Please help me decide X58A-UD3R or X58A-UD5

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I cannot decide between these two boards. I would go with the X58A-UD3R, but someone on Youtube mentioned that this board has a bunch of problems???

I have to decide between one of these two Gigabyte boards, no other boards are an option. Is the X58A-UD5 worth the extra cash? Basicly I don't want to buy the X58A-UD3R and find out that it has bugs/problems.

Sorry if this sounds stupid.

Other than better chipset and component cooling, the different audio controller and the rear I/O panel headers the UD5 has...

Advanced 12+2+2 power phase design with VRD 11.1 support
Onboard Debug LED display simplifies motherboard troubleshooting
2 Gigabit Ethernet LAN with Teaming functionality
Power/reset/Clr CMOS onboard button for easily operation on the workbench
3-way Xfire/SLI and the UD3R has software-based 3-way Xfire/SLI.



Personally I dont think its worth the extra $80 dollars. Dont wory about that youtube video, alot of people have that board with no problems.
