    Sorry if it's already been addressed here but why only dual channel ram? is this just the new replacement for 1156?

    The UD5 does at least have 4 USB3 ports at the rear though. Now, if only they'd sort out that damned header..

    Finally looks like the new mobos are phasing out Legacy ports like IDE and floppy! WHOOT!
    IMO they shouldnt belong on mobos anymore, I cant even remember the last time I saw a floppy let alone used one lol.

    Have you noticed that our motherboards have actually got little pictures of skulls on them? (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JEle_DLDg9Y)

    Looks a lot like Gigabyte has taken inspiration from MSI's rebooted colour scheme on its motherboards, The Gun-metal and Blue is a much more menacing colour than its previous light blue schemes.

    Yeh I have never bought a gigabyte board because I didn't think it would look right with a black case, psu and gfx card!

    I think the boards look good although a bit cheap.

    Are the boards going to be a competitive price do we think or are they gonna be mega expensive?
