and second was fine. He ended up RMAing the defective one. Unfortunately for you, it seems that you have the same case.

It's all over reviews, even sin's. Read them and then you'll understand it.

Memory OC was just an example, but not the primary reason for getting this board. Build-in fan controllers was one, better general OC, more user friendly bios, much better software support and even the best built-in audio that a motherboard could ever have.

I tried all bios and i solved the vcore problem after installed the f10 bios. Now is fine and i can set manually the vcore voltage. I hate rma and i think that is not an hardware problem but an issue from not good bioses..

Thirdly, HWMonitor Pro and SpeedFan simply do not control PWM fan speed, period, even though they are advertised to be capable of it. Fourth, and worst of all: there is not a single fan controller on the market that controls PWM fans with 4-pin connectors. No joke!
The fact that there is no demand for these minimum requirements, from a fan controller to a firmware fix, suggests that hardly any consumers spend the time to figure these things out (far from rocket science)!
When I bought my UD5H boards they were just out and there wasn't any information out about the fan headers, but now a little searching will find that fan control on these boards is limited.
I can certainly understand your frustration, and Gigabyte really dropped the ball on the fan headers. But since my rigs are water cooled I don't have much fuss with controlling fans. In the end I hardly think denigrating the collective IQ of the consumer is useful, since we have no control on what features a board gets. If you're an early adopter you suck it up and find a work around, if you're just getting the board and don't know then it's on you for not doing the research.
caveat emptor.

Points well taken. But I feel that there's still some work to be done in getting applications like SpeedFan and HWMonitor Pro+ to come around and support this UD5H motherboard, which I'm beginning to assume they DON'T. Currently, I simply cannot control PWM fan speeds after booting into Windows 7 64-bit -- and again, the BIOS controls before that are pathetic. Does anyone agree that the lack of PWM control is solely in the hands of application developers after booting into Windows, on a motherboard-specific basis? Since EasyTune6 doesn't hardly work and crashes constantly, it isn't (so far) an option. I stand by the comment that so long as people make excuses for these manufacturers, they'll relish the slack and never do anything without our demands.

I'm controlling my Arctic cooling F14 fans which are 4-pin pwm fans using a lamptron FC4. Its just a standard rheostat.
That is just like any other fan controller, based upon 3-pin connectors (using an adapter for 4-pin fans). It does not make use of the PWM functionality of the fans, and reverts to vanilla voltage control that is the inferior performance characteristic of 3-pin fans that cost quite a bit less.

Anyone know the SLI spacing on the uD5H in mm or slots? I need to order a watercooling SLI bridge and need either of those two measurements.

It is 3 slot spacing like most of the mainstream Z77 SLI ready boards, so if you place a 2 slot GPU in the first PCIE3.0 slot(slot 2 of 7), it will cover slots 2 &3, leaving slot 4 open between it and Slot 5(the second PCIE3.0 Board).

My ASUS P8Z77-V have the same PCIE slot(3 slot space, slots 2 & 5 are the top 2 PCIE3.0 slots, using the 2 slot Gigabyte 670 Windforce) layout so I will post its picture to help you visualize:




As you can see the card occupies 2 slots and there is 1 slot space between the two cards.

2 expansion slots between first and second PCI-E. 4 slots of total lenght. Spacing in mm should be the same on all boards... Something like this should do. You can get something like this to be safe.
