When it comes to 1155/1150 you don't need these higher priced boards, the mid range ones are plenty good.
The high end ones will just let you push the OC that little bit further, as in a couple of hundred mhz.

Asus has defo dropped the ball on this one though, the top MSI and Giga boards, even though are just as expensive, do actually offer that bit extra for the money. Even if it's not that much over the mid range ones, they do still offer that bit more.

Asus have lost their way with their 1150 boards, first the nasty black and gold boards and now this. They need to pull it back for the next lot of motherboards for Haswell-E and Broadwell next year.

Hope this doesn't turn into another NZXT situation
