Which X58 Mobo is Better?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I was looking at the EVGA X58 SLI and the ASUS P6T Deluxe (ASUS Rampage II Extreme if I have the money) and I was just wondering which is better. I'm more familiar with the EVGA BIOS and the EVGA seems to have better cooling.

The rampage extreme.
Hands down.
Only if you have the money.
But otherwise the EVGA.
What video cards do you intend to put in it?

Hope I helped.
Yours sincerely,

It has to go along with my red and black theme. The video card that's probably going in it is some next-gen nVIDIA card that I do not know about (GTX 300 series?).

Meh, I was a bit skeptical because it only has three memory slots. Sure, it fits my theme, but there are just things that are making me not want it...

I just saw the sneak peak of this board over at hardocp and I really like the looks of it so far. It's also going to be cheaper than the R2E I was going to buy. Based on how the P6T and the R2E are performing, I think the WS board is going to work just as well and I love how it has 6 PCI-E slots and can do 3xSLI @ x16 on all lanes. The only fail I see on this board is lack of 1394 but not much of a concern for me.

P6T6 WS Revolution is currently $369 at ZZF. I'd be ordering one today but don't get paid til the end of the month.
