    I do like the premise of these TUF boards. The only problem is I just hate the colour scheme ... I wish they would do like a TUF board just in black. I know the colours are suppose to look "military" because the components are "military graded". But come on this think is going to look totally out of place in a highend lian li or silverstone chasis and yet it is a high-mid range motherboard, with a colour scheme totally out of sink with mid-high parts.

    the cynic in me thinks that Nvidia is letting SLI be allowed to get some revenue back given the kicking they have been getting.

    The realist in me agrees with you there. Nvidia have been shooting themselves in the foot for yours over the SLI thing and AMD.

    Now just have to decide if its aTuff board or a crosshair rog board

    Yes, but unless you have a windowed case who cares?

    I like it, but I'm not hopeful the CPUs will be good enough to spend money on premium motherboards to go with them.

    Unfortunately, this thread is about the Sabretooth motherboard, not a wild (and extinct) mammal that your friends might like to eat. But welcome to Hexus - definitive technology news and reviews. What kind of computer do you have?
