I'm getting a microcenter deal on the CPU + mobo that will save me $70 (before shipping).
The price difference at MC is $30. I would pay for the ASUS, but I feel like I'd be getting more bang for my buck from the Gigabyte since I don't need WiFi.
The UD5H: has better audio (I believe) and a smoother UEFI for noobs like me (from what I've read)
The V-Pro: better name brand, WiFi, better fan control, 16 phase power design (whatever that means)
Anyone care to weigh in on these 2 motherboards?
Here is my (still unfinished) build btw:
(* = part already ordered)
I have read that it is supposed to be the best overclocker of the 3, and It seems like it has everything I want.
My only concern is that it is a mATX board. Is there any reason that I should stay away from this, or any other micro ATX mobo?
I am also thinking of changing the processor from the 3570k to a 2700k because MC has them on sale for $244. Would this change affect your choice of boards at all?
