I've heard great things about ASRock these days.

The ASRock extreme 9/7 are the best sub 350 without a doubt. I thought about a couple of the asus boards but they either had only 4 memory slots or were limited on sata iii ports.

Here is neweggs comparison between the 3 higher grade boards up to 350.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007627%20600238945%20600036418&IsNodeId=1&bop=And&ShowDeactivatedMark=False&CompareItemList=280%7C13-157-285%5E13-157-285-TS%2C13-131-801%5E13-131-801-TS%2C13-131-800%5E13-131-800-TS

The asrock 9 has double the 3.0 ports and more sata iii ports. This isn't going to be a rig I swap parts out for fun, it is going to last me a while so I am going for the extra cost of the extreme 9. If I do find a sabertooth or pro cheap enough I might go that way but for the price difference the 16+2phase power and extra ports is worth the 15-25.00 increase in price.

Yeah, the 9 looks like a good board, I wish these boards had 4x sata3 by x79.

I see from the other thread your going after a 3820, and your getting the extreme 9 as well? What cooling setup will you be using?

I will be. I will just be using a cheap air cooler (hyper 212+ evo) with little to no overclocking at first (what I can get by with). Then I will start buying the parts to watercool.

The ECS Black Edition is pretty darn nice and cheap, besides it being one of the faster boards out there.

They are the only ones who have kept the SAS 6 connections native to the chipset after Intel decided to drop them. I'm curious how those ports end up working out.

I am just making a suggestion lol, mainly because the blck clocking will give a lot of options when OCing the 3820, the best board for it.
I figured hes got a X58 bigbang, he might take that suggestion
its a great board for BLCK, legit results here against other boards: http://hwbot.org/forum/showthread.php?t=36334&page=3 (post23).

Wrong. It is listed at $399.99 on NCIX.com.

That's the only board that interests me. The ROG is cool for having straight plugs into the 7970DCII though, but that's like 500 lol. I'd give that up for 230 AR or something such for the ECS.
