My System Specs

Default EVGA X58 FTW3 VS EVGA X58 SLI

Sadly it seems as though reviews of the mid level hardware are lowering in numbers, While we can Read 100 Reviews on the X58 Classifieds / Rampage III's etc We can't seem to find information on the Mid Level gear.

I am planning on building a new computer soon (ordering this week or next) and I am trying to find out which motherboard to get. So far my specs are as follows:

Corsair HX850W (Psu)
Corsair Dominator 6gb DDR3-1600
2x EVGA 460 SuperClocked (EE)
Intel i7 930
Lian Li PC-60FNWX
(HDD's and Blu-Ray are comming out of my Old PC)

I plan to put a small OC, nothing too big and Air cool it with a Noctua D12

While I can find reviews on the X58 SLI, I can't seem to find anything other then a Preview on the X58 FTW3. I had originally planned to put the FTW3 Mobo in, but I am now stuck between that and the X58SLI. If anyone has used either board I would love some input. While, I understand the X58SLI is more then sufficient for my needs as I do not plan any huge OC's I just want to know how the support, and how the board overall performs.

(I really miss seeing mid level reviews, seems like only yesterday that if a piece of hardware would be even semi popular it had more reviewers then purchasers, now, not so much)

Any information would be greatly appreciated
