    Rampage V Extreme (u3.1) vs Sabertooth (X99)

    So I got hold of a 5930K for a decent price and some 2400Mhz TeamGroup Ram.

    Now I need to find a motherboard.

    So Current leanings are between the Rampage V and Sabertooth X99

    Reasons for each;

    Rampage:
    Pro's
    More USB3 ports/sata ports/PCI-E ports
    Better OC tools (Bios button etc)
    Better Mosfet Cooling (I will be OCing quite a bit)
    4x PCI-E slots
    Apparantly better sound - but am told it isnt as good as it sounds?
    Wifi/Bluetooth Support (handy but not essential for me)


    Cons
    More Expensive
    No Dust Caps
    Less "durable" than the TUF ones.
    And a lot of gimmicks I probably wont use.

    Sabertooth
    Pro's
    Dust Caps
    More Reliable
    Significantly Cheaper

    Cons
    Lacks some PCI-E Slots and USB Slots

    So what are proples thoughts on these 2?

    Regards

    They're both flagship boards so it's not an obvious choice between them. If you're really intent on pushing the OC, then Rampage V was designed more with that in mind, and has a lot of OC-specific features. However, if you check the reviews of the TUF you'll see it can match the R5E on its day.

    The only things that I noticed you didn't mention is that the USB 3.1 is integrated on the Sabertooth, and it's an add-in card on the R5E; and the Sabertooth supports 3-way SLI whilst the R5E supports 4-way SLI.
