God that took some reading!

It doesn't perform much better than the P35 dfi and is almost identicle to the blitz, bar a few extra insane/unusable voltage options so I feel no inclination to buy this.

Nice to see the score being penalised for the pretty outragous price!

Overall, ROG ftw!Quote

Yeah, personally I wouldn't upgrade from a Blitz or other high-end P35 board to it as it doesn't really have much more going for it (not until we see some PCI-E 2.0 ATI cards worth CF'ing).

But as a purchase for a new rig it's one hell of a beastly board - and I'm real glad that watercooling isn't a requirement anymore. That was a pretty big downer on the Blitz.Quote

Mr. Smith
I guess it's lucky I had w/c for the blitz! That is a marked improvement, did you actually state that in the review? That water was no longer required? Must have missed that.

The only additional thing I would have liked to have seen is the removal of the nb waterblock just so you could further comment on its construction...

Re. cards worth CF'ing, I hope there are some I have this desire to CF or SLI even though I know its not really worth it!Quote

The block is actually extremely hard to remove as they've used some kind of thermal cement on it. I did have a quick go at levering it off, but didnt want to get a slapped wrist for breaking one of Asus limited review boards

As for the construction, the heatpipe side of things is the same as the blitz, but the finned heatsinks around the block and on the 'fets feel much thicker aluminium.Quote
