Sandy Bridge: Giga UD5 or Asus Pro

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I keep hearing that the UD5 is so much better, but I am not sure why. There is a $60 difference.
Main question is will it overclock better or is it just extra stuff (HD sound, etc)?

Thanks

Overclock better? Not on air/water. Asus all the way. UEFI and Intel Gigabit lan ftw.

UD5 is overpriced.

Also the Asus boards have better cooling for their motherboard components. Gigabyte really lost this round.

I made a similar post in another thread.. ASUS for the additional features. All P67 boards looks like good launch OC candidates. I choose ASUS Deluxe for 16+2 phase, Intel GigE, MOBO power & reset buttons, QLED, LED diagnostic code, and Bluetooth 2.1.. I think ASUS got the SB launch right and has a product for everyone.
