Thanks?

Personally, I'd rather have the Sabertooth. But it sucks that it has Realtek LAN instead of Intel. Also wish they'd use the VIA chipset more for onboard audio like the original Sabertooth 55i. It was pretty good in comparison to other onboard audio out there.

I dont know, the Saber is nice and all but... i think the rog uses better over all conponents audio just being the first upside... esp with them having reletivly the same base price...

you know what mother board companies really need to offer color schemes that you can at least order like having the ST color on the CH:V would be my fav.

i think they will come out with it, for this model EK and koolance were talking about releasing full chipset blocks for AMD and I imagine they will be for the CH:V and maybe even the ST but as that is not there flagship maybe not! Plus ROG always gets the good stuff from the after market companies which I hated having the 980A chipset after I found out the where not selling enough to warent a full water block for the chipset
