Lol hahahah. So many comedians in this forum. Ahhhh the joys of being young.
Well I want to use this PC for play and for work. So I don't want to risk damaging it for no reason
Other then to post a cool pic of some awesome test score. Hahaha
I'm joking of course. I know you guys love the whole " pushing your hardware to its limit thing "
To each his own. But it's not my thing.

Silly people in this forum lol.
Happy time PC.

If you're not overclocking why get a cheap ASRock X79 board?

Here's a feature set comparison.

I had to look on my board for a min based on what was posted in this thread lol thanks for clearing up the misinformation cause my LE board is handling my OC fine.

Thanks for that link. I didn't know you could compared side by side at newegg. That's awesome.
I think the LE.is right for me. The only reason I was asking about the 2 other higher end boards was just in case there was something super important that it was missing that I might regret not having down the line. It doesn't seem like it. But I could be wrong.

Thanks again
Happy time PC.
