Eh kind of torn between one of Gigabyte's offerings and the CHV.
Probably will come down to cost.

While my current board has been 'okay', I probably wouldn't buy another Asrock board for an enthusiast platform at this point in time.

Better to have a feature like that and never use it, then not have it and need it.

Not if you're paying money for stupid features but don't even get decent power phases.

EDIT: Also, hard to think of a feature you'd actually need which you don't already have in a perhaps more basic form anyway.
