New Build in the Near future

I am weary of Asus as I have had a bad past with them but I am posting all the 890FX boards out or coming out soon

I want a board that is a strong over-clocker, I will probably not be running 2 video cards but think about it later in the future- layout is a must. I intend on running 8 Gigs to Max amt of ram in the board along with a sound card and possibly a PCI E SSD or Raid card. 5870/5850 2GB is what I intend on running in the machine for video.

Unless you absolutely must have a motherboard now, I would wait for the Crosshair IV Extreme. Don't have a release date yet, but I imagine it should be out in the next month or two. Unless Asus is completely crazy.

However, the CH IV Formula or the Gigabyte UD7 would be my choice. Biostar has a terrible layout, the MSI doesn't OC as well as the others, the ASRock is a solid board, but I would spend the extra money for the extra features of the CH IV or the UD7.

This. CH IV Formula or UD7. I currently have the CHIV, and I've got a ton of experience with Gigabyte boards in general. I don't think you could make a bad choice b/t the 2.

I've got the MSI, first one of theirs I've bought in years, and it's a good board. But, I don't O/C.

I still dont like the configurations of the slots. Instead of stuffing 2 slots right desides eachother, make the 1st slot PCI E 16x then a space where a slot would go, then the second PCI E 16x slot then another space then the rest of the slots with the bottom being PCI or PCI E 8x capable

Im kinda in the same boats.

Cant get the UD7 cause I dont own and E-ATX case
The crosshair 4 is kinda not an option cause most good air coolers will block 2 mem slots and keep me from getting some decent mem.
The msi reviews got me second guessing it
So I feel like my only option is the UD5.
Why couldnt Asus make it so the mem can run dual channel in the 2 farthest slots from the cpu.
And do mem makers feel the need to screw all of us by putting tall heatspreaders on all the good ram.
AARRRGGG!!!!

I had an issue with the stock AMD hsf, haven't installed one in forever. So I installed my Cooler Master Gemini II S. Which I then had to UN install because I couldn't get the Gskill Ripjaws installed with it in place. It fits under there, but impossible to install or remove with the CM in place.

Gigabyte + AMD has always been "meh" for me. I have no complaints with my Crosshair IV. The biggest surprise with this board has been it's onboard sound. It simply blows away anything else I've ever used onboard. Clean sound, no hiccups, and best of all, It's actually loud if need be! No more sound card for me, I'm happy.

Can't afford the CH IV, the UD7 has nice options but the PCIex16_1 and _2 are too far apart and would probably require the long 100mm bridges so it all boils down to the UD5 for me.

Tough choices either way, good luck with that

I have a GB 890GPA-UD3H currently and thinking about upgrading to the UD7 due the chipset water cooling option. The UD3H's chipset gets really hot to the touch during normal ops with no OC to my 1055T:eek::shadedshu The UD7 is also a little expensive than the CH IV Formula:wtf:

Btw, does anybody know if the UD7 will fit in a Corsair 800D? I'd buy this except I'm not sure if it'd fit.

UD 7 Requires a XL-ATX or EATX Case, do a search for those.

Well, that's the thing. XL ATX just means it's 8 PCI slots instead of 7, and not wider than the standard ATX right? The 800D has an extra vent space at the bottom of the PCI slots so I was wondering if it'll fit in there.

On the other hand, if the screw spacings are not the same as ATX then it won't screw on the mobo tray anyways. Anyone who has a UD7 would care to comment?
