Z97 UD5H (not black edition) showing as available on Amazon US.

I'm looking hard at the UD5H black edition....I like the toned down heatsinks.

The Z97X-SOC Force, i honestly have no idea why they even made an SOC, there prob is a demand, the only two differences are power phases 4 versus 8, and NIC Intel i217v versus E2201

Yea some boards are for sale right now and its legit.

Sin is the Lord. I wonder if he'll make a list. I'm interested in the UD3H since the D3H seems to have gotten a nerf and it lost its 'X' from the Z87X name and from looking at the pics, it seems to have 4 phases now instead of 8 of the Z87X-D3H.

Thanks for the information Sin0822!

I'm not sure if I should go with the Z97X-Gaming G1 WIFI-BK or the Z97X-Gaming GT...

If I'm not mistaken, the GT as less SATA connector (8 vs 10), a different audio chip (ALC1150 vs Sound Core 3D), a single NIC (Killer E2201 vs Killer E2201+Intel), different video output (DVI-D + D-SUB vs DVI-I), a different heat sink (no water block vs water block). There is also no WiFi+Bluetooth 4.0 on the GT.

Is the Digital CPU Power Design the same between the two boards? The only thing that would make me hesitant towards the GT is the Killer E2201 NIC instead of the Intel one...


Edit: I finally pre-ordered the GT since I do not plan to use the included water block, WiFi+Bluetooth nor the Sound Core 3D since I already have a ZxR.

These look enticing. May get me to switch from ASUS. I'm liking the SOC and the G1 Black.

Maybe to add some swag to the 4 phase VRM design that is also used on the Gaming 5 mini and micro mother boards? I'm looking forward to detailed VRM analysis of this 4 phase design with over clocked loads with thermal imagery... smile.gif

Also it may be that with new Intel CPUs coming out soon the FiVR VRM design has been improved and even less mother board VRM inputs is needed.
