    Re: Gigabyte X99-UD4P

    As I am looking to build a high end rig without worrying (within limits, maybe generous limits, but still limits)about budget this is useful. It does seem that the X99 platform is already starting to show its age. PCIe/M2 are the obvious way to go for blazing fast boot times (less cabling is a nice bonus), whilst I am not a fan of multi graphic card set ups, at the very high end that is normal. Yet X99 boards still struggle with PCIe/M2 + multi graphic card set ups.

    Personally I will probably go with ASUS or ASRock board, but that is simply because I have used them a lot over the years and they have always been rock solid - I know that is not everyones experience but it is mine

    I thought they were the best suited boards for that sort of thing? The lesser boards run out of PCIe lanes while X99 can in most implementations do full PCiE 3.0 x4 M2 and have a ridiculous amount left over for graphics.

    A bit late to the OC socket game, and why the hell would you need a pointless switch to "activate" the extra pins?

    Capitalization is the difference between helping your Uncle Jack
    off a horse and helping your uncle jack off a horse.

    My guess is that this is related to how they developed the OC socked. The other MFR's probably had patents that dictated how GB could implement "their" version of the OC Socket. I could very well be wrong, but this to me, seems the most logical.
