I was waiting for the review of this.

Awesome looking board and the northbridge looks epic.

Not a bad looking board. That heatsink is strangeness personified though. Why produce a board that is unlikely to handle the huge heatsinks most people use? Very odd choice.

Like the colour scheme though. As those who've seen my profile can attest lol.

Quite a steep price for such an average overclock. The Bloodrage is only 30 quid more.

This has 6 RAM slots while Bloodrage has only 3.

24GB anyone?

Nice review m8.

Couple of questions for you:

The CPU-Z screeny shows 1.216v. Was this max Vcore you used?

What was the Vdrop/droop like?

Horses for courses I think. The bloodrage is targeted to a different audience (hardcore benchers) whereas the renaissance is more a workstation based platform.
