Thanks, I didn't catch that since I rarely look at people signatures.

I think I need one last thing before I make my decision. Can anyone note the relevant benefits that the UD5 provides over the UD4?

Yeah I've got the UD4-B3 Awesome looking board. But again nothing against the Asus board I just went with the Gigabyte based on looks. They both preformed awesome when I had both....

Here is what I've gotten...

UD5 offers...

3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 slots
4 USB 3.0 Onboard/Rear Ports
4 USB 2.0 Onboard/Rear Ports
20 phase design

UD4 offers...

2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 slots
2 USB 3.0 Onboard/Rear Ports
6/8 USB 2.0 Onboard/Rear Ports
14 phase design

Other than that they are basically identical from what I can tell... Correct me if I'm wrong, because if that is the case then the UD4 is definitely a better value.

I'm an idiot......this whole time I thought you were comparing the Asus P67 board to the Gigabyte UD4.....I didn't see that it was the UD4 vs the UD5.....sorry about that :-( I must be getting old I'm starting to see things that aren't their...

PS. Also yes the UD5 gives you 20 phase as opposed to 14 phase I personal would not spend the extra $50 or so just to get 20 phase :-)

Haha I updated the thread title. I was wanting to compare the asus and the gigabyte's but after alot of research and looking at benchmarks I'm just going to pick the better looking boards. But IDK if I should get the UD4 or UD5. They both have nearly the same features +/- a PCI Express 2.0 slot and different number of USB 2.0/3.0's... But I feel like I'm missing something because IDK how that justifies a $70 price difference.

I absolutely HATE my UD4 with a raging passion. the bios is so terrible (most likely a gigabyte thing). But if you want efficiency clock/clock you cant beat it.

It's all about style. The features are pretty much identical for boards in that price range between the ud4 and UD5. Just take a look at the minor features and ask yourself if you need it.

Also, if youre not going xfire save some money and get the UD3P. same matte black but without the xfire.

UD5 upgrades from UD4:
- 1 more internal USB3.0 header
- 2 more USB3.0 ports on the back
- 1 internal 1394a header
- 2 1394 ports on the back
- Onboard power/reset button
- 8 more power phases
- PCIE x4 slot (useful for PCIE x4 SSD drives)
- heatsinks are attached to mobo with screws instead of push pins
- trendy but admittedly useless "NF200" heatsink

You really can't go wrong with either the UD4 and UD5. The UD4 will be a very solid board if you're on a budget.

If you have a P67A-UD4-B2, you need to go get the B3. Apparently Gigabyte has fixed the bios and now it's a VERY solid board with near perfect LLC and no more boot loop issues. Read the last few pages of this forum to see what I mean.

I will give you that. The Asus bios is much more user friendly and easier to use...
