Seriously, the only thing i see better about that board is it's got VRM cooling and it looks super cool. Correct me if I'm wrong though.

if you're planning on OCing, an unheatsinked 4+1 phase board is taking a risk.

edit: then again, a 95W cpu, you'll probably be ok.

spend the extra couple of bucks and save the headache of having to RMA a board that blew up on you! Its a much better idea.

I CAN spend a couple of bucks, but ehh.
There's more features on that Gigabyte board, plus, it's Gigabyte.
Can't I just BUY a Mosfet heatsink?
