Asus has clear performance leadership, but is it the best motherboard choice? Let’s consider our options.

With a performance “disadvantage” of less than one-half percent, the MSI 790FX-GD70 provided superior graphics card slot spacing and overclocking compared to the M4A79T Deluxe. MSI’s motherboard is also slightly less expensive and includes several added features, such as dual-Gigabit LAN and support for three more SATA devices.

But both Asus and MSI have some trouble in the area of cable header placement, with audio and FireWire connections in the lower-rear corner that are nearly impossible to reach with the cables of top-panel ports. Additionally, both companies have neglected the stubborn Windows XP market for which floppy drives are occasionally useful, by putting the floppy header beneath the lowest expansion slot.

With a performance deficit of less than a tenth of one percent compared to MSI, the Gigabyte GA-MA790FXT-UD5P also had the highest CPU overclock and the best cable header layout. The only disadvantage is its use of only two PCIe x16 slots, but the remaining slots don’t steal any pathways from the x16 slots. Thus, it could be a better board for anyone considering one or two dual-GPU graphics cards, rather than three or four single-GPU units.

Finally there’s the DFI LANParty DK 790FXB-M3H5, which is nearly average in every way except price–it’s around 20% cheaper than other 790FX Socket AM3 solutions, and could be the basis for a reduced-cost gaming system.

MSI’s best-in-class features make the 790FX-GD70 a top value among the three most expensive boards, but most of our editors would probably choose the Gigabyte MA790FXT-UD5P for its cable header placement.
They still did not take in thier own research. Asus was the winner in most of the test that were done in this test and then they say they like the Gigabyte. Well I like the Gigabyte too but that doesn't make it the top clocker. I stand by the results of the Top CPU overclocks of 09.

I got the M4A79T Deluxe board last week for a future build but I'm itching to try this out so I might go get some DDR3 memory today and put it in my Scout. I'm really bored!

but you have put GB 790XT in 3rd place why???
if msi is 2nd in toms test must 3rd in your classification not 4th
I believe that ASUS is the Queen of over clocking and GB is the 2nd
but not in 790x vs msi 790fx

because the Top overclocks put the Gigabyte in number two. I only used this diverse chart to prove a point on page two. The World records makes the Gigabyte #2 and I stand behind it.
