I've had boards from both companies and in my personal opinion you already have the superior hardware.

the formula and the classified arent even built for the same thing lol

the classified is built for extreme over the top overclocking

the formula is built for cheap plastic loving l33T gamers.

I don't actually know how good the z87-ud3h is, but if its as good as the z77... you're wasting your money on anything more.

So what do you get over a ud3h in this board... more pcie slots? If you need more than 2 you should probably be using 2011 by now. Also dat scaling.

That's a good one! You don't mind if I steal "cheap plastic-loving l33T gamer" and add it to my work Outlook signature do you? The gals at work will just have a hoot when they see it! rolleyes.gif

When I first saw your post of lol I thought "oh geez I unintentionally offended someone with a Classified board". I look and you ALSO have an Asus RoG board?

It's all good though man. I respect your right to bring your opinion to the mix. thumb.gif

It is a nice looking board.... I have never built on an EVGA, and have always wanted to.

4770k stable @ 5ghz 1.3v

still using it at 4.8 24/7 though because temps on non delidded haswell are dumBBBBB lol. 5ghz for benching though.

and yeah jacob a suggestion i would make for future boards is do some kind of audio like asus put on their z87 boards and their rampage IV black edition. redface.gif i dont like comparing mobo manufacturers features, but that is one that would be awesome to have.

Do you have any proof of this? Would love to see it. I've seen chips benching at 5ghz 1.3v, but never completely stable.

Proof from Szeged? That man is golden. He could tell me he has a gold plated toilet and I'd take him for his word.

You do realize I didn't say this board is going to be horrible, junk, ugly stupid, etc. right?

I'm sure the Classified is going to be a nice board. If one was an accomplished overclocker like yourself it's probably going to be a great board. Given the choice however, I'd stick with what I have; gimmicks included. You may not agree with how the board looks or some of the features Asus added but the current Formula is a decent board that fits the bill for me. I've had EVGA in the past and just didn't care for them. Back then it was just one BIOS issue after another and at the end of the day it felt like they had aimed a little too high. Every once and again I'd have an Asus board give me some grief but those occasions were short lived. Other than that, they just worked.

So there we go. I think we can agree to disagree?

Insulting someone just because their opinions don't match with yours is pretty lame dude,
