so besides the color scheme (i got uv blue tubing and blue led kingston ramfan and blue 140mm rear fan) of the p6x58d being blue while rampage being red and p6x58d having 16+2 power phase over the rampage 3 formula having only 8,what really is the difference? i'm only prolly going to x-fire 2x so dont really think im gonna use all of the 3 lanes. Is there really any difference between the two that makes one outshine the other?

the front pcb board of the haf x had long pins that dug thru the wiring insulation of the fan led switch which shorted the motherboard I had, is it safe to hot glue over the pins or will that just turn the case into a brick that cant be turned on/off? Does hot glueing the pins that dot the circuit board cause the board in the case that takes charge of on/off,reset and fan led switch and front usb/firewire ports to become unresponsive?

Hot gluing the pins should not in any way make them unresponsive, just make sure to do it in an amount that isn't overkill.

I really don't think there is much difference between the two boards, maybe one here and there but ultimately I would choose which color scheme would look better with your rig.

Both are very well laid out, so no issues there. Both OC pretty well, check.

I wish I had your problem, most times people are worried about cost. So I would love to have your problem man!

Ive have both of these boards, the rampage 3 formula is a better mobo imo. It has tons more bios options if you overclock. I have an i7 950 and a sapphire reference 5870, the only issue i had was the northbridge was getting hot, but an antec spotcool fan keeps the temps within range.

Go with rampage3 formula.
It has lot of overclocking features.

i had both, and the rampage is a better board, but i had the R3E not the R3F.

I ended up returning both and kept my X58A-UD5.
