GA-x79-UD3 vs GA-x79-UD5 - Page 2

I know I was just saying if I buy the sabertooth over the GA i wont have to worry about that. It more likely WONT happen but it's just that gut feeling that you get when buying expensive gear.

i wouldn't worry about it, but sure why not buy the sabertooth, same quality. I think its a better board than the UD3 when it comes to the features it offers too.

One of the heatsink screws on the UD3 looks dangerously close to one of the MOSFETs. If the rubber were to decay due to heat or whatever, would the screw short the MOSFET?
