But thats really just the impression Ive always felt from the feature differences on the boards. Get what suits your needs

Yea it seems that the oc force is really aimed at benchers/ln2 overclockers. Although I do plan on putting a healthy oc on my 4770k, it will be for gaming alone and not synthetic benches. From what I understand, the sniper is a good board for Ocing as well, it just doesn't have as many features as the oc force

Quite correct. However (even if I personally don't like it haha) I wouldn't say the sniper has less features, it has "different" ones. It should not hold you back in any way for your overclock tho... You would only notice a difference in OC with those boards under extreme cooling or specific configurations.

That's pretty much the conclusion that I've come to myself. Definitely going to give this board a chance. Thanks for your input man, +rep
