Released April, 2009
The Pros:Plenty of ports and slots for expansion. Can handle a full 16GB of DDR3 with 4 slots, fast access times. Built-in RAID controller and 6 SATA ports makes setting up a RAID easy.
The Cons:PCI-E x16 slot is squeezed between the RAM and the Southbridge, makes for a tight fit.
The Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3LR is a full-sized ATX motherboard with a CPU slot for Intel LGA 775 chips. This is nearly identical to the Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3L, but now has built-in RAID support. This enables users to build a home theater system with either robust automatic backups or faster access times.

can have more USB ports than most will ever need
plenty of PCI-E x1 slots for Firewire, extra SATA connectors, Ethernet cards and other things along those lines
Frontside bus is faster than on most motherboards
