honestly I have looked at all the gigabyte boards and none of them make me say "now thats a board" i think if i had to stray away from the v formula i would either go with a different asus or the mpower... not that i dont appreciate the suggestions and info... thanks guys.

I misread, OP just get the Formula and be happy with it since you must have red & black.

thats correct and the extreme is a tad pricey for my blood. I have about $850 to spend and that covers the 670 FTW, AX750, and the V formula. then I will just be waiting for the swiftech h220 to come out..most of the reviews for the formula are very good aside from the problem with the wifi card which I wont use anyway... in the battle between V formula vs Mpower the winner is obvious.. I was just hoping there was a board I had missed in my search that had more for the dough. I know gigabyte has a good rep but the color scheme i cant get past...asrock is not for me and msi has too many gimmicky features i dont need. also I really dont care for vga and dvi ports...no use for them and they look cluncky on the I/O no need for a ps2 port either.

Another sweet thing about the V formula is all the PWM headers on the board.... with fan expert II that gives me fan control over the entire case within the software...
