WS:
- Industry leading Digital 20 Phase Power Design
(16 -phase for CPU, 4 -phase for iGPU)
- Industry leading Digital 2 Phase DRAM Power Design

Actually the ws revo can only do tri sli. It also doesn't have the same quality vrm as a ROG board, those have the ROG Extreme Engine vrm and all the other boards have the Digi+.

My 2600k gaming rig runs on a P8P67 WS Revo. It OC's like a beast and offers alot of expandability.
No VRM issues I am aware of. I don't view it as inferior to my ROG boards in terms of quality. It just doesn't have some of the bell's and whistles they do which I rarely if ever use.

Awesome guys, thanks so much! Looks like I will be getting this board, as I was a bit of an idiot and went with Asus' light-edition z68 board and a non-oc cpu, thinking I would get a k-series IB later, and oc then....but alas, the board I have is apparently crap for big overclocks, so I will be getting the WS + a 3770k when it comes out. Looking forward to it biggrin.gif

It's not inferior if you were referring to my comment on the vrms. The WS Revo goes about it differently. Instead of the ROG Extreme Engine, it is saddled with the cheaper Digi+, so Asus added 4 more phases to give it the stability needed to ensure stability in a 24/7 environment. I prefer the stripped down essentials philosophy of the Revo. The ROG boards in P67/Z68 are a waste. They don't add the kick of LN2 and over voltage heaven like the ROG x79 R4E. Now there's one baddarse board with it's hotwire with DC2's.

If I was getting a new board and didn't already own two WS Revos, that is the boar I would get (well if not for the R4E + DC2 combo). thumb.gif

Yea I love my RIVE but it, like all my other ROG boards, offer more than I'll ever use. They are rock solid though and always worth the money IMO. I have been nothing but pleased with my WS Revo though. Very feature filled in its own right, Simplistic, and rock solid.

Anyway, if something ever happened to my WS Revo in my other rig I would replace it with this board in a heartbeat thumb.gif

Maybe from now on I'll just by WS boards instead of the ROG boards biggrin.gif
