    obvious sb features aside(which 1/2 of them are negated since i run a pcie raid card); are these boards worth investing in? Do they offer any advanced features one would notice in OC or system performance over the 790fx? Or should i just wait for the bulldozer chips to get one?

    Memory clocking is better, for sure, even with C3 chips, but it questionable whether that's enough to warrant an upgrade from 790FX.

    Heck, I just want a red/black AMD mobo, so that's reason enough for me!:laugh:

    USB 3 and Sata 3 6G/bs I beleive. Some say they will run cooler but I cant verify that.

    i must admit if an open box ga ud7 comes along; i will be tempted since it is already liquid capable.
