Default mATX board for gamers?!?!

Asus P5E-MV. Looks decent, although I would like to see a review where they test it's Overclocking abilities! This would go really well in that nice NZXT Rogue case!

I can imagine, I had a P35-DS3P and it was amazing overclocking my quad. Just don't quite like the look, so much orange and purple.....
