Dual slot coolers x 3 vga leaves no room for a add in card.

Maximus of course.

Get the Maximus - it means you will also be able to run the first 2 GPUs in x16/x16 and on the whole, it's a much better mobo for OC'ing.

It's a much more loaded board, but it's not a much better board if we look at the end result. Especially considering it, the ws revo can actually run 4 dual slot Red cards.

I personally like the WS Revo because of the spacing between cards. There's 3 full slots between cards without having to resort to the lowest slots.

2 full empty slots between 580s would be lovely for me, but sadly I don't think X58 to P67/Z68 is worth it.

X79 here I come.
