MSI P67A-GD65, Hmm I might choose that instead of P8P67 Pro

I dont really use FPA headers so hopefully it wont be an issue. (they have bad placement for SLI)

If you want, I'll let you know my impressions of it when I get my hands on it.

It's one of the cheaper P67s and the only thing I found it lacked was the tri-sli and dual network adapters. I have no need for 3 PCI Ex 16x slots and I think network sharing is a crock as I never noticed any difference on my current motherboard.

If those things are important to you, wait for the MSI P67A-GD80.

Yes please, I still have a while before I can actually buy a board.

just read this
"The MSI P67A-GD65 is a 6+2 phase and poor match for any 'K' CPU, and the vanilla ASUS P8P67 is 12+2 phase."

Oh and I also have an Intel 510 120GB SSD (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820167042) coming in as well. :)

Yes I know the Vertex 3 is a bit faster, but the 120 wasn't in stock and I didn't want to put my build on hold waiting for it.

I don't consider it to be extreme. There are CPUs that cost three times as much, motherboards that cost twice as much, ram that is more costly and clocks faster, and 580/590 GPUs. I consider it to be on the low side of a high end system.

I'll try to get the pics in. I'm terrible at wiring for airflow so the inside will probably resemble a rat's nest. :o

i am too, but just route whatever you can behind the motherboard, and everything else should kindda be bundled together. it'll look awesome :D

Sending back the MSI motherboard. The board felt cheap and I've had multiple problems with it and my SLI setup. Overclocking was ok, but I fully expected better with the H70 setup.

I've decided to go with the ASUS Revolution (http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/P8P67_WS_Revolution/) mobo instead. Wish me luck.
