-E has slightly better cooling (more copper) 2nd NIC port, eSATA, adds PCI-e 4x instead of singles. -E also supports 16gb RAM, which the Pro doesnt support offically.

as in "over heating issues"

no boards have that unless u are OCing....

As far as CF the E has the Sata ports at the edge out of the way of the cards which works fine (Workstation has the Deluxe which worked w/ 2 9800GTX+s)

but..something like 9800GTX+ will cover the ports right??im talking abt the red sata ports...not the yellow ones....anyways..think ill have to forget about nvidia vga's if its for the P5Q-E...(that 10.5 inch card is gonna completely cover those....)..using right angled sata cables will do the job or what??

both boards should be fine. The P5Q-E's are turned so they dont face up and the Pros are towards the bottom which look clear of a dual slot cooler of a second card
