    why do you post this thread...
    ..and even ask what people think....
    ...when you do not like the opinions you may receive?

    oxymoron?

    Some more info and pics for you here Judge-Dredd
    http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/anyo...58a-ud9-38992/

    There is also a link to some overclock sessions at XS Forums in the thread, breaking world records.

    UD7 is a STRONG board, why did you think it is a dud? I just started playing with one, so no dry ice sessions yet, but on water I have gotten 246 Bclk (235 bootable) and 5Ghz booting from the BIOS.

    Just wondered why you were not impressed?

    no one thinks it's a dud but what's so special about it I still do not know. I am no over-clocker so that is no point for me.

    Anything beside this?

    It is geared for overclocking, both the UD7 and UD9, so really no would be the answer for the average stock user.

    I was asking Judge-Dredd though since he thought it was a dude, wondered why he felt that way is all.

    Hi there,

    Is there no old PCI slot in the board ?
    I have read that it will be stay on the market for a long time because of large number of pci cards on the market.
    But now it seems to be not true anymore.

    Bad news for me. DAW machines has plenty of pci cards still todays bought for stock bucks..

    Nope, no PCI on this board.

    PCI will stay around for a while, just this board/model has an intended purpose which is massive 3/4 way GFX overclocks so there is no room for PCI.

    If you need PCI and are looking for one of the new X58 Gigabyte boards, UD7 is a great board
