Yes I edited my post. I was thinking of the Maximus Extreme which is DDR3, not the regular maximus.

It's effectively the same board:

the Maximus has a somewhat different cooling layout, and a PATA RAID controller (for whomever will ever use that).

I might go with the maximus. I have 2 x 250gb PATA for backs. IT would be nice to put them in raid . IT only says 1200mhz ram but it will support 800 right=?
