What sort of card then would fit into that first PCI-E x1 slot? I have two PCI-E x1 cards (a Killer NIC 2100, and a Creative X-FI Titanium sound card) along with two 6850 cards in crossfire that I want to put in there. Is that sort of configuration going to be possible on either the UD5 or UD7? If not, that would be too bad, since I've always liked Gigabyte boards and am chomping at the bit to get one of these. I know I could give up one or both of those cards, but I don't want to have to sacrifice them.

Thanks, Sin. And again, great review.

Just ordered the UD5. I chose it mainly because of the heat sinks after reading this thread (guess the heat sinks are the same), but I don't need all that UD7 slots.

My main problem now, (OOT) is RAM. I heard SB supports up to 1333 Mhz and 1.5v. So I have ordered a G.Skill Ripjaws 8Gb 1333 1.5v. What do you reckon?

What I want to know is whether the UD3H with onboard video overclocks worse than the UD3 and UD4 because the onboard video core is enabled in Sandy Bridge.

Why do I want the UD3H you may ask? Because I am thinking on holding off buying a 6970/6990 until the release of Crysis 2 by which time it will be cheaper!

Or should I just grab a super cheap PCI GPU and go for the UD4?
The H67 boards don't allow you to overclock at all. If you want to overclock, you will have to go with a P67 board and give up the on board video.

From what I have seen that is incorrect. The GA-H67A-UD3H is capable of overclocking, tho not to the degree of any of the P67 boards. As to the onboard video, I read somewhere a couple of days ago, it is about the equiv to an ATI 4850.


Personally I will be going with more than likely the GA-P67A-UD5 with a GTX 570.

Sin has GB got back to you with the question on max RAM yet? Also might you be able to clarify, I have not been able to determine, if Asus's motherboard architecture is anywhere near the same as GB with regards to the SATA3 (Intel) accesses the P67 chipset directly or if it is via the PCI Express Bus like the Marvel on the GB boards.

I am definitely leaning towards GB atm, both vendors have some features the other doesn't have which make both attractive. Is there an ETA for the UEFI?

Hi Sin0822,

Thank you for the great and indepth review, really appreciate the time and effort you put in.

I think I'm going to go with the Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD5, but going see how reviews and prices pan out over the next couple of weeks.

James

sorry if this has been asked, but it doesn't seem that the top PCI slot can be used for anything, unless you watercool the chipset...so OP is this true for many us w/ PCI sound cards?

I checked out the PCIe sound card issue regarding fitment in the top x1 slot (Asus Xonar Essence STX) on the UD7 today at NCIX, there is no way it will fit in the top slot. Forget it. Going to look at an Asus P8P67 Deluxe or a Sabertooth. Disapointing. No idea why whey would do that unless they thought about this board for benchers and forgot about gamers/audiophiles.
