    I think the MSI 750i board is getting better review, tohugh I don't have time to dig up the reviews right now. ;)

    I have a spot explanation. The 750i SLI northbridge gets extremely hot at load. While MSI has the better chipset cooling technology, ASUS used just a fairly big anodised aluminum heatsink. But what's new is that ASUS has started to bundle a chipset fan with the current stocks of P7N-D SLI. So the active cooled 750i SLI should perform on par with the MSI board. Though yes, I've heard people say that the MSI P7N SLI Platinum overclocks better than some 780i SLI boards.

    I have a B3 Q6600 that I will be selling along with 4GB (2x2GB) of DDR2-1066 of Transcend RAM if you would like them. RAM is only two weeks old and has been used at stock the great majority of the time. Q6600 ive been using since August of last year up until the other day.
