Is UP5 really worth the extra $50 over the UD5H? Is the new Ultra Durable 5 and newer VRMs worth it? Am I going to see any difference while OCing to about 4.5-4.6ghZ?

Also, does the UD5H or UP5 have some sort of instant boot or instant on function seen on other boards like ASUS, Asrock?

I really don't know if I should go with the UP5. I'm just looking at it because of it's better looking color scheme but also saw the reviews about it's compatibility with certain PSUs. I really need info about PSU compatibility with the UP5 as I can't risk it. I'm going to bring the motherboard to the Philippines where I have my Corsair TX850W (not the v2 or M version). Thanks.

I like the UD5H more, for a well rounded rig. UD5H has better onboard audio, which is important to me. Both will get you 4.5/4.6 easily. The UP5 has better VRM's, but it's not a huge difference, and with your desired OC results, it won't matter. And the UD5H is cheaper. I wouldn't sweat the Ultra Durable 5, either. It's not much different than Ultra Durable 4, which is already solid as hell.

And your Corsair PSU will work fine on both boards. No incompatibility issues to speak of.

Instant boot is a "marketing" feature by ASRock and Asus. It's more of an advanced sleep mode. I wouldn't consider that specific feature when buying a board. It's nothing special, just get either of the Gigabytes and you'll be happy. Good Luck!

Planning to get the UD5H. Any problems on the UD5H that I should be aware of? Compatibility issues on PSU (UP5 TH has according to some newegg reviews). Is the UP5 TH worth it extra $50 over the UD5H?
post #5344 of 6656
Every board has compatibility issue with some PSUs. You won't know unless you try. Even two samples of the same PSU model may give different results with the same motherboard.

UD5H and UP5 have the same audio. According to benchmarks on techpowerup, UP5 audio performs better as well.

Overall UP5 worth the price difference because its covered with WiFi adapter which is $30 of value by itself. It comes down to whether you need it or not.

Am I allowed to ask several questions I have on my mind even if they might've already been answered?
I have the Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H motherboard

Guys, I just ordered UD5H from Amazon.com. Anyone ordered from them before? I just wanna know because I want the newer revision 1.1 board. Can I return it if ever and have an exchange for a 1.1 revision board?

I have the following specs:
GTX660TI gigabyte sc
Kingston hyper x 120gb SSD for operation system and programs
2TB WD GREEN for storage
Intel i7 3770k with normal fan
Thermaltake overseer case - 3 fans - #-pin
and a thermaltake 800 watt psu
Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H
LG dvdv drive
and Kingston 2x4gb 16000mhz ram

So what do I change in the bios, to overclock? I've read stuff on overclock......but just wondering with having the same Motherboard, I can get an Idea on how far it'll go....
And yes I know I need a aftermarket Fan upgrade. Either the popular Hyper 212-Evo by CoolerMAster ~$35 AUS. Or the corsair liquid cooling h100 - ~$140 AUS. I think thats the best one out at the moment?
OR what other fans are good choices?

And whats the deal with Thermal paste? Does the brands matter or are they all the same?
And is there any way to adjust my Fans speed because they are 3-pin and the motherboard has 4-pins? I have searched the thread on this a little....
That's all for now, thanks.
