GIGABYTE Z77X Owners/Discussion/Information/Support Thread and Club (UD5H, UD3H, D3H, and ALL) - Page 473

post #4721 of 6656
Greetings,

I'm building a new system and was wondering what RAM y'all would recommend for a Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UDH3 and a Core i7-3770K.

I'm looking to go with a 16gb kit, 2x8gb sticks.

I've been eyeballing both of these,

Thanks,

Yea. they use the same PWM on Z77-D3H as on UD4H. I think X stands for Xtreme. Makes sense since all Z77X boards are decent clockers.

dpowellmeii, your links are broken.

Both should be fine. I would get Ripjaws because I am not fan of super tall heatsinks on Corsair RAM.

Thanks. You have any other recommendations or did I just happen to pick out the right one?

Thanks,

All RAM with same specs will perform the same... I can't really comment on good OC 8 GB sticks if there are any... so just pick whichever you like.

And what is the difference between a Xtreme and a inextreme board? I'm still favoring the digital VRM theory, reviewers can be wrong too.

Limited OC functions. Crippled VRM. Both are true comparing Z77-D3H to lets say Z77X-D3H.

what is your theory and what are reviewers wrong on other than most stuff?lol

Here are gigabyte's naming conventions, but the list is a bit outdated:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gigabyte_Technology

X i do believe stands for (e)xtreme, i think all X boards have OC capability, while non X aren't necessarily inclined too.

P stands for power when you talk about the UP5, Up4, and UP7. It is a new name convention to signify ultra durable 5, so if the board has ultra durable 5 then it will be a UP board, and have the extremely powerful and advanced VR technology, however the cost of the VRs on those boards costs a lot, so not all boards have it and not all need them, but it if just another level of durability to promote longer life of the components and higher overclocks(theoretically) even tho the typical UD3H or UD5H would OC as high as the UP boards, however the UP boards should be able to do it on less vcore.

I read that Wiki entry and it is indeed outdated.

My theory being that X stands for Digital Power Regulation vs Analog on non X boards. Only the models with an X are labeled with "Digital Power Engine'" on the Gigabyte website.

But without an official statement from Gigabyte, all we can do is guess. I only have the label for Digital Power Engine on the 'X' boards and the addmittedly obscure statement in the afore mentioned forum to go on that X stands for Digital VRM.
