Please let us know, I'm really debating between the CH4 and the UD5, and now with the CH4 problems also the UD5 has Voltage limits of 1.55v in the Bios

I need a Mobo, I have everything for my new system but the Mobo and Ram.

Wow, unbelievable. I always thought the ASUS have great quality check. Its what's its known for. I sure hope you enjoy this new one, its sure a bit expensive for my taste.

Edit: @ ChrisB17- Any chance of making a guide for the 890 boards like you did for the 790? I would like you know your thoughts on the this board? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16813131631R

Yes I will be "updating" that guide when I get some reviews and read up on each board.

And yea I was very disappointed at the Crosshair. I love asus but damn that was a quality nightmare. I seen a screw missing and the ram slot was damaged and just said "***"

That worries me. Admittedly, I've never owned an Asus board, but I usually equate them with top of the line. I don't like what I'm hearing.

Also, I was going to ask about the 800 series breakdown like you did with the 700 series. Looks like someone beat me to it

I've had a great quality experience with the 890FXA-UD5!

No issues at all except... I seem to have ordered an x4 965 to replace my x3 720.

It should be on my front porch when I get home!!!

I don't know how it happened... I blame the upgrade knomes!!!

Hey, at least they didn't order me an x6 1090T!!!

I think the x4 is better for gaming anyway.

BTW I have my OCZ AMD BE DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) running at rated clocks "8-8-8-24" and voltage "1.65V" and happy as a clam. I do wish NewEgg hadn't dropped the price right after I bought it! Oh-well.

Can't wait to drop-in the new proc tonight!!!

Is it just me or does it look like the UD7 NB cooler w/water-block could be used on the UD5? The assembly fitment looks identical. Any thoughts?

Woah, I didn't know that the two clubs have been merged.

Yay my board comes tomorrow! I am wondering how cool the NB runs on the board.

Negative, well sort of. Yes, it can be done, but then you lose and room behind the PCIe x1 slot at the top of the board. Look at the layout and remember the UD7 is an extended ATX board. The top PCIe x16 slots line up with each other.

Now, that isn't a problem if you're not using a PCIe x1 card that is long, but for me it's a heahache.

But to answer your question, it should have no problems being done.

...now, should I get a UD7 for a "Foldamus Maximus" project...
