Default EVGA E758 owners

How do you guys like the board? I managed to pick up a trade for a Bloodrage which I'm totally considering. Haven't had a chance to use my board yet since I don't have the rest of my parts. Which would you guys choose Bloodrage? EVGA? I'm leaning towards the Bloodrage right now and it's still being supported so....

Yea, I'm basically seeing mixed reviews. Some people swear by the BR and others by EVGA.

The Bloodrage isn't even in the same class. It doesn't surprise me that someone wants to trade you, it's a win for them, but not for you. Stick to the EVGA or look for a Asus mobo.

How did you know I was going water?

I'm still on the fence. I'll have to do some more research. I have until Sat. to decide anyways.
