Gigabyte tends to cut down on feature before VRM
Asus/ASRock tend to cut down on phase quality/quantity before features.

Business philosophy as to what people want, I tend to buy/recommend Gigabyte more because my builds for myself and my friends focus on single GPU setups with quality overclocking capabilities.

Yeah, at 4.6 GHz but tbh it's more a marketing thing than anything else: as long as you buy a good motherboard you'll never see it limiting your overclock. Testings CPU's would be useful through. wink.gif +rep

I will be OCing, so this was nice to read, but then again, a lot of boards get 4,6 with a 3770k

Yeah and you could get more without a doubt on the D3H or MPower etc. but the CPU will be the limiting factor far before you reach the mobo capatibilities e.g Sin got a 6.6 GHz on the UD3H.

There's the "silicon lottery" for CPU's, but for boards good quality power delivery parts will run at their rated amperage and that's it. thumb.gif

I've heard "rumors" that current 2011 boards will likely be upgradeable via a bios update...I'm assuming there's way to many "if's" still to know with any certainty, but has anyone heard differently? I have an ASUS Rampage IV Formula MOBO.

This is always the best part of a new build, reading reviews, doing research, discuss different options thumb.gif

The socket will be 2011, so I don't see why this won't work?

You're correct, the X79 platform won't be phased out for quite some time. New Sandy Bridge-E processors such as the 3980X and new Ivy Bridge-E processors will both be supported by the X79 platform, I'm assuming a BIOS update will be needed for the IB-E processors.

I've been reading reviews, and I saw the Asus Maximus V Gene. Is is a small board, but since I want a Corsair Carbide 300R, that might be perfect.
