More of the juvenile "DFI owns!" etc. HardOCP has tested both boards a lot more thoroughly than anyone on this site has. I admit my experience is limited to the Asus which is why I trust reliable review sites rather than fanboys.
Back up your statements with facts and I will be happy to get onboard. It was a tough choice for me between the DFI and Asus. Ultimately, the reviews at Hard OCP, Tom's Hardware, and Anandtech (all of whom have reviewed both boards. A show of hands in this forum for anyone else? Anyone? exactly) decided it for me.
If someone asks for advice respond in a mature, fact supported manner. Otherwise, go play with an Xbox.
Well i dont say DFI owns for no reason dude. Take a look out of the perspective you are viewing at now. Why do you think basically ALL (not literally ALL but basically ALL) expert overclockers here prefer the DFI mobos, and do strongly reccomend them to all people who want the best OC they possibly can achieve on their preferred and used cooling device(s).
You refer to three sites. there are more sites than that, and i have definately seen atleast three reviews where the DFI purely owns most tests and stuff like that. I dont mind searching for them now cause im lazy and not feeling too happy but thats another matter. The point is that DFI lets you tweak almost all settings that are tweakable. Let me give you an example. You have a broken car, and you have the choice of fixing it with two sets of tools. One set of tools is from Asus, they have fancy packaging, lots of high quality stable tools and everything seems well organized and not too advanced. The other toolbox comes from DFI, and looks kinda wierd cause its Black, yellow and orange (just like the board
). You notice that the DFI board is alot larger and its just crammed full with LOTS of tools youve never ever seen, heard, or even thought about. The asus toolbox will work fine but if you want to repair your car to the max, and bla bla bla bla the DFI will clearly be better but you just need the time and patience to learn the Toolbox/board.
