im looking to build an i7 1156 system soon and cant decide between the maximus 3 board or the EVGA *** board , both boards have the features i need and the colour scheme im after so it just comes down to overclocking really , CPU will be an 860 with probably a TRUE 120 on it when a bracket comes out

which one seems to be the better contender

many thanks

Have a look at my EVGA thread here. Tbh I think either would be a great choice, and I'm sure that both boards would give you great overclocking results. I will be updating my thread this weekend after some more tweaking, keep your eye out. :)
