I sold the V already, couldn't stand AI Suite II's Memory leak issues, poor registry coding causing Xpert 2 and other utilities to become totally useless because Tune-up utility destroys them all, plus I recovered most of the $$ I spent on it anyway. That plus with ASUS's North America Warranty department I don't want to risk RMAing it in the future.

YOU CAN offset OC in bios but once it's set you will freeze upon re-entering bios. At least my OC does, I think it's because the voltage is simply too low in bios or something. I have ZERO problems booting into windows or running the OC, it just freezes in bios for some odd reason. Can't explain why and I don't know anyone else who has this problem so it might just be me.


The Gigabyte UD5h is a SOLID MOBO and my DPC latency is in the 30-50 US at idle. When I have audio video running it's a stable 100-150 US and that is mostly coming from my DGX PCI-E soundcard. The DPC latency shown in that graph is HIGHLY deceptive as my own latency using DPC latency checking is only around 30-50 US. I do have HPET disabled though.

ALSO that GRAPH is HIGHLY deceptive because I have another computer running an ASUS Z77 V right next to me and it has a higher DPC latency than this computer running on a Gigabyte UD5H so please take that graph with a grain of salt. I can post pictures if you would like!

Thanks for that info.

Can believe I forgot to calcluate the Sales Tax when comparing Newegg and MC prices, since Newegg don't have presence in my state. Counting a 7% sales tax and $30 in gas for Microcenter, and the bundle shipping discount for Newegg:

The UD5H+3570K MC bundle and the UP4+3570K Newegg bundle cost the same.

Since they both cost the same, I am now leaning back toward UP4 and Newegg.

The Newegg bundle for UP5-TH is with 3770K, so going with UP5 over UP4 sets me back $55 plus the $30 in bundle saving I lose, as much as I love ALC 898 and Clear CMOS, can't justify those for $85.

How much better is UP5's VRM and chokes compared to UP4?

Grab the UP4 if they cost the same, you also avoid the 4hs drive!
I have the UD5H and it's rock solid man, 0 issues so far. I have recorded 3 oc profiles, one of them being 4.2ghz with offset voltage and EIST and C states enabled for power saving. Never had an issue with it...You get freezes in the bios when your vcore is not enough for your given oc, but not like these guys above mention. Must be a defective board or bios version.

OK, grabbed Anand's UP4 conclusion:
Quote:
PowIRstage and Thunderbolt are great things to have on a motherboard but at the minute their implementation is an added luxury and pushes boards out of their price bracket. As a non-TB user, PowIRstages make more sense in a mini-ITX system or when I am pushing for an overclock. The UP4 TH did overclock better than most of the boards it must be said, but individually I would prefer the extra SATA, extra USB 3.0 and extra NICs that the UD5H provides.

Since I have no use for:
Extra Sata( won't run more than 2 SSD and SATA III is wasted on HDD & Optical, plus Intel > Third party)
Extra USB3.0( Same problem, not enough 3.0 device to even use all 4 Intel 3.0 ports, plus Intel > Third party)
Extra NIC( Realtek 8111 I assume is on par with UD5H's primary Intel NIC?), I don't need the second one as I don't LAN.

Seems UP4 would be a better option based on my preference.

lower you LLC to "Standard" or "Low" /disable C3/6 and enjoy "Offset" again wink.gif
