I'd take the X58D-E for the better Marvell SATA controller. I also like Asus boards to be honest, I just tried a Gigabyte and I am glad to be back on Asus...I think the UD3 also has the same Marvell controller. Veddy speedy match for faster drives, I don't think the Gene or the Sabertooth have it, but I'm not sure offhand.

UD3R for the clocks, ASUS for the awesome all around. I would snag the Gene just cause I don't mind mATX if it means speed!
