Asus rampage or the EVGA are both solid well built high quality boards and both will suit you down to the ground

I have heard good things about the EVGA Classified.

Also, for overclocking, please ONLY use the BIOS! Software overclocking is NOT reliable at all.

Out of those choices I'd pick the EVGA classified. Alternatively any EVGA x58 3xSLI will get similar performance, and save you money.

Other decent boards I like are the ASUS P6T, Foxconn Bloodrage (original not GTI) , and the Rampage II Gene (mATX). All of which will get your i7 920 D0 to 4Ghz without breaking a sweat.

So far EVGA seems to be the most popular and pulling ahead of the others. Thanks guys.

Surprised no one has said nothing about the Rampage III, hm.. guess not much interest.

I highly reccommend EVGA, they make great boards and have the best customer service I have ever dealt with (beside newegg)

Yeah I just had a question regarding my evga mainboard, and they got back to me early this morning, when I sent the question late last night. The response was very clear and helpful.

i honestly suggest the Asus Rampager 3 Asus has very good reliability record.. and a makes very good computer parts... i personally have had them in my family forever.. not just my dads side.. my moms side.. my uncle be a Computer IT and you wouldnt belive the amount of Asus boards he has had... he has an intel Pentium 2 Board! however EVGA sounds good if you think you like it more..
