Summary: my second one of these. first was a version 1. bad power supply took it out. $200.00 down the drain as the warranty was up, just barely. this is a version 3 so the bios screen had a big change. This is a rather stable mother board and has enough heat sinks to cool the depths of hell. video processing is no problem if you have enough RAM. Gaming is even easier on the system whereas video processing does have its demands.
Summary: Amazing mobo!!!!!!!! The main reason I purchased this board over the UD3 and UD5 is the PCI spacing. I run Dual graphics cards and in order to avoid forking out the $ to put them in a loop I choose the UD7. The board allows great airflow to both the GPU's due to its spacing(gpu1 on first pci16X and gpu2 on the forth pci slot down also 16x.
Summary: I am not very good at making decisions on my electronic gear, but this decision was easy. this motherboard is fantastic in every way, and it was worth every penny. I will also reveal that I do not usually follow directions, so I'm pretty sure I must have shorted this thing out a few times while i was adjusting its position in my case, and even though most motherboards will blow their brains out around that time, this one worked fine.
Summary: This board is about (1) one inch bigger than the standard boards on the market requiring a mid-tower case which will allow smooth and ideal cable placement. I use a 750 watt power supply and the board performs well. Board is well made performs well. I doubt other boards out perform or run any better.
Summary: Its like having a Teacher inside your Case. Simple to Install and easy to use with all the great fitures that tel you whats goin on with your RIG, How about the power USB you have Energy comming out of it with your PC turned off.
