The UNIFY is awesome too, should be cheaper. Is that in stock where you shop? Way back when, a wise man told me never skimp on the mobo. I took it too heart and bought a Maxmius XII Hero for my son, only to run a 6 core 10400. Although I'm searching for another 10900k. If I find one, I'll pick between the one I have now and the new, put the one that doesn't overclock as good in my son's machine.
