Is the only difference between these boards the looks and connectivity with UD5H having 10x SATA vs 8x, Dual ethernet, additional dvi and firewire(and 40€ more price)?
If so i'd rather go with the UD4H since imo it looks better and i have no real need for the extra connectivity.

or is there something i'm missing?

Ended up getting the UD5H for a mere 170€ through a friend so i'm happy tongue.gif can't wait to finally upgrade this. Now the wait begins for AMD's 9000 series.

The UD5H should also have much better fan control, I have a UD4H but I can't look at it now and tell you if it has the EC on board like the UD5H does, i think it might not.

UD4H seems to have less fan headers and fan 2 & 3 are linked (http://www.eteknix.com/gigabyte-z87x-ud4h-z87-motherboard-review/3/)

For UD5H it seems 4th and 5th fans are linked

COMPARE:
http://www.gigabyte.com/products/comparison/list.aspx?ck=2&pids=4488,4483

UD5H also has a displayport instead of D-sub , two gigabit LAN , 5 x system fan headers instead of 4


Personally I think the Z87-OC is a great value this time around @$200 (that's about what MSi is charging for Z87-GD65 Gaming , AsRock Z87 Extreme6, slightly cheaper than ASUS Z87-PRO & MSI Z87 MPOWER) ; the OC Force is expensive at $400 though.

Thanks for the info thumb.gif also has a extra fan connector which is always a good thing

Yeah the OC is definitely great value and i probably would've gone with it if i had to pay full price for this one.

Also can get to gigabytes own product pages through google now

The thing is though atm you can buy a Haswell and get the UD4H for only $145 at Microcenter. At that price point I'm so tempted to not wait to see the other ASRock or Asus ROG offerings....

I like the Sniper M5 but don't like the green and the mATX form factor. Can't justify the cost of going to the Sniper 5 since I'm never gonna go above SLI for sure. Hopefully more announcements on Monday or I will probably cave and drive out Microcenter. smile.gif

Got my UD4H today. Realized I only need 1 or 2 fan headers anyway.

Got any idea why Speedfan is reading the core temps wrong? It's giving me very different temps from Realtemp. It's always approximately 15C lower than what Realtemp reads. It's making it a bit hard to create a custom fan curve.

I'm using an SSD installed from my old Z68 rig so my drivers are all out of whack. I had to borrow a friends ODD to install the USB 3.0 drivers to get my mouse and kb to work. I normally use a flash drive who-let-rip-smiley.png

yea i think this is the reason they have the UD3H, UD4H, UD5H and soon the next up, so that users can get exactly what they want. IMO its a good thing. I have UD3H-OC FOrce and i will do more reviews. I have the Sniper 5 review almost done as well, anyone want to see what the heatsink on the SNiper 5 looks like taken apart?
