Yup. The board looks great, but I just can't stand the Fatal1ty branding that comes along with it =(

Yeah, it is definitely excessive and I could do without it, but it's not a big make or break type of thing to me. I've heard the Biostars are decent boards so you can give that a shot also.

Heh, I WISH I were less picky like you, but sadly I'm not T.T

I'll go read some reviews on the Biostar and hopefully be able to order it soon.

BTW, mind sharing what parts you're going to order for your new build?

Mine:

i5 2500k
Biostart TP67XE (looking like it atm)
4GB DDR3 1866mhz Corsair Dominator GT
GTX 470 (already own)

That's right. Just ignore all the snide remarks about how tacky the fatal1ty logo or his face on the UEFI. Can't go wrong with multi gpu support, 10 sata ports and 16+2 phase on an affordable price. Plus it matches your scheme.

TP67XE is great value board. Read some crazy overclock with that. Although if you plan to SLI in the future, I don't think it's supported. Crossfire's fine though.

I don't think I'm going to SLI or XFire.

Is Biostar a reliable brand?

I'm a bit worried because of how low the price is for an "Extreme" edition board, yknow?

Biostar's a great mobo manufacturer. Back in the days of P965, their board was on the top of overclocker's wishlist if I remember correctly. I'd rank them with DFI (RIP) and Abit (RIP)

Yeah the board is cheap coz they aren't selling a brandname, just your everyday P67 workhorse. But it has USB 3.0, Sata 3, debug LED and solid caps. Plus a 3 year warranty to soothe your nerves

Okay, I've limited it down to Biostar TP67XE or Asus Sabertooth.

Between the two, which would you guys go with an why?

Maybe some inputs might help me make my decision.

^Go for the Sabertooth if you have the budget for it. The armor looks awesome.
