Well he certainly is benchmarking with Asus...not sure Sapphire would go along with that

It's just a common sense assumption of mine...obviously I don't have the guy's contract in front of me.
OCing with them and the Sapphire boards don't have a Shamino feel to them. Seem to be missing too many things. Unlike this P67 lineup from Asus.

the X58 pure looks like an almost exact replica of the 758.

I was more thinking the Classified/4-Way not the 758 which was more a standard X58 board
+1 to reflex's recommendation on the EVO!

the 758 and the X58 pure are almost identical, which kinda shows the eVGA guys' influence
