Not bad, but for ~$10 more the UD3 is a better board.

And the ram is slower and the wrong color, and IMHO has ugly giant heatsinks.

Dangit.. That was a nice board. I just today a few hours ago.. But it won't ship till tomorrow being sunday.. Is there any way to stop that order and use the money for that other motherboard?

120 bucks for that board and its free shipping. Could have saved me 25 bucks towards better ram.. mad.gif

Scratch those last 2. I just compared motherboards and actually the one I got is just as good if not better. Still happy with the purchase.. Should arrive Tuesday 3/19 or Wednesday 3/20.
And another good thing is I recently got a new camera so I'll have some time to take some glamour shots before the RAM shows up. Then glamour shots of it inside my case!

Can't wait!

Wow so the RAM I was going to buy apparently wanted to SELL OUT the day before I bought it. Typical. Ram has gotten so dang expensive lately I've noticed!

Had to settle with these speeds but. It's still a huge jump from what I have now. I would have bought faster ram but I just didn't have the money. These will at least serve my color scheme? Thats what counts right?
