It'd really help if you gave us some more info to go by.

What exactly is your budget and the rest of your specs?

Personally i'd go with the Sabertooth because of vdroop issues on the UD5.

I'd go with the Sabertooth as well, mainly because they can take a hell of a beating. That and the newer Sabertooth R2 has Windows Fastboot stuff in the UEFI shell, so it's Windows 8 compliant, and it posts in about 2 seconds. (Judging by my C5FZ).

That said, if your budget were a little lower, I'd recommend the 990XA-UD3. Voltage and clock wise, it was extremely stable- however, all of Gigabyte's current AMD 990 boards are lacking UEFI, iirc.
