ASUS P5N-D or EVGA 750I FTW

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
both boards are lookin pretty good to me but which is more cost effective is my main question.

i plan on having a q6600(oc'ed) and sli 8800gt's(either board is gonna be a tight fit in sli so im not worried bout that)

im really lookin to save money so if you give me a reason to go with the cheaper board i probably will unless theres something the evga has over asus thats critical.

I have the ASUS P5N-D and it's a good board.

The EVGA 750i FTW's NB Heatsink incorporates the SB's heatsink aswell and allows for a decent fan to be put on.

So does the ASUS P5N-D but there are two seperate heatsinks for the NB and SB.

With my P5, I have 2 8800GT's with Thermalright HR-03's Rev A on them, both mounted the opposite direction and the one mounted at the top covers all of the NB Heatsink so I'm struggling to get a bigger fan.

I've put on a heat sensor on the NB and temps are at 45 - 47 Degrees @ 3.6ghz and about 1.5vto the NB.

With regards to going SLI, the ASUS doesn't have much space between the cards, whereas the EVGA has 2 PCI slots.

To be honest, I think the fact that the NB cooler appears to be of higher quality and the SLI slots are further apart means I'd personally change my Asus for the EVGA (not to mention it looks so much better lol)

I can get the ASUS for £96 Inc Postage and Package on www.overclockers.co.uk
The EVGA FTW is $189 on Newegg so they're roughly the same price?
I can't find one in the UK but I know hardware in the UK isn't directly half the price of the US.

In my opinion, I'd get the Evga but if you aren't bothered about the space between the cards of the NB temps (by about 5 degrees) but are more bothered about the price, I'd say Asus.
