So you still suggest Gigabyte?

Whats about "ECS X79R-AX Black Extreme" ...

http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2397559,00.asp

The X79R-AX Black Extreme is otherwise well stocked. Two USB 2.0 headers and one USB 3.0 headers give you some expanded front- and rear-panel expandability (and an included bracket, designed for use in either an expansion slot or a 3.5-inch drive bay, makes the USB 3.0 easy to set up). Then there's the activity on the rear panel: one PS/2 port for hooking up a legacy keyboard or mouse, six USB 2.0 ports, four more USB 3.0 ports, dual Gigabit Ethernet jacks, and S/PDIF and eight-channel audio outputs, all joining a "Clear CMOS" button for returning to default settings regardless of what changes you make and integrated Bluetooth and Wi-Fi adapters for some additional freedom as far as networking connectivity.

An excellent graphical UEFI improves and simplifies the process of changing all of your system's crucial settings. Built-in M.I.B. X profiles save the most useful settings for low-risk overclocking. QoolTech IV, present on the motherboard's two largest heat sinks, tell you at a glance whether your system is operating within safe temperatures. And USB ports with EZ Charger offer three times as much current than typical ones when the computer is off, making it easier to power up your devices any time you want.

ECS is honestly crap, gigabyte has the wiki/bt as well on the UD5, and G1 Assassin 2.

The UD3 however doesn't. THe ECS actually can blow up, they use very ow quality VRM parts compared to gigabyte, and gigabyte has fixed their VRM issue with BIOS F7, so not they will definitely shut down or downclock your OC before they blow up.

Yes I still suggest those gigabyte boards which are still on sale(which is UD3, UD5, and G1 Assassin 2.)

ECS lol, you c an buy the board if you want I wouldn't. That review isn't very good, how can you read a block of text like that unless it is in the magazine? Even then they are writing 3 paragraphs for the board and a crap load of advertising money.

sure mate you can get which ever you want.

if i was you i would pick between asus and gigabyte, find one that fits your price and has the features you like. That is what i would do. However you could also chose some msi or asrock board too, they run a bit cheaper.

What is wrong with the MSi BigBang-Xpower II  ....?  I am pretty sure it's equiviliant to ur board in every way.

And now out of the blue suddenly everyone's soo damn smart... I took my time (2 hours actually ) to read all the posts (some of them are written based on knowledge and experience especially Sin0822's posts but the others are crap) and never in my life facepalmed so much as I did now when I read this. Every human being makes mistakes ok? What, so you don't make mistakes you were born perfect is that it? I own a Gigabyte Z68XP-UD3P board and the Asus P8P67 Deluxe board and I can tell you honstly that the Asus P67 has more issues than the Gigabyte Z68. I don't go complaining, spitting and dissing just because I gave my money to the company which sold me a terrible board I live with it, and you should also learn to live with it.
