Yeah, what the General said.
Plus, what I was told is, the first card is the governor for the gang, it connects at full speed, the second card just plays follow the leader and the third card. Well, I too was told that if you go Tri-Sli or Crossfire, you won't see a difference and your frame rates will only go up by 10-30 fps depending on what cards you use. The third slot was originally designed so you could through a cheap Physx card in there, it doesn't need a full speed path to do it's job so they didn't make you pay for it. In Crossfire mode the greatest speeds are gained with 2 cards anyway (the new line-up, I don't know about the old) adding a 3rd is just a little octane boost and isn't worth the price of the card.

It's the same with Ram timings. I know a guy who does research for computer companies and one of his tests was to get people to look at the 1866 ram that Corsair came out with each was set with different timings... 6-6-6, 7-7-7, 8-8-8 and 9-9-9. He tested 50 people, they didn't know which one they were seeing and the order was mixed, of those, only 15 said they thought Windows 7 Pro windows popped open a little snappier, the rest couldn't see any difference and in games no one could see any difference. I've mentioned this guy before he has an i-7 920 proc that does 4.5Ghz on air with something like 1.27volts. It's called "The Drunken Monkey".

Anyway, the MSI board runs 16x 16x 4x. Another thing the Evga has, onboard and rear access Cmos re-set buttons (well you have to pin them so you don't hit them accidentally). Plus the LED readout on the motherboard has saved my behind many times.

good choice for the case?
I have that motherboard and I find it to be adequate for my overclocking, but it does have some quirks. Most likely, your IOH will have an abnormally high temperature in comparison with other boards. I knew this before getting the board and decided to fix it myself, but if it were today, I would probably get the board that BriSleep recommended instead. Either way I don't think you'll be disappointed if you're willing to put new TIM and do a washer mod to the MSI board.

No it won't. Mine was around 75 degrees at stock and Intel only says to worry when it reaches around 100 I believe. In short, it really is no big deal.

Oh man, you just had to ask that. Yes, it will. BTW, don't be afraid to ask anything on this thread, usually someone will answer, but if you get me, you may be in for a lesson. Searh this thread for 80+ ratings.

So here's some answers for you:
Mostly it affects your ability to overclock. With the MSI board you may not reach 3.2Ghz if you don't change the TIM. PM Rom 3000 and ask him how long it took and how frustrating it got. IOH, is the new word for the northbridge because north/south bridge doesn't really apply anymore.

Oh, the reason it's easier on Evga boards is they add more gold on the PLL, QPI and IOH lines. The Classified boards have up to 4oz more gold than any other board on the market & you certainly pay for it.

Here's a fix if you do get the MSI: http://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=129339.0 Is this about what you did ROM3000?

I'll post these but check back because I usually find more. BTW, I'm not filtering for the MSI boards, it just comes out this way.

I stand corrected Like I said before, I probably would go for the EVGA board anyway but it wasn't around when I was building my system. If you do end up getting the MSI board, it isn't that hard to change the TIM and add fiber washers. You just have to be careful when removing the heatsink. PM me if you need any help with it.
