Hi -- have a question about the Intel Controller on my Giga-Byte EP45-UD3R. Is it an ICH10 or ICH10R? Anyone know? TIA

Its an ICH10R :) R = RAID capabilities.


GIGABYTE - Product - Motherboard - Specification - GA-EP45-UD3R (rev. 1.0) (http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/Motherboard/Products_Spec.aspx?ClassValue=Motherboard&ProductID=2921&ProductName=GA-EP45-UD3R)

Yeap, R means RAID Capable in Gigabyte model names.

For others who may wonder what the rest is sometime in the future, here is some of the name scheme >>

P version boards have TPM Chips. Here is some more info on the name schemes for anyone who may look up this info later >>>

* GA: Gigabyte

* E: Energy saving technology
* P45: Chipset

* D: Ultra Durable 2 (low rds mosfet, ferrite core chokes, all solid capacitors)

* UD3 Ultra Durable 3 (2oz Copper in PCB, low rds mosfet, ferrite core chokes, all solid capacitors)

* L: Lite "lite" or entry level. For example, the DS3L has only 3-phase power or another example Only one PCIe x16

* R: RAID The R version(s) have RAID, & are "mainstream" level

* S3 Stands for Speed-Smart-Safe

* S4: Adds silent pipe cooling

* S5: Includes smart backup (Including all of S4's features)

* P: Includes TPM. The P version(s)are "pro" or high level, with more ports etc (P45 DS3R, DS4P, DS5, DQ6 have TPM support)

* Q: Gigabyte Flagship product with all features included

Yes in deed, in fact you can see in the specification, UD3 has SB ICH10, and UD3R has SB ICH10R-raid.
