Nice board and nice review Frank, but you may want to include the Striker II Extreme in the comparison motherboard section, not only in the graphs :)

Seriously, big credit goes out to King for maintaining this list. He puts a lot of work into this thing and he deserves our thanks! - Verran

Thank you SO much for this detailed and extremely balanced and fair review. To my knowledge, this is the first review of the motherboard. I now must decide between this and an ASUS Rampage Extreme. I will deeply appriciate any recommendations.

Again, thank you for your time and effort on our behalf.

The Asus Rampage extreme is ridiculously overpriced. I would just stick with the 790i FTW.
