depends on what you are using your system for really each mobo has it's own advantage.

Go over to DFI-Street.com. It is a sight totally dedicated to DFI enthusiasts. You should get enough information to come to a conclusion.

They're the same board...however the UT version does not include some of the bundled stuff that the non-UT includes such as a Front-X controller and LED diagnostics

Basically they'll both do the same thing and the UT can have the bundled items bought seperately if you really wanted them...I would save your money and stick with the UT board

Yea if you want to save money, go with the UT, but if you dont mind spending a little extra money for some cool extras, get the non-UT.
