What are the differences between a Gigabyte GA-Z87X-D3H ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
(http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gigabyte-motherboard-gaz87...) and a Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD3H ATX LGA1150 Motherboard (http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gigabyte-motherboard-gaz87...)

The only differences I see are price and the second one accepts more types of RAM.

Are there any other differences?

The UD3H has 2 more SATA III 6Gb/s ports using a Marvell controller in addition to the standard 6 Intel SATA III ports. It also lists more supported RAM speeds, but usually each will support more RAM speeds even if not listed. Sound quality should also be a little better on the UD3H.

Both are good boards with a decent amount of upgrade flexibility. You should also consider an Asus Z87-A board if you're looking for similar specs and not going for extreme overclocks. Not saying Gigabyte boards are bad by any means, they have always outlived their warranty periods for me, but over the years, Asus boards have given me the fewest problems.

About $20 it looks like. So you should expect more from the UD3H than the D3H. Like 2 more SATA3, Display Port, 2 x eSATA
