More options for people to play with, some of which may actually be useful if set properly.

they're on each side of the CPU.

Question though: why does the ud5 have 8 RAM slots, and the ud7 only have 4 ?

damn those goddamn motherboards look good.
the g1 assassin and x79-ud7 look pretty loud, in a good way.
i'd prefer the x79-ud5 for the ram slots tho', i can make good use of those. :) 
i don't think you'd find many of the x79 mobo features in z68 boards.

AFAIK G1. assasin is for gamer mind
you get killerNIC and creative soundcard

as for UD7 is more for enthusiast/OC
as you can see, there board have several voltage button as well voltage pins to measure voltage

UD5 and UD3 basically toned down from UD7

its good things gigabyte now make each product more clearly.. the difference is just more visible

It's a matter of opinion but I bet most people would say the X79-UD7.

The G1.Assassin 2 has a Bigfoot Networks Killer E2100 NIC which is supposed to lower ping times and a Creative Soundblaster X-Fi digital audio processor which should be better than any other on-board audio solution.

The X79-UD7 has a 20 phase CPU VRM and 6 phase RAM VRM compared to the G1.Assassin 2 and X79-UD3 which only have an 8 phase and the X79-UD5 which has a 12 phase. That, on top of a few other OC goodies make it by far the enthusiast's choice (as for Gigabyte anyway) motherboard.

Not quite. Their old OC mobo had the same color scheme so it's easy to make that mistake and this new X79-UD7 is essentially the successor to their old OC but they didn't put it in the name.

8 DIMMs takes a lot of space. They have their reasons but I would hardly call it a fail.

SneakySnakewhy does ud5 have 8 RAM slots, and ud7 only have 4?


Because Intel recommends 1 DIMM per channel for maximum performance and that certainly is the case for OCing.

I would say G1 for having Bigfoot Killer E2100 network processor and Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi, which if you buy as separate cards cost something in the range of 200 bucks.

Why are the RAM slots placed on both sides of the CPU? I can imagine that will make installing coolers difficult.
