I was not trying to jack the thread by the way I just figured it would be better for all of us to get it explained in this same thread. I have read a lot on the Power Phases but I'm still not sure what difference we could expect to see in an overclock between the two.

The scaling with the 4xx series is actually quite good on some games. The 5xx series doesn't do nearly as well.

GTX 470

Game - Resolution - Single Card/Two Way SLI/Three Way SLI

Metro 2033 - 1920x1200 - 21/41/59
Battlefield Bad Company 2 - 1920 x 1200 - 43/80/101
Dirt 2 - 1920x1200 - 63/113/135
Far Cry 2 -1920x1200 - 66/124/150
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 - 1920x1200 - 105/185/195
Dawn of Discovery - 1920x1200 - 56/108/117
Crysis Warhead - 1920x1200 - 41/68/84
Just Cause 2 - 1920x1200 - 60/94/128

The jump from two way to three way isn't substantial for many games but it helps in some that are insanely intensive like Metro 2033. Plus that third card just adds lots of PPD

And personally, I would keep the asus board. Better cooling, better warranty, and a more established motherboard brand. I know evga has been around for a little while, but look at how long asus has been around. I'd take an asus board over an evga board any day.
and id take evga board over asus anyday (yes ive owned both, asus boards to ugly nowadays)

Highly doubt you'd notice any difference. Personally, I'm going with the Sabertooth.

For my 1090T, this 5+1 Biostar mobo overclocks better/is more stable than my old 8+2 ASUS board.

I just noticed the FTW3 has some NB overheating problems... should I still get it? How big of a deal is it.
