Thanks for the links. Looks like the Mpower is much better "out of the box", but after OCing, its shines. I'll be making my final decision shortly!

Thanks for all the advice. I ended up going with the GB UD5H - mostly because it had more connectivity. All the suggested boards are great however. Also picked up an EVGA GTX 670 FTW Sig2 as a bit of a splurge!

Awesome... both are pieces of hardware I would have suggested smile.gif

I love my 670 FTW and the UD5H is a great board, I had a nice time with it on my brother's gaming build.

The FTW Sig 2 is a nice card thumb.gif

I never seem to be able to get speedfan to work properly.

You need to setup the speedfan settings under the following:
Configure => Advanced Tab => Chip Drop down and Pick IT8728F => You will see three PWM modes... change them to software controlled.

Now you have full PWM control on all PWMs on the mobo. I use the CPU fan one to control my MCP35x2 Pumps.

Sniper 3 has full fan control through speedfan... bios not so.

So did you just confirm that Sniper supports full individual fan header control in both voltage and PWM modes? Nice. Weird that Sniper 3 manual doesn't list PWM control on non-CPU headers.
