This looks nice and without the beige tinges



Probably more expensive than the Strix board. I hope that Tom reviews both.

I really like Mark 2. It discrete. Silent but violent.

Agreed and they usually OC just as good don't they? What pricing segment do they usually fall in compared with the other boards? It might be a contender for me if the price and OC capabilities are right.

And best of all...no "gaming" on it!!!

Oh yeah! They were on pair as RAMPAGE EXTREME all the time before. And the blessing of not having GAMING on it is worth the money alone.

That may be just a bit too much on the old bank account for me then.

That TUF is a really nice looking board. I prefer it to the Strix.

I like both this iteration, but the TUF looks more inconspicuous which I like. I'd hate it to be really expensive. You don't see many TUF boards in builds do you? How's the audio on these boards? Same chip and quality as on Strix models?

Solid audio is pretty much a given at this point in most motherboards. And as always if you want higher-end audio you're still better off with an external unit.
