Hey guys, open discussion here x), what do you guys think on these selection of motherboards?
I just got curious on the board for the 1366 socket. What would you go for? Which one beats which?
Pretty much just wanna know what you guys would go for and why xD :lol: 
Lol, all 3 of them look so pretty to me x) I just wanna buy em all lol :pt1cable: 

LGA 1366 Boards

I also found these two 1156 boards, wondering is any of you guys have any good (or bad) opinions on these boards. I might have to build an 1156 setup for my family back at home xD.

In my Opinion (probably speak for jaquith too :)  ). I would go with the EVGA for the LGA 1156 board and the EVGA Classified 3 (141-GT-E770-A1) for the LGA 1366 board out of your list. In truth though, I won't get any of them as they would be out of my wanted price range outside. :) 

These two board are the superior for Nvidia GPU's and are highly overclockable boards. EVGA focuses only on Intel and makes outstanding boards.

Lol, definitely, i like EVGA's boards xD. Not to mention their limited lifetime warranty lol.

However, and maybe i'm reading or seeing something wrong here, but according to evga's website the classified 3 (linky hurr~) supports 3-way + Physx. But when i look at the pcie slots, i see the last two too close together - wouldn't that last one dissapear with the 3rd card in SLi? So then where's the "+ Physx"? lol.

And i also really like that Asus extreme too - i debate which is better between that one and the classified 3. I've always trusted Asus, as well as EVGA lol.

This is how you would set it up, with the PhysX card in the third slot...

^ Yes.

"This motherboard contains eight (8) USB 2.0 ports that are exposed on the rear panel of the chassis (Figure 2). The motherboard also contains two 10-pin internal header connectors onboard that can be used to connect an optional external bracket containing two (2) USB 2.0 ports."

evga *nom nom nom*

OH really? what are the settings @ for the GTX 470's?

Wow, $6k. spare some change for a poor fellow? xD
I figured a 980x build would cost me about $5k. Tho i never planned on water cooling tho. But if i go 3-way SLi, well there ain't gonna be much cooling =P.

I'm thinking of going water cooling. Still iffy, but it would help with the OC'ing. I'm just waiting to see what NVIDIA comes out with next lol. They wanted to come out with what was a 5xx series fermi card or something?

The price included ALL components {incl 3 ASUS VW246H @ $230 X 3 = $690, OS, all Koolance blocks/tubing/rad/couplings/etc} it adds up fast.

I use MSI Afterburner to OC, and keep in mind they're on water. Current 7/24 OC 1080mv, core 800, shader 1600, memory 1800 - and they can be easily pushed beyond that when needed.

gah!! 3 monitors! yey! xD I got one so far xP - need two more T-T :lol:  but i see - i guess i'll need that extra $1k then xD

Hey i use that too lol - except my card's a EVGA..and i can't OC my mv even though i tried. And i'm sure yours can OC past that easily xD i've pushed mine to 850/1800 - temps get a little toasty (60c?) but it's on air lol.

I haven't really worked much with water cooling though. I'm planning on doing some experiments with it tho xD. Got any tips or advice?
