Default EVGA X58 SLI Classified Motherboard

Do you guys think I should buy the EVGA X58 SLI Classified Motherboard or go with other motherboards? I don't think I am going to water cool my build.

There is only a $40-$60 difference between those two that's what is giving me a hard time to choose.

If it were me and I had the money to get the classified I would get it. If it's only a $40-$60 difference then yeah get the classified.

Today, I ordered a EVGA X58 Classified and 2x XFX 5870. Decided not to water cool since I will have the GPUs for 1 month or less.
