-posts with my tested and stable 7950 - I think you can probably understand that with a 3 monitor setup, I'd rather not throw away several hundred megahurtz
-runs with its north bridge at low enough temps not to give me 2nd degree burns if I touch it (and run a reasonable overclock stable)
-has slot layout that doesn't force you to cram a second, over-clocked graphics card cheek-by-jowl next to the first one, thus eliminating any meaningful airflow
-has LLC. This rules out several older Rev. Motherboards, like the Gigabyte 1.0 versions of the UD3, UD5, and UD7.
So I could confirm the last two items by reading specs and looking at pictures, but confirming the first two items (especially the first) has required trial and error, hence the time consuming search. I am taking your advice, however. I'm set on a Gigabyte 990FX-UD7. The delay is in confirming the Rev. 1.1 version. I'm not paying $200 for a UD7 through newegg only to hold my breath and find out a week from now that it's a 1.0.
Patience, my padawan. Patience!

I don't think they sell the rev 1.0 anymore. I bought a Gigabyte motherboard last year from Newegg and it was Rev 1.1.

been hard slog messing around lol with my messing i find raising bus speed high and stick to 18.5 multi is the way to go lol

It is NOT wise to be cheap on motherboard quality the UD3 is NOT a board for overclockers. It has inadequate capacitors and inadequate controls on voltages. Get either a UD7 or as I prefer the Asus Crosshairs V or Asus Sabertooth. Well worth the extra $50-$60.

IDK, I think it's the best overclocking board you can get for under $140. Mine isn't limited by the board, its my cooling system. If I had better cooling I could get up there with my chip. Also keep in mind that I have an 8320 and it takes more voltage to get where I need to be. Overall I'm satisfied with my UD3 and 8320 @ 4.6GHz. It's stable and under 60C at load, performance is great over here.

Stop hatin' on my board, them be fightin' words 'round here...

The UD3 and both ASUS boards you mentioned all have 8+2 phase power.

I don't think you know what you're talking about.

Yeah, I hear you. Thing is, all the UD5s and UD7s in stock with my local store chain (Canada Computers) are all Rev. 1.0, so I'm not going to make any assumptions about old stock being all cleared out. I really like the UD3, but Gigabyte screwed it up for me by eliminating the heat pipe they used to have on their mid-range boards. Even my 790X-UDP4 board has a heavy duty heat sink on the northbridge and VRMs and a heat pipe, and that board was $125 and wasn't even an FX chipset. What's happened to their reputation for 'overbuilding'? If the UD3 only had a frigging heatpipe, my problem would be solved. This is what's slowing this process down for me. Having to test out other brands only to find they've got other issues.

I stand corrected on power phasing, but the bios choices for LLC on that board and even on other Gigabyte boards on not as numerous or flexible as on a Crosshairs V. That is a fact.

Get it from Newegg, they actually sell their stocked items and they collect less dust! biggrin.gif
Also on my UD3 the VRM heatsink gets way hotter than my NB heatsink, so if they were connected by a heatpipe that extra heat would just warm my NB up more. I'm glad their isn't a heat pipe to be honest.

Dude you have GOT to learn how to use the quote function. It's really difficult to figure out what you said and what you are quoting. Type your comment AFTER the [./quote] code...
