Killer NIC enhances your ping times / latency on your internet connection - Sonic Radar is something completely different.

the mpower has just more phases ... some people tend to say its a waste - since 8 phase VRM ist enough even for above average oc.
new supreme is pretty good from my understanding better than the previous models and has very good audio chokes and capacitors supposedly threy took alot of notes from heir real sound card
more power phases= cleaner power to your cpu


asrock as some audio crystalization too I think

anyways who really gcares about onboard sound I have a rampage 4 extreme and I ain't complainin

I honestly think that people overate the killer nics, i run a killer E2200 and 1103 wifi, on my MSI GT70, and to be honest i have issues with certain routers, even with connected to the lan, there are drivers issues also, i couldnt use the latest either, still using what came with my laptop. Asus Maximus uses an intel nic that personally i value much more than Killer nic, stable and i never have had any trouble with drivers with intel nics. The sound cards, most of them are 1150s, with software that emulates stuff that i personally dislike, if you want a real sound card just get a Xonar. Things that i do value from asus is FanXpert2, by far the best sofware to control fans, but each to its own, overall i think MSI and Gigabyte make great mobos, just dont have the features that i value.

after some doubt I opted for the Asus Hero. For these reasons, and also because the MSI was out of stock biggrin.gif
Also asus is always more reliable.

MSI and gigabyte are fine manufacturers, and even then, there is no guarantee that asus will have better quality mobos, all have their issues, there is no perfect company. I prefer asus out of the features the mobos comes, like intel nic and fanXpert2, but if i didn't care i would probably save more $$$ and went with MSI Z87-G45, its has very good reviews, at $150 imo its one of the best mobos.
