    I ask forgiveness

    I did a terrible thing this morning, I order a motherboard, not a ROG one. I'm so sorry.

    Not bad.....I also order a Quattro 5000 and a i7-3930K ..... this will be a sick WS .... I choose that board because I may add a Telsa GPU too.

    WS boards can make great 24/7 rigs and usually OC quite nicely, too. I have not tried the X79 one mind. Will be dealing more with WS this year.

    I have used ASUS since 1995 and it's the only boards I use or will use for me or people I build a PC for.

    Looks like a nice board! WS boards are well built (usually), and the SSD caching might be really nice.
    I am disturbed because I cannot break my system...found out there were others trying to cope! We have a support group on here, if your system will not break, please join!

    aside of the Intel serie 520 240 GB that I will use for the OS, I have 2 x Intel 40 gb for the caching of the 2 mecanical drives, this is one of the reasons I choose that board. This will be my first single CPU WS since 2000, the 3 last one has 2 x xeons

    Brother ... the only thing not ROG about that board is the colors .. I read . a review .. by one of our most trusted ..
    and well even outside the ROG community most respected .. cuz the boy just wont lay down for anybody or anything
    say this by far is one of the most impressive boards he has ever reviewed .. and at the time he reviewed the entire line.
    You certainly have nothing to ... hahhaha ... i get it .. it was a joke ... funny guy. (I knew it all along) btw .. that reviewer
    was our very own Kipper .... says it all, don't it. [[..and then the nod from Raja .. come on, your golden.)
    Best of the Best brother, Always.c.

    Tesla's are crazy fast...and insanely expensive...stink at gaming too. They are built for GPGPU computations, and not for gaming, since they don't have all the Geforce driver optimizations and specialized hardware. If you want to do folding or something like that, the Tesla will be crazy fast, but for gaming, get a Geforce card.
