Thank you - very useful leading up to deciding on my upgrade.

Time allowing, it would be very useful to add scores / bottom line quote against each but again, very useful resource as it is...

Going to take some time reading through the reviews but initially I'm very interested in Gigabyte UD5H Wifi or Asrock Extreme6.

That's a great review, I'll add it to the rest at the top. :)

I'm not so sure that the dutch review is that good to be honest. I'm struggling to see what it actually tells me. The differences between the boards are very small. In order to be able to decipher whether there is any statistical significance between these tiny differences you would test a sample of hundreds of boards from each make and model in the same setup and collate the results.

A more useful set of tests would have been the CPU overclocking capabilities using the same CPU and also memory OC capabilities + voltage stability.

As it stands, this wouldn't help me choose a board at all. I'd still go by the features of the specific make/model which I would find useful and balance that with price and previous experience with manufacturer.

Useful thread! Shame the CPUs aren't out too as the reviews can't be fully conclusive until these come out. And the fact I want to upgrade now...
