That is the tuniq 120 extreme isnt it? It looks like a safety hazard.

same i had both ud7 and ud5 boxed infront of me and when you read whats what apart from the fire wire 2 esata's on the mobo instead on a pci ext and odd button more it isnt worth the extra money over the ud5 IMO but both are IMO absolutely superb mobo's
MY ud5 has turned out to be a right little monster

Killer mobo indeed.Maybe i buy after few years when i7 and DDR3 rams becomes affordable.
The board i have in my rig right now was among the best, king of LGA 775s and i waited years to buy it, in the end i bought it just for 150$ so why not with this one.

I have this board and so far its pretty good, no issues here at the moment. Seems to be a good overclocker as well. Gigabyte has again impressed me with another high quality product.

Yes though it's actually a bit smaller than using a push pull cooler, as the fan is internal. It just looks more extreme I think due to the colour and the shape of the fins.

Yep I'm sure you'll get good value out of the UD5, It's pretty much the same choice as the Asus Deluxe boards v Premium, for the majority, including mayself many times it's a sound option.

Yes Gigabyte boards have come on well and are very solid.

That power button looks super cute. If I had enough money I would definitely snag this up for my i7 build.

Yeah I wish they would change the onboard reset button as well, instead its a stupid generic looking blue one. No big deal anyway.
