My System Specs

Default Need some help on this choice

So I can buy either the Evga x58 sli le motherboard or the 3xsli mobo, but i don't know which to get. I can get them for roughly the same price so price is not a concern here.

The only features that i notice that these boards dont share is that the 3xsli has only 3 pcie slots while the LE has 4, and that the 3xsli has a lot more cooling while the LE is fanless, is this due to that the 3xsli has the N200 chip or whatever it was called.

The problem is that i can not find any formal review on the LE motherboard so that is why I'm asking you guys all i want is the board that overclocks the most. And also what is the difference between the two 3xsli boards beside the life time warranty that the A1 version has.

Help would be very much appreciated

Here on the links from NCIX:

I hope your not set on an EVGA board because ASUS makes a superior board. The EVGA board doesn't review nearly as well as the ASUS board I was looking at.

EVGA

ASUS

The ASUS is a better overclocker and has 3 FULL 16x PCI-E lanes for A full SLI experience.

You got your A1 and TR mixed up

I would just pick the TR or A1 model since they support higher ram ratings.
