Wow that is one hell of a board lol.

 

I am a bit biased towards maximus boards as i have great experiences with them, so i didn't expect anything less from ASUS.


You can get the weeny out of the war, but you cannot get the war out of the weeny

Rest in peace my good old gtx 480, you deserved it

 

Thinks he has a weeny worthy of war.

The improvements in the software and usability are awesome. I have a couple of NON ROG boards to look at and they look to offer a ton of new features as well.

I have always been an ROG fan. 

 

I don't have any tattoos, but I might just have start off with a nice ROG tattoo somewhere...  :whistling:
