Asus or Gigabyte and between the GA-990FXA-UD3/5/7 vs M5A99FX Pro R2.0/Sabbertooth/Crosshair?
I currently have the Giga UD3 board and its pretty good. Can oc 4.5 to 4.85Ghz fairly easily and stable..want to go to 5.. but i'm finding a lot of fluctuations with the voltages and the clock speeds.. i've tried different LLC settings and have all the bios controls like c&q, ce1, c6, turbo, etc... all off. auto and manual voltages.. but seems to some throttling happening when under load.. and voltages change a lot.. other then that.. it's all good but I know the Digi+ power controls and the vrm's are supposedly better on Asus so that is why I'm considering the switch..
I would have to say there is a slight edge for Crosshair V but the Gigabyte 990FX UD-7 is in the same class and if you are so wasteful and extravagant to want to run a quad Crossfire gpu setup then it is the winner.
Technology will NOT liberate the world. Who technology serves is a class question. In the hands of the capitalist class, it will serve the exploiters. In the hands of the working class it will serve humanity.
