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?

Unfortunately, Asus mainboard was often ahead and sometimes quite significantly. In fact, we have come across only one mainboard so far that would take so long – 167 seconds – to calculate 8 million digits of the Pi. You may not be surprised to find out that it was EVGA X58 SLI Classified. And again we see the same result, and again on an EVGA mainboard.
overclocked to 3.8 GHz and memory frequency at 1810 MHz:
In fact, nothing has changed. The minimal fps rate in Crysis Warhead turned out unexpectedly high, while in other tests things are not so rosy again for EVGA X58 SLI LE mainboard. We saw very similar situation during our tests of EVGA X58 SLI Classified mainboard, but at that time our readers expressed an opinion that the lag had to do with the additional NVIDIA NF200 controller. It was allegedly creating additional delays. As we can see now, the controller has nothing to do with it. Even without it EVGA X58 SLI LE mainboard is still considerably behind the competitor.

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

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
