Well it's a pretty great motherboard, I'd keep that.

There's a review here:

I love the mobo and chose it for a reason, but it's there no gain at all going to a up5?

There's a big gain going to the UP5, that thing is amazing. Just no real gain going to the UD4 or UD5.

Edit: Should probably add that upgrading your mobo is only worth it if you want to do extreme overclocking, if you just have your CPU sat at 4.5GHz then there's no point upgrading really.

There are sparse plus: Single-package VRM's, Intel NIC, ALC898... no difference you could notice imo.

Even for 5ghz@1.5v i dont see why you would need anything more than the ud3h... or really the z77x-d3h or maybe z77-d3h when you get down to it. Hasnt there been ivy world records on just the ud3h?

I mean I'd rather have a ud3h than my ud5h simply because there's no ps/2 port on the ud5h (how absurd!) but resell value and the fact microcenter gave me $30 to trade in my ud3h for a ud5h have forced me with this piece of crap ;/

like what 'market' is sitting there saying the ud3h isn't enough, the ud4h is a better choice? besides like that one guy who needs those 2 marvell ports i dont see why you'd need more than the ud3h.

I just picked up one used from a forum member here. Glad to get off my GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 rev 1.3, it didn't like the lack of LLC. Although I was still able to hit 4.8Ghz 3570K stable with it. But once you install the newest beta bios which is the only one that supports IVY OCing, you lose LLC. So with this new board I hope to fine tune my voltages and maybe shoot for 5Ghz smile.gif Plus this board fits my color scheme -just gotta figure out how to remove those blue stripes from the heatsinks wink.gif
