Well I tried to buy one from Scan for £119 but they sold out the day I went to buy it and then they told me a week later it was discontinued with them....Wonderful
I'd been toying with the idea of getting a mega cheap P55 mobo like the Asus P7P55D standard model for £98 off ebay but then I saw that OverclockersUK were selling the UD5 but at like £135 so didn't bother at the time. I then decided I would bother only to see they were sold out but suddenly had two in the "B Grade" section for £109.
I called up to see why these ones were B Grade and he said that it's likely that they were returned for a refund and they couldn't sell them as new. I was dubious as I'd heard that they sometimes come boxless and with the back panel shield missing.
Anyway I decided to go for it anyway as I'm only using it for 5 - 6 months. Ordered it yesterday and it turned up today. It came in a mankey old brown box and I was worried. I opened that box to find a perfect as new P55-UD5 box inside. I opened that and all the accessories are present and unopened and it didn't look like even the motherboard had been removed.
Gotta say I'm pretty impressed with that. A pretty solid board for a very decent price.
Basically not a very useful post, but I figured I'd share my experience and also that OCUK B Grade stuff isn't all that bad. Infact, mine is as new.
