very good review. So many information. Very useful for beginner and OC'er.
I like and respect such people like you, that could make some benches in real.

I have a question.
How do you know about PLL, VTT, Dram voltage and other components of motherboard ?
I guess Gigabyte Crew give you such information ?
Am i right ? Or you just Google it ?

OP, if you had the chance, which board would you go for, Gigabyte's UD5 or Asus' P8P67 Evo/Deluxe?

Have you had past experience with Asus boards?

I ordered an Evo(need to update sig), but you seem to prefer Gigabyte's alternatives.

Both Asus and GB are fine. The Evo is an NF200 board as well, but at a nicer price. Correct?

Great review man. I was on the fence about the UD7 vs the MIV4 and this review really helped out a lot. I am worried about getting a D1 chip over a D2, though. Is there any discernible difference without having to install and check with CPU-Z?

Also, can you link to some of that higher speed ram you were telling someone else to go with? I looked around on newegg and most of the high speed stuff is up in the C9-10 latencies.

Apparently all retail chips are D2. And no, the Evo does not use NF200.

I just didn't get a chance to use an Asus board up until now(shocking, right?).

Ah, okay. Don't even sweat. You'll love the Asus board. I would have gone Asus if this UD7 looked like ass lol.
post #57 of 710
I really wanted the Asus Maximus IV, but I can't buy it anywhere!

Should I wait for it or go with the UD7?

Stupid Asus $%#^!. I have my 2600K, my waterblock, my RAM, everything!

So it reverted back to F3 again. Got a failed OC and it flashed itself back to the backup with a checksum error. I'm going to listen to you and flash F4

Already CAS 8, we'll see how tight I can get 'em.
