Depends are you over clocking and whats your processor, what will you be using your computer for?

Any plan's for SLI (multiple GPUs)? Even if so, unless planning more than 2 GPUs or have a need for the extra SATA and USB ports or have plans to use liquid cooling for the mobo (on the Formula) may just want to look at the Asus Maximus Hero, great mobo

you do realize every single board will overclock exactly the same right? there isnt even a point of the scamtooth or ROG boards other than if you want the colour or not

Sorry, but no, every mobo will not OC the same, far from it....there are a number of factors that play in to OCing. I routinely test new CPUs in my rigs and often put my CPUs in others and the difference can vary widely in the OC you can achieve (both overall OC as well as stable OCs).....

I have to agree with him your "scamtooth" will over clock far beyond what an Evo could hope to overclock, the difference is that your "scamtooth" has better heat evaporation then the EVO, which allows it to further overclock, also as you overclock more and more if your going to be running a higher speed of ram.

you are CPU limited before you are ever motherboard limited especially for haswell. the differences will be minimal (a 100mhz gain is never worth doubling the price). this does not factor in unrealistic usage scenarios such as LN2

if you were talking about ivy bridge, you are talking about within 200mhz tops and the farther back you go, the bigger the difference.

I'm talking 775, SB, IB, Haswell, AMD, etc in general as prices go up theirs better heat features, voltage features, cooling features, BIOS options etc.......all these features add together to provide better stability at higher OCs....
