I hope at least one of their mATX boards has VRM cooling or my plans for a decent OC are out the window

They probably will. Asus would just add in a sister board to make room like they have in the past. Should be fine bud

I've always loved Crosshair boards. So much cheaper than the Intel equivalent too. The last one was like £160 and that was like top top end (8+2+2).

This looks fab !

Whoah ! 8 + 4 pin. **** just got real !

Alien, Crosshair boards are only for AMD right? Or I thought so. Didn't think they had it for Intel. I don't follow the motherboard brands much
