Title: Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H Motherboard
URL: http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/artic...therboard/1520

Here is a snippet:
"The Intel Z77 chipset will be released by the end of this month, but we had the privilege of getting the Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H for a "first look" article. It will be a top mainstream socket 1155 motherbo..."

I like this motherboard a lot. I might get it.

Just want to point out that voltage regulation on UD3H is surprisingly more efficient out of all the boards in it's class.
Just by running OCCT CPU stress test, the graph shows the least amount of ripples at any given point of load, which just may indicate how irrelevant all those additional power phases today really are on MBs.

So how does UD3H manage it's power delivery to CPU so successfully while with less phases on board to work with? Now this is something I'd really would like to know.

Can you please post links to where you saw these results? Because we didn't test this.

See here for complete comparison I'm shocked as I would have had my money on MSI

Turns out Gigabyte seems to be cheating with their voltage regulation more info here http://www.anandtech.com/show/6296/g...lt-times-two/4

I would be cautious, since they are relying on a program to read the voltage sensors instead of measuring the voltages using a professional voltmeter with tight tolerance... Voltage-reading through software may not be reliable.
