    They added more under the SB Heatsink, that's why it is getting larger.

    Here's a rundown on the Naming scheme:

    * 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 (Now UD6, UD7, or UD9)

    UD6 is what used to be DQ6 models, everything included.

    UD7 has been used in place of UD6/Extreme for the X58 lineup

    UD9 is the mother load, this board is a Non standard size (EATX) and can run 4 way Crossfire/SLI @ x16
