okay, well I have finally narrowed it down to: EVGA X58 Classified 4-Way SLI
The reason i decided to go with this motherboard was that I have had EVGA products before, but the main thing was that the ASUS board was CEB instead of ATX, also I will get a USB 3 add in card for the motherboard, so I will have USB 3 that available. What also made me doubt the ASUS board was some bad reviews and complains that people have been making, so I would rather have the peace of mind.
One thing I am considering for my new build is water cooling which is a new concept for me, so all I do plan on water cooling is the CPU.
So I was looking at the CORSAIR Hydro H70 for CPU cooling. There are good reviews on the web about it, but I am uncertain about waterccooling since that is new territory.
