    Yup, very nice! IMHO I would prefer not every interface connector would be black, but still...

    From the reviews I have read the Asus P6T outperforms this board.

    This board is all that is needed. You don't need any of the extra stuff that is with the other boards ...

    I prefer function over form, personally, and I don't care about lights or clear cases. I tinker with my computers too much and clear cases are usually a much bigger pain to deal with, plus less flexible than a real case. Cases are a pet peeve of mine. :)

    That is a minimal for what I need. It doesn't have all the extras with it, so it makes it nice :) I see your point about function over form. I am a neat freak, so of course I will look at it differently than most.

    AZ: I have to agree with Johnny. If you're nit-picking about MOTHERBOARD performance, especially if it's performance differences make the term "negligible" seem like an overstatement....... wow.

    Yea I understand what AZ is talking about, you always want better performance, but yea the difference between those 2 is nothing. Plus, we should always be able to have both, performance and form/design. Shouldn't we :)

    Not nit-picking just making a true statement. If I am going to pay over 200 dollars for something I want the best performing/overclocking I can get.
    X58 is a good board but it is not the best and is the same price with less features.
    Tell me this: Would you pay for a car without extras and less performance as the same car with extras and better performance?

    overclocked to 3.8 GHz and memory frequency at 1810 MHz:

    I'm of the same mind. To each their own, I suppose. :)

    sorry, one PCI slot doesn't cut it. It's not a legacy slot yet.
