    Is there something wrong with it?

    This is a computer enthusiast site right?

    Love how they are moving away from the baby blue colors.

    Meh. He just wants it in the news section so they can troll us by locking the thread "move the discussion to the news post", then telling us "this isn't a discussion thread". TROLOLOL

    I agree man, this board is sexy. Now I'm torn between this, well UD5 anyway, and the Sabretooth. I'm still leaning towards Sabretooth though.

    thats a massive southbridge heatsink!
    im liking the black! could contrast well in a white case

    i remember seeing a sapphire all white motherboard i thought the colour scheme was pretty novel

    Sexy yes, but I liked the baby blue that Gigabyte had. Seems that all the new motherboards have black on them as if black makes them better.

    No we all now red makes them faster and blue makes the cooler :)

    Is the UD7 going to be E-ATX?

    I'm just hoping that they fix the ridiculous voltage settings and add half steppings to the multiplier. Then it would be serious competition with the Sabretooth for me.

    Yes, I think the UD7 is E-ATX. I think the UD5 will be the ATX board and look the same.

    That's how it worked for the 890FXA boards anyway.

    from what i can see its about 2cm wider, or almost 1 inch, but should fit in all cases that support atx

    Now if we could just get prices for all of these boards, it would make my decision a lot easier.

    Now this looks better then the Asus omg over the top expensive boards and i would wager its also cheaper.

    if bulldozer is awesome for gaming and i do switch to one, This will be the board for me.

    here in DK the 890FX ud7 is around 280$ directly converted

    so im guessing it will be around 300$ bc of SLI and new tech
