Flamgingblade, good board?

post #1 of 8

Should I get this board or a different one?

Required features I need...
Dual Gigabit LAN <- Most important
Optical Audio Port
4+ Sata Ports
Raid 0
Triple Channel Memory
SLI

I'm doing a media center / NAS build and debating motherboards. Because its not my main computer (it'll be attached to my TV downstairs), I don't want to break the bank. I'm setting my mobo spending limit at under $200, and preferably cheaper. I don't mind an open box item if it makes sence. Overclocking about 15-30% would be nice, but not completely nessesary. Main thing is heat output and power consuption (it will be on 24/7), so a board that can hit a 20% OC without voltage tweaking would be awesome. It needs to back up 1.5TB of data once a week from my other computer, and will be doing a small to average amount of gaming on a 47" 1080p LCD.

One thing with that board is that you wouldn't really be able to upgrade the ram because there are only 3 ram slots.

3 Ram slots is a bit of a downfall, but 6 sticks don't OC well... Looking at some open box buys I'm slightly expanding my search... I'm now looking at several boards and I'm curious which one I should go with...

I don't care about Sata 6 since I'm not using SSDs, and no current hard drive can saturate Sata 3. USB 3.0 is ok, but not really important. I might use 2 x 240GTX plus an 8800GT for Physx in the future, so full bandwidth PCI-E might be nice.

Here is a snippet from HardOCP.com

Foxconn Flaming Blade
The Flaming Blade amounts to a cut down version of the BloodRage we looked recently. Both are similar in appearance, but that's where the similarities end. Despite being stripped down and having a really gay sounding name, the experience we had with it was a far better one than the BloodRage provided.

From all these boards, I'd personally take p6x58D premium, if you need the usb3 and sata6, otherwise the p6td deluxe or p6t deluxe v2 are your best pick from that pool

Foxconn murders employees with 34-hour shifts.

This seems to be a good board.

Wow, thats not really funny at all...

As for the board, I am interested as well, my friend is thinking about getting that board since its one of the lower costing boards with a reputable company.

Not being funny. Seriously, the board looks pretty good. 3 RAM slots may seem like a joke to some, but with 2GB sticks, it's completely adequate.
