While the performance of Core i7 compared to the Core 2 processor has already been proven, it's still too soon to say if Core i7 will take off like a screaming rocket or if it will take some time before it's adopted. Core i7 is also one of those processors that requires a degree in rocket science to overclock; similar to Phenom. There are too many buses and dividers making this system work, but it's still too soon to say if Core i7 has topped out in bus clocking or if it will go harder.
On that note, we have to give the ASUS board a huge rap; it's extremely feature rich, has a reasonable overclock on offer at this early stage and with CrossfireX and SLI graphics support, there is something here for everyone.
