I'm using the GD55 and can't complain. No BSODs or instability so far, though I haven't bothered OCing my 2600k yet.

According to anandtech, the p8p67 Pro is the way to go when you are deciding against the UD4 because mainly of the better feature set. Otherwise both OC the same and pretty much hang close to each other in benchies. Take note on the extreme4 as well, it's a solid board, just less "refined" than the ASUS

After playing with both boards, I can only come to one conclusion – if it were my money, I would take the ASUS P8P67 Pro over the Gigabyte P67A-UD4. With the ASUS board, you are getting a detailed UEFI, an awesome auto-overclocking tool, better energy saving features, a USB 3.0 bracket , more SATA 6 Gb/s ports, Intel gigabit Ethernet, and in my case, scope for a better overclock. The Gigabyte board is essentially expensive for what is on offer, in terms of usability, features, and extras.

However, the second question is: ‘what about the comparison to the ASRock P67 Extreme4’? The ASRock board has power/reset buttons on the board, a Debug LED, that USB 3.0 bracket which will hold an SSD (worth in my option about $15), and is almost $40 cheaper. The ASUS board is the slightly better performing, overclocking is easier on the ASUS, the ASUS has a longer warranty, the UEFI is slightly better on the ASUS, the ASUS uses Intel Ethernet rather than Realtek, but the ASRock will take socket 775 coolers. It is up to you to judge, but in my opinion, I would take the Extreme4, pocket the $40 difference, and invest it in something else for a PC build.

go with the asrock extreme4 or biostar tp67fxe for $150, you can't beat them for the price

Gigabyte UD4, top notch board for it's price. And it's the sexiest amongst all others!! (That counts a lot for me)
