For $240, do ya realy get better VRM and caps:
http://www.gigabyte.us/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4279#sp

Im wanting a solid board this time, something I can get 2-3 years out of, non of that EVGA bullcrap............ And Im OK with $200ish for a great board, but also dont like needless crap I wont use.......

Did see that this Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP5-TH has a mSATA (SSD), but looks like its only sata3gb/s, not 6gb/s? That would of been great, would of been 6gb/s, no sata cables or sata power, less wires, "I well?"

But the Extream6 dosent have all that extra crap, I wont use...........

Edited the OP, Im only wanting a 4.0Ghz overclock(and stock cpu vols, Im sure the VRM would take much of a hit?), like I said, nothing crazy.........

You sure do. Gigabyte has arguably the best VRMs currently out now.

Their UP4 is also top notch, a little cheaper, and should definitely get you the overclock you want.

The GA-Z77X-UP5 TH has an Intel NIC, Im wanting. Whats the main differences VS the UP4?

Would anyone, verify, that the mSATA is only 3gb/s or 6gb/s?

The less add-ons, the less wires, the better for me! But If the mSATA is on 3gb/s, why didnt Gigabyte put in a dip switch, to switch the mSATA 3gb/s or 6gb/s? This seem pretty fail to me. And 3gb/s cache drive only for the mSATA seem a waste of tech, why not think ahead a little?

It's not nonsense. For $250 the Sabertooth has a so-so at best VRM; compared to other boards (that are even cheaper) with a much more capable power delivery system.

Again, it's not a bad board. But you're paying a hefty premium for their marketing and thermal armor.

Aside from features the UP4 has a 6+2 phase digital PWM compared to the true 8-phase digital PWM on the UP5. Both boards use the same top-notch, high quality components in their VRMs anyways.

In your case either will be plenty, as you'd likely only reap the benefits of the slightly meatier VRM of the UP5 if you were overclocking on LN2.

It will be real waste to get UP5 and not push CPU hard. I wouldn't advice buying it... You can get 2-3 years out of any solid board.

mSATA is 3 Gbps, and the logic behind is simple. It is there for Intel Cache.

The main befits of SSDs are 4K reads and writes, and access times. Both nowhere near saturating SATA 3 Gbps speeds. Since you can't use more than 64 GB for cache, huge files that will benefit from 6 Gbps interface will rarely get transfered to cache.

In any case, these boards are for desktop PCs. It makes no sense to use mSATA drives anyway since they cost more. The only case that I would use mSATA is for benching without bench rack to get rid of extra cables.

Take a look at UD5H. It has exactly same features as UP5, but with inferior VRM (still on par with what Asus, ASrock, and MSI use), without thunderbolt, and WiFi. It has 2 NICs. Intel and Atheros, and 2 extra SATA ports.

Well, I still disagree about the mSATA being a cache drive only.


Anyone eles with feedback on the GA-Z77X-UD5H (link)


ATM $190 at the Egg (link)

I'm just going to put this here and op can choose to do what he wants.

Microcenter.com

I just bought a z77 extreme 6 for $99 usd... Now how does that sabertooth compare?

So if you live by a micro center and the sale is still going I think we have a clear winner.
