    So little difference in score between all the mobos listed. I just wonder that these 'premium' mobos are overkill for almost everyone.
    I have a Z87 MSI Gaming MOBO, wasn't much but I still OC'd my 4690k and the current cheapo Pentium I have to 4.5ghz.
    I really can't see the point in all but a few extreme cases to spend this much.
    Much better to get a decent £80-£120 board and spend the saved £130-£150 on a far better graphics card than the one you had money left for after buying this.

    Also that back panel...as Millhouse once said about the Waterworld video game...WHAT A RIP!

    The link on page 2 (test setup) for the i7-6700K actually points to the i5-6600K on OC's website.

    Mainboard manufacturers seem to be stuck in a saturation bombing of the market mode, you could easily remove 75% of mainboard models from the market without anyone missing out.

    Agreed Anfield, I've had mobo fatigue for a while now, outside of the initial emotional purchase of a new computer build, they are all very much similar.

    You've rated this 20% but given it an Extreme badge? I thought the percentage scoring had been retired?

    I can't see a percentage rating anywhere...
