Asus p9X79 vs P9X79 LE

Can someone help me with the difference between these two -- the cost difference is very slight - about $15 after shipping for the LE, the non-LE is free shipping ($225 + $9 = $234 LE) vs. $247 for the non-LE. Aside from some usb 3.0 differences I can't tell what's going on.

Which one is more easily overclocked (light overclocking - 4930k up to say 4.0Ghz)? As in more easy to do, not ability of the board.

Which one is easier to flash bios, which I understand I will need to do for this proc. Or are they the same.

Any pros/cons for either one?

Thank you!

Very little a different LAN Chipset and the Non-LE has 4 USB 3.0 Ports and the LE version only has 2 USB 3.0 Ports. That is about it

Almost everything in same on both boards except few differences. LE board have 4 USB 3.0 ports. 2 at back and 2 at mid board. mid board ports can be used for front usb ports in the casing. It's some advantage comparing to non LE board. But I really can't see why non LE board is expensive than the other. By the way what does LE stands for?

Check the image at the bottom of this page. You can see usb 3.0 ports
