Quick question on some Z87 Gigabyte motherboards.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi! I have some questions that I cant seem to find straight answers to so hopefully you can help!
1. What is the difference between a Gigabyte UD3H and a UD4H? I have been reading about them a lot and have only found the difference to be "phase doubling"
2. Since I'm on the topic of phase doubling... What in the world is phase doubling?
3. Which Z87 board would you recommend (under $200) for a modest overclocker, modest gamer, Folder, and serious experimenter (I want to, or will want to at some point, try using and utilizing all the bells and wistles my board comes with)? Am I right to have these two as my finalists?

Proposed build for $1500 to be used for said gaming and experimenting is the one in my sig, I already bought the ssd, RAT, speakers, mousepad and case.

Any help is appreciated, Thanks!

Doublers are basically signal splitters which lets boards have more FETs, inductors and etc. per phase than PWM controllers has.

3. UD3H, UD4H, GD65.
