Arg! Overspend! Overspend! Are you just buying stuff because you can? I guess if you can afford it, go ahead, but you could pay a lot less and lose almost nothing.

Oh, and you need a fan for that heat sink.

You might as well throw a few more in to mount on the case.

Brand new, untested equipment = much , rubbish BIOS, ridiculous price etc. etc.

I take it your refering to the maximus? Its not untested, ASUS Maximus Formula SE - XtremeSystems Forums

These guys pushed this MB to the abosolute limits and it has worked magically. Yes is it a bit expensice, but a mere 30$ more then my second choice, the P5K deluxe. How do you know the BIOS is rubbish? have you tested it yet?

Btw what do you mean i need a fan for the heatsink? I thought it had one installed in it :S I am also planning on loading the case with fans, thats a given.

Looks good. I also prefer the look of the G11 over the saitek.
