i have ordered a asus p6t se...
but according to Asus webpage the P6T se version does not have 100% japanese capacitors. The non SE Asus P6T does...
im thinking about cancelling the SE and get the p6t instead, its 40 dollar more..
what do you think?

ive head leaking capacitors before with a Abit motherboard..
i want this motherboard to last me at least 5 years, maybe overclock a i7 920 to 3.33 ghz..

If you Need good motherboard for OC & Longlife means go for Gigabyte! It has the Japanese Capacitors!
Gigabyte rocks!
It includes USB 3.0 also!

i dont think you need to worry alot unless you plan to keep your mobo for 5+ years(that means youre not a gamer/encoder,but if you arent why the hell are you buying a s1336 mobo anyway?)

In all seriousness,if you plan on spending 40$ more you have 2 choices: Spend them at the GPU(best solution unless you already have a beast like 5870) or buy P6t and get a better overclocking potential and perhaps 1 or 2 years more product life compared to p6t se.

Or if you simply dont mind the extra p6t feaures(excluding the better capacitors) you can keep the $40 and spend it on beer :D  .
