Well, I could have explain myself better. I don't understand why the UD7 have only 4 slot while the UD5 have 8.

Someone goofed when they thought out the design?

No idea on that one MM. It should be the other way around.

My MA770-UD3 is still fine after about a month of overclocked folding with a Phenom 9950 and the VRMs hitting over 108 Celsius, plus a few months of folding with the same Phenom 9950 at stock. I'll make a post when it fries

Back on topic, it looks like you'll want a top exhaust on your case to make use of any of these motherboards. The hottest portion (VRM) runs along the top of the board, and a classic front-to-back airflow pattern with tower heat sink will either create a hot spot at the top of the case or heat up the DIMMs between the socket and the I/O plate. Then again, even the UD3 has enough VRM for an overclocked Bulldozer chip, so maybe it actually won't heat up that much with a chip based off Sandy Bridge?

Do these boards still have half their SATA ports broken?

**SPECULATION** running 4 sticks of RAM (4x2G, 4x4G) is going to be adequate for most hardcore overclockers, who this UD7 **generalizing** is marketed towards. High overclocks are usually harder to achieve the more RAM you add to the equation.

I expect the overclocking community is going to have lots of debugging requests/threads for guys with 8 sticks trying to stabilize their overclocks.

Do like the boards the way there set up. The UD5 looks very nice thinking of buy one when they come out.
When will HWC have a review on these
