I have some questions regarding both mobo's. Thanks in advance for anyone that can help out.

1) Which is the better mobo?

2) The p6x58d premium has more power share than rampage. What is power share and power phase? Is premiums power phase ok or is formulas one ok too for 4gig oc?

3) What temperatures are people getting with both mobo's?

I have an i7 930 on water and vapor x 5870, and will get another gpu. So cooling and better oc and power is a must.

Here's a review that may help you out:

http://www.bjorn3d.com/read.php?cID=1932&pageID=9578#

http://benchmarkreviews.com/index.ph...&limitstart=16

The first question you ask is tough since we need to ask you what do you consider a better mobo? A mobo that overclocks better? Or is it a mobo that has all the bells and whistles? Better at benchmarks? Better at gaming?

It looks like the P6 is the more expensive one but both OC pretty well, so whatever you choose it's going to be good!

For question 2 the P6 has more phases compared to the formula but the ROG has an 8 phase system which is plenty enough.

If you can afford a Rampage 3, then buy it.

thanks for the replies. i'd like the motherboard to be more geared towards gaming and 4gig oc is my goal. i had the p6x58d premium and it was good,but the case (haf-x) shorted two of them,so i sorta wanna try something new (rampage 3 formula) but if that's not better than the p6x58d premium,then i'd like to just get the 3rd premium lol. my old premium was at 25c idle with vapor x 5870 being at 30c. i'd definately like low temps,good compatibility with graphics card processing,sound card,and ram and easy on the voltage for ram and cpu.

Well.. you can't really go wrong with both those boards.

I'm assuming you've solved the shorting issue associated with the HAF'S? If memory serves me correct it's one of the wires on the cases that's connected to either your power / reset / usb switch in the front panel. They tend to end up shearing their rubber insulation which leads to a ground that kills a lot of boards.

What is this issue you speak of? Does it happen often?

@ mark

yes, the front pcb's pins that's in charge of usb/firewire is so long that it digs thru the wires in charge of fan led switch,so when the HAF-X owners keep the fan led switch on,it can cause a short and direct current into the usb/firewire port of the motherboard and DESTROY IT. Please hot glue or put up a thick sticky pad on your HAF-X to go thru the painful customer/technical service I had to go through (it took me around 3 months to get my part after threatening cooler master with BBB).
