but in real world scenario/ gameplay it won't make much of a difference. 5% maybe.

The power delivery that I mentioned with the gigabyte motherboards are these:

UD3H has a 8 phase power design (8+2)
UD4H has a 16 phase power design (12+2+2)
Basically it means smoother power delivery to the CPU.
The UD4H also has a few more SATA ports and a better heatsink on the VRM's (voltage regulator modules)

The Maximus VI Hero has a 10 8 phase power design.
Somebody else might be able to tell you more about what it actually does.
I guess it just helps with proper power distribution and when overclocking
and in that case, I would say more is better.

Thanks! I just found out my local store has stopped supplying Gigabyte motherboards. Dang! But they sell a wide range of Asrock motherboards. Are they recommended? the staff in the my local store advised me to get a Z87-Fatal1ty Killer.

Wrong.

Haswell architecture doesn't have separate phases for different components besides memory. All phases supply power to CPU's VRIM which then distributes power as needed to vcore, IMC, iGPU, and so on.
So, UD3H has 8 phases going to the CPU.
UD4H has 16 phases doubled from 8.
Hero has 8 phases similar to UD3H, but with better inductors.

For regular folk overclock will be exactly the same since they all use overkill VRM for LGA1150.

Thanks for clearing up! But unfortunenately im going for AMD Chips right now. But i want to thank you guys for providing me information about the motherboards! +REP to all of u
