Default Which board would you choose?

Like the title says, which one do you think would be better for 24/7 folding (e8500, 2x EVGA 9600GSO), Asus P5Q Pro or EVGA 750i SLI ? Both boards are brand spanking new. I'm folding with one and probably selling the other. I've never overclocked but I intend to give it a try but nothing too drastic. Thanks for your input.

I don't have experience with the 750i, but I do know the P5Q Pro is a nice and stable board :)

I'll second that if its going to be folding 24/7, it will also operate much cooler than the 750i

Yeah that's what I was thinking too. If I was going to SLI and game alot I would keep the EVGA board but I'm not a huge gamer. So looks like P5Q Pro will be folding and EVGA 750i SLI will be up for sale soon. Thanks for your input guys.
