    It only has ATX_12V_1X4 connector. For boards that has ATX_12V_2X4 connector GIGABYTE recommends a PSU that has 8pins for Extreme Edition CPU (130W).
    The Q660 is 105W, that's about all I know.

    Most LGA775 baords that are selling now are DDR3 boards.

    Also one more question about the ICH voltage, when overclocking, should auto be used or should I set it manually? thanks

    As already mentioned, this may not be a great choice for overclocking. It will work to an extent though, but just may not be as good as what you are used to.

    It also will not have all the BIOS options you had with the other board. If you need me to show you what options it does have let me know.

    ICH should be fine in auto most of the time

    The "P" designation also steps up to a second PCIE x16 slot from the "R". They both have 3 pcie x1 slots whereas the "L" has only 2.

    The "P" and the "R" also have a heat pipe whereas the "L" does not.

    If you want to add in a USB3 card, the extra pcie slot would be useful even if you don't want to crossfire.

    The "P" and "R" are almost impossible to find new and have been selling for $100-$150 on ebay lately. I am still trying to figure out if they will work with my Patriot Performance memory. (8500).

    All of that is independent of the model names, and only applies per series to the models you are looking at.

    I mean P does not always mean the items you mention, same as R, ect, just trying to clarify that the model name has nothing to do with the board PCIE/PCI layout or heatpipe design.

    Agreed, across model lines Gigabyte is inconsistent among these items. I have focused alot last several weeks on the EP-45 ud3p ud3r and udsL models and the differences I describe above are true of these three at least which is what the OP was asking about :)

    On P55a I am disappointed that the 3 pcie x1 doesn't show up until the ud4p at the higher price point.

    Default Noooooo!

    bad thing happeend to my ud3r. I finished stripping the parts off the motherboard except the cpu. I was standing near my desk at the time and proceeded to take off the cpu from the socket, the bugger would not come off. I made sure the latch was unfastened and the metal cover was off the chip, but no go. So I pulled very hard and the cpu came out, but I fumbled the motherboard and it hit the corner of my desk. Now some pins are broke/bent and I am SOL

    Was so close to getting the board to gigabyte for rma :(

    now I do not need a 2-month replacement board, i now need a excellent permanent board :P

    looking for some recommendations for great motherboards, please help a guy out

    here is what I need in a motherboard :

    1 - lots of sata ports for my devices
    2 - 1 PCIe x16 slot, but if there is 2 I might be interested in getting another video card
    3 - longterm overclocking stability
    4 - quality parts on the board
    5 - at least 1 or 2 PCI slots on the board if able
    6 - must support my current hardware (in my signature minus the UD3R)
    7 -motherboard needs to be able to run all 4x2GB memory without problem (pending I set the memory up correctly)
    8 - Great/moderate overclocking on the board
    9 - must be a reputable online store (no auction sites), or a brick and mortar store.

    I know this is a lot to ask for, but damn the UD3r was a great board, even when it never worked well, it was great.


    thanks all
    processor : i5-2500k (stock)

    That's very interesting. What held the CPU?
