    EVGA motherboards any good?

    So I plan to switch to X99 soon and so far my favorite board for price and features is the EVGA X99 FTW however I've read a lot of very negative feedback about EVGA motherboards so I'm wondering if I should buy it now or just wait to buy a different brand like Gigabyte or Asus.

    New Rampage IV Extreme BIOS doesn't allow CPU strap and multiplier OC.

    On the very first RIVE BIOS I ran 40x125mhz to get 5Ghz at lower voltage than 50x100mhz but on the newest BIOS when I set 125mhz CPU strap I can set whatever multiplier I want and it reverts to 36 by the time I log into windows and open up CPU-z. This really annoying since 5Ghz using 50x100mhz...
