I'm struggling to find a difference between these two motherboards - can someone give me a rundown?

Thanks :)

  1. Best answer
    The LE lacks heatsinks on its VRM and has a 4-pin CPU connector (instead of the vanilla's 8-pin). The LE isn't recommended for overclocking.
  2. If you add your own heatsinks, and use a beefy power supply, the le version works just as well as the non le version for overclocking.
