Want to go all out? CHV.

Will the UD7 be a good alternative? Yes.

I'm also starting to think I might want to water cool my graphics card(s) as I'm almost certainly going to throw another 7950 into my rig as well.

Hmmm. I think buying the Vishera has triggered some latent enthusiasm which has been laying dormant in me for a few years. My god, where will all this overclocking madness end?devil.gif

The UD 7 is currently being sold new for $164.99 after $30 rebate.
I used to have positive experiences with open box items at the egg, they came in original packaging and simply looked like returned items. But lately , the last 3 items I have bought from as open box from them have came in plain white boxes and look as though they have been through the "refurbishing" process ( the packaging looked like godzilla had played raquetball with them). The last item was the most disappointing of them all, a top of the line ASUS crosshair V. I installed it , hit the power button and click click boom, it sent my seasonic gold into short circuit protection:eek:. Took it out of the case and tried it again... click click etc. Fortunately , it didn't hurt any of the components I had installed on it in the process. I hope others have better luck than I did.

How do we feel about the ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0? I have a guy that wants to buy my rig. I had it listed on craigslist a month ago with the FX-8150 and I told him I switched CPUs and he wants it even more now. With what hes going to pay I would like to rebuild with a 8350/8320 but I want to try a different board.

Yes I have. I have actually tried the M5A99FX Pro 2.0 (which is practically identical to the M5A99X 2.0) and it's a very good motherboard. I found the northbridge/VRMs heatsink cooling system was better than the one on the Gigabyte motherboard, probably mostly due to a slightly beefier heatsink on the northbridge and the existence of a heatpipe that the UD3 lacks. I have mentioned this a couple of times already, but I discovered two problems, the second of which forced me to return what was otherwise a perfect motherboard for the money:
1) The board does not support core-unlocking for the Phenom II X2 550BE I've been running just fine for 3 years on my old Gigabyte board. This was not a deal-breaker, because I'm planning to put the FX-8350 into it anyhow.
1) The board would not post with my bios-flashed Gigabyte Windforce 7950 graphics card. This was the deal-breaker for me. Even when I booted with the factory bios (which did work just fine) I found that even MSI Afterburner was unable to get the board up to even 1000MHz stable. This was only true on this Asus motherboard, and it was the same on two different M5A99FX Pro 2.0s. I don't fully understand why, but nothing I tried got my 7950 to run on the Asus board at even the modest overclock the 7970 bios gave me. So I'm going Gigabyte.
So, unless you've got a bios-flashed AMD graphics card, or you plan to try to unlock cores on a Phenom II CPU, go ahead and consider the Asus M5A99x or M5A99FX boards. They've both got digital power (6+2 phases), and they feel like quality. Having said that, I am splurging on the Gigabyte 990FXA-UD7 1.1 due to my exact circumstances, requirements and the slot layout/chipset/VRM cooling. The Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 1.1 is an excellent board as well, with the one caveat that, for me taste, the northbridge cooling is not really up to snuff for overclocking as it is out of the box. If you have no qualms about working with a hotter north bridge chip, and/or on a custom-cooling solution for it, go ahead and grab the Gigabyte.
Good luck!

There you go read above

or if you can talk him into it keep your board I have my 990FXA-GD65 up for sale pm me if interested I even have another 8350 to bundle it with smile.gif

unless he is overclocking.. then i prolly wouldn't buy my board

and look at this deal http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371032

My 880 gigabyte board was solid with my PH II 965 but my CHVF Rv 1.xx with a 8150 and now an 8350 is the best board Ive ever owned. Im actually thinking about getting the CHVF-Z because of the two extra SATA ports
