Asus Maximus IV extreme vs UD7 - Page 2

post #11 of 14
I would say both are great (flagship P67) with one exception..Asus is notorious for abandoning support (bios ,drivers,etc) in favor of the new platform,proof ;

EDIT: with UD7 you get x16/x16 for SLI/CF ,Maximus iv x8/x8 or triple x8/x16/x16..not much of a difference for single monitor tho;

This is precisely why I went with gigabyte this time!!
And I got flamed on that hardforum and called a "kid" for telling the truth, even though I'm 39,
whatever, anyway,
Yeah anyone who remembers the Asus P5WDH remembers how limited it was with FSB overclocking because there were no RAM subtimings in the BIOS!! You could change it in windows (TRFC TRFC TRFC!!) and use setFSB, but even though the P5B Deluxe had subtimings, the P5WDH did NOT! And we kept asking Asus and they did NOTHING. Nothing.
So we had a board that was fast for its time, but only faster than other boards because it ran the memory timings too tight, and you couldn't loosen them in the BIOS...TRFC/TRD values were too low....

In the meantime, Asus made newer boards with ram subtimings...

Now look at gigabyte....we ask them to make more LLC options and sure enough they do...yeah its sorta buggy at the moment, but at least they did...
