    Though reviews praise it highly just wondring that this has no USB 3 or SATA 3.

    You talkin' 'bout this: http://www.cellbazaar.com/web/item-d...fsort%2f0.aspx
    This is one hell-of-a board! It has got mostly hand-picked components and some of the best overcloking options. Then there is a Creative Xi-Fi totally free. The cooling of this board simply rocks. I have read countless reviews about this board and I could find hardly one that talks negative about it (except maybe the price:S). I have also seen video reviews. Who cares about USB 3 and SATA 6Gb/s when you got a top of the edge sound card and good overclocking options? You can get these two missing features anytime later with a PCI-Express add-on card. UCC will bring these cards pretty soon. I have talked with them.

    I recommend you to read few more reviews and then take the decision. Chances like this in Bd rarely comes. Do not miss it, I say.

    Well - yes Nosalis that is the 1. Thanx.

    I have read a few reviews too. This board is pricey yet one of the reviews I read concluded that this was not spectacular for all the hype (bit tech). The other one said (overclockers.net) that @ stock it is isn't much - it does well when oc-ed. Then again, the OC performance is not anything that other boards of a lower price won't match. It has a free PCI express sound card - yes. A good lay-out, yes. Cooling, yes. Accessories, yes. some unique OC features, yes. But I am not convinced it is something really out of the park.

    Ryans has it on for 19k.

    The ROG stands for REPUBLIC OF GAMERS.

    This board surely has potential ONLY if u have the proper hardware. Which means even though the MB is OC friendly ull be needing a good cooling solution + Good ram +Good casing and most importantly good PSU.

    now if u r into Ocing then think yourself how far would you go.

    Because, most MB (such as gigabyte P55 based MB) easily allow medicore overclock out of the box while offering decent features such as USB3 Sata 3. etc. with a decent price tag.

    Yes of course that is correct. That is actually OC-ing 101. Rickshaw-r body tey jet engine lagai to laabh nai, tai na? lollz.
    The reviews I read do not claim it is unquestionably out of this world. At that price point, other boards can provide similar experience. One review testing took the board to 4 ghz on air; other boards will do 3.7¬3.8 on air with the same hardware. Other than some shiny lay-out, some OC features and a free X-fi card that is slightly better than on-board audio, I don't think this board is much worthy.

    Not bashing Coldfire - just that I have seen my share of links that look ad-ware-y. Wud u click on sth like that? It is not Coldfire's fault. If that is Global's link mayb they shud reflect on that.
    Coldfire - I did click on that link and the link failed. Jai na!

    >Not clicking shortened links.
    They're quite common now, if it's too good to be true, close the tab.
    Not that hard to do.
