All watercooling is done by a piece of tubing? thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

Not that there is a benefit from it at all. It's more for a marketing, and people who must watercool...

However, I completely miss the point of heatsink fans. Does VRM get much hotter or something due to higher voltages it must deliver to the Haswell VRM?

I have a question about both boards, since it seems no one has an answer to such a simple thing. Are there any lights on these boards besides the post display? If so what color are they? What color is the post display? Does it display temperature after boot? These are things i think should be printed on the box, or at least have a picture of them glowing or something.

Can anyone see any difference between the UD3H and UD4H? I looked at the specs on Gigabyte's page and there were no visible differences. I even saved the text and diff'ed them; the only differences were trivial (spacing or punctuation, etc).

i dont think t he ud3 has buttons on the mobo

UD4H has phase doubling (16 vs 8), and it's red... I'd say current $5 difference is justified biggrin.gif. I'd say regular price for UD4H is $200 though.

The CPU fan headers bellow the socket kill the wire management. on the GA-Z87X-UD4H, can you re-purpose the system fan headers to act like CPU headers?
post #17 of 40
That's what I thought too before, but that's one of the best placements to connect an air cooler imo. Of course, you can re-purpose them.

Yea that is how most of the VRM watercoolers are, they all are made by the same company and use this method I would think, that is why they don't have removable barbs, it will still do something but not much. With the fan blowing(and its basically silent, you can't hear the difference with it connected or not) the VRM heatsink is cold to the touch. FIVR's higher input voltage actually helps remove stress from the motherboard VRM, it is easier to convert 12v to 1.8v+ than to 1.0v so these VRMs aren't being stress much more, maybe even less. It really is just marketing as the heatsink doesn't get hot, i mean you are dealing with 16 IR3550s lol they are working at like 5% capacity lol.

So, between ud3h and ud4h the differences are only the power phase 8 vs.16 and the color. Or there is more?
