The OC and G1 series are very good options with the Marvell 9182 Chipset (x2 PCIe 2.0 lanes) which allow up to 1000MB/s vs 9128 which were half the speed due to x1 PCIe. Hmmm I'm not a fanboy of the UD3R, I had to replace my entire office's UD3R's.
NO, the UD3R is NOT better by any stretch.
There's slim pickings @ NewEgg so either the G1 or ASUS P6X58-E WS.
Well the problem is that I cannot find the GIGABYTE G1.Assassin LGA 1366 anywhere been sold in the UK. Most sites offer the X79 version of it, and some others offer the Gigabyte GA-X58-G1-SNIPER edition. I looked on amazon, ebay, ebuyer, scan, dabs and no one is selling it anymore. Is there any other valuable choice? Shall I go for the Gigabyte GA-X58-G1-SNIPER edition??
