the UD3R one seems insanely popular for reasons I don't know.
which one would you choose and why?

UD3L if you dont need RAID!

Did you all notice the 2TB disk gag...?

Only ich9r, ich9do, ich10r, ich10do manage them. NOT ich10d, ich9m-e, no ich8, no ich7...

2TB disks already exist, but hey, you do it as you want!

The UD3R looks better if you want to run 50,000 hard drives at once, and it apparently the UD3L doesn't have a 1394 port. But otherwise I don't see much difference and I'd just get the cheaper one.

If I were building a new system, I'd honestly pick neither of these. I'd rather have one with DDR3 support and more than one PCIe x16 slot.

I also have no idea why most people would ever need four PCIe x1 slots.

The UD3L, P, and R all have ICH10R South Bridges. What's your point.
