As for why why Maximus V
(4 true power phases) can overclock better than UD5H? I'm not so sure. Perhaps it's the MOSFETs Maximus family uses that can handle 60A.
In the end, I chose UD5H over Gene because it's a full ATX board with more expansions, and it's a bit cheaper (I used a $50 BB gift card and paid $153 after tax) . Also, I only overclock my 3570k to 4.5gHz given the Noctua D14's capabilities. If I had the money to afford Corsair H100 or equivalent, I would've considered Gigabyte UP5-TH or even Maximus V Etreme.
