*$153 GA-H57M-USB3 http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/Motherboard/Products_Spec.aspx?ProductID=3307
*$162 P7H55D-M EVO http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=LZtx6p7WKTP77rsk&templete=2

Trying to decide between these two...
It's for a MythTV BE+FE + Boxee + XBMC, & maybe a NAS.

Based on Anand's articles & some correspondence w/the author....

The two Asus boards are better geared for more serious CPU OC's.
But the GA-H55M-USB3 has a slight edge for memory OC/timing...

Have any of you had experience with one or both?
Ideally with one of the G.Skill 2x 2G DD3-1600Mhz! (I think I'm settled on the Eco CL7)

What more do you need? Pick the one that best meets your requirements based on part 2 of the article. I'd buy memory that's been successfully tested with 4 modules on the selected motherboard.

Not as simple as it seems on face value....
Never-mind, I'm stepping through it with someone who's been amazingly grateful with his/her time.

Best.
