Thread Starter 
I'm having a hard time deciding on a motherboard for my new build. I like both Asus and Gigabyte and I'm sure either would do the job very well. Going to pair it with either a FX-6300, 8320 or 8350 that I'll decide on later.
It will be used for gaming, photoshop and maybe some light video editing and a everyday rig. I'll be dropping it into the rig below and on the water loops listed.

I have read through a lot of threads here about these board and still finding it hard to decide.

Thanks

UD5... BUT!

Only if it is revision 1.1. 1.0 has no LLC, and 3.0 is Giga's first attempt at UEFI for AMD, and they sorta didn't do a great job. If you're buying it in person, the label should have the revision number on it.

If you can't get a Rev 1.1 or can't find out the revision number, then get the Sabertooth.
