OC3D Review: Asus Striker II Formula 780i Socket 775 Motherboard

"Armed with Nvidia's 780i chipset the latest addition to Asus' ROG series looks like it could well hit the spot. But can it keep up with the beastly Intel P35 and X38 chipsets?"

Nice review, shame it doesn't oc well. And the chipset coolers don't look pretty.. Kind of last minute job?

Cheers guys. Yeah the cooling isn't the best looking or performing tbh.

I hear there's an Extreme version on the way tho (DDR3). So it'll be interesting to see if anything changes.

Yeah quality review mate...

I'm pretty disappointed with this too to be honest. For £220 and to fall behind the Maximus I know which board I'd choose.

Most useful review ever read!

I have to have hats off to Jim because early monday morning the day I was going to order myself the Striker II he PMed me with a little infomation on the board.

I am thankful that he did because I nearly wasted 200quid.

My new fave motherboard is the Maximus and will be with me by the end of the week!

Amazing review and you're great guy, JImbo!
