I've looked into both enough and i don't know the real valuable difference between them. Their prices are $115 and $100. What's the $15 difference for?
The U stands for 2oz copper, so the board has 2oz copper, basically the u version is higher quality PCB, the extra copper can help with power quality and cooling. BUt it shouldn't make much of a difference, not many boards use 2oz copper.

Thanks
I woudl say if you are looking at the UD5H's audio, then the UD5H's ALC898 implementation is better.

I didn't take a close look at that socket, hope it was fine cause I guess I basically signed off on it. Has anyone had this experience with a motherboard at a store before? I haven't.
The metallic blue heatsinks look GREAT. So much nicer than any of the photos seem to show. I love the look. Going to put it all together tomorrow night or Thursday.
Yea some people mess up the install of the CPU, and if your board has bent pins, they usually don't cover it under warranty, because the hole socket has to be replaced. The guy IDK, was probably covering his ass b/c he is really cheap.

Love this board. Been watching the newegg review of it on Youtube to get familiar. Know everything now, waiting for my SSD and 7850 to arrive on Monday, argh.

I did a few reviews if you want to cover the board even more:

It happened at Canada Computers. Can someone tell me if this UD5H motherboard is supposed to come shrinkwrapped? Mine wasn't, it was just the cardboard box. I'm trying to make sure this wasn't used or opened before he opened it in front of me. The tape on the electrostatic bag looked untouched before he opened it.

I'm probably being overly paranoid, but does anyone think I might have compatibility issues using these sticks on a UD3H? Reason being I was looking at the "compatible memory" page on the website. I know they can't test every kit ever, but yeah I'm being paranoid aren't I?

I don't know about compatibility with the motherboard, but those have tall heat spreaders that could interfere with some CPU coolers.

Not too worried about that, re-using my H70 for this build

Ah, I mention it cause I came very close to buying ram that would have interfered with my heatsink fan, I ended up going with some low profile ram that's much shorter.

motherboards don't come shrink wrapped, at best they come in a anti-plastic bag. So yea it is fine.

You should be fine.

Yea memory vendors test out their memory on the boards to make sure they work, so you can look at GB's QVl and Corsair's.
