Help me decide between these mobos...

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

So I need your help to decide between these mobos for my next build.
Money is no issue so please don't take that into account when giving your opinion.
The rig will eventually become my main gaming rig but it'll be used for benching first and foremost (took a long hiatus from the HWBOT, it's highly time I start benching again rolleyes.gif ), which is why I can't really decide between the following mobos.
So far I'm looking at these 3:

- Asus Rampage V Extreme/U3.1
- Asus X99-E WS
- Asrock X99 Extreme 11

As far as why these, well, both the X99-E WS and Extreme 11 sport PLX chips that would allow me to run 4 Fury X in CFX, all at 16x (before you point it out, yes I know the difference between 16x/16x/16x/16x and 16x/16x/8x/8x is minimal, but for beching every little bit helps). As for the Rampage, well from what I've seen it seems to be the most stable of all 3 so maybe it could reach higher ocs. It also sports a way better audio chipset (for when I finally start gaming on that rig).


So.... thoughts?
