mmm, its not 100% on that board but ive been able to get the best power savings on asus boards, but im thinking of expanding to multiple raid cards in the long term future and my GF has expressed interest in the possibility of multi tuner cards sometime (next year i guess? @[email protected] ) , so was looking for a board with lots of options and possibilities
