I recommend the SLI-DR. I havn't heard of any memory issues with it. There are specific BIOS's depending on what kind of memory your using, so it's always good to do your research about what BIOS to use with what memory. I 100% believe the SLI-DR is the best DFI board out (sub 300 dollars of course, lol)
Thats not entirely true. they also change some pathways so the whole memory interface works better.
You can run 2 Gigs of ram and still get a good overclock. (all 4 slots)
Plus you can now run most types of ram with no conflicts.

But as Krunk says - The DR is a great mobo from what I hear.

One comes in a red box and one comes in a blue box.

I really don't know other then the non-UT is the newer of the two in terms of release. Hopefully my very informative post may get this post a little attention and you can get a good answer.

I know there's more to it than that, I was just pointing out the two common ones. Like I said, I knwo it's a badass board, but not one that really should be taken into account for building a system. It would be like me saying I want SLi 7800GTX 512's, it aint gonna happen 'cause you can't find 'em.
