    Default GA-P55-UD3 - Best MB for the i5/i7?

    Any reviews on this motherboard. Would like to buy another gigabyte with a new i7/i5 processor. Any comments on this MB? Price seems affordable enough.

    What do you need it for? I've used it for a Core i5 750 review, I'm still using it for RAM performance scaling review and I think it's fine board. It's definitely enough if you don't plan to hit spees >4GHz, int that case other boards might be better. The 6 phase PWM hetsinsk get very hot at 4+GHz, so I would get something witha bigger heatpipe cooler & more phases for 4+Ghz 24/7 overclock.

    If you don't overclock heavily and you don't need features lieke eSata that only more expensive boards provide then I can definitely recommend the board. After 2 weeks of heavy testing I have not encoutered any problems, it's definitely very stable in my setup.

    Do you still need some reviews? If so I can find you a few links likely.

    Nickel020, why did you not link your review? It would be fine

    How does this compare to the P55M-UD2?

    You do mean P55M0UD2 right?

    Here is a comparison of UD3R and UD2, the only difference in the UD3 and UD3R is RAID Capability in the Intel chipset >>
    Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!

    Here is Gigabyte's page for both >>
    GIGABYTE - Product - Motherboard - Overview - GA-P55-UD3 (rev. 1.0)

    GIGABYTE - Product - Motherboard - Overview - GA-P55M-UD2 (rev. 1.0)

    Depends on your needs which would be better really, check out the specifications of each at Gigabyte's site as it looks like the Newegg specs are a bit off

    Also, I posted here for P45 what some of the naming scheme means, this still applies in P55 >>
