GA-B75M-D3H (rev. 1.0) GA-B75M-D3H (rev. 1.1) when i looked the specs , everything is same in both motherboard except the cpu power supply header ... rev 1.0 has 4 pin header and rev 1.1 has 8 pin header and other things are mostly same if almost everything in specs are same , then what does it mean by revision ? these are the pictures of both versions http://www.gigabyte.in/fileupload/product/2/4150/5670_b... http://www.gigabyte.in/fileupload/product/2/4315/6504_b...

That's why it's not a different model, but only a different revision. Best solution MC_K7 a b V Motherboard August 20, 2013 9:02:07 AM Share Basically the same board, but could be small differences or improvement, like not the same provider for certain components like capacitors and such, etc... Or new types of connectors as you already observed yourself.

In your case, 8 pin cpu, the memory is a bit closer and the pci-e slot has a different lock from what I can see. All the boards functions should be the same(you may be able to push a cpu farther with the extra power from the 8-pin cpu power, but with the rather basic power system, It may not be any better.). Some boards have revisions with newer PCI-E switches(to support 3.0 on boards that only supported 2.0 at release.) for SLI/Xfire. hari2202 August 20, 2013 10:02:28 AM nukemaster said:Revisions are just slight changes to a board.
