Both are excellent boards, check what you need for sata ports, pci-e 2.0 x16 slots, etc ... and decide based on that.

would you benefit from having a higher HT also? I heard anything over 2200 HT is not necessary?

This is a great board! but I'm kinda biased. You will have a great board either way you go tho. What you could do is really look at both and decide which you like better as they will clock very closely. also the boards are very similar the main difference being possible quad fire or quad raid 0

I have been meaning to do some testing on this. Hopefully I can do that tomorrow, and let you know.

DL everest here and see what that gives you. I am assuming you are referring to vcore. I know pre 5.3(everest) my NB voltages were crazy. Under load it said 4.+ volts to the NB. I know everest shows me with a .2v drop from idle to load(1.54 idle 1.52 load) but I haven't confirmed via voltage points.(well i did but I forgot.)

lol....what kind of fan do you have on your Dark night?

Isn't the dark night essentially an HDT 1283? as in my sig...

Also i look forward to those tests on HT speeds there eclipse...try finding out how far its ok to push the HT before we lose performance
