    Seems like these boards have issues...
    Bad slot placement (limited room)
    Trouble reading RAM
    no wifi
    no worth the cost

    ...and the journey continues for the right board.

    A common problem regardless of manufacturer
    Can't say that it's something I've heard in conjunction with either board. Just what RAM kits/manufacturers are supposedly problematic ?
    Yeah, good luck with that. Here's a list of X58 boards with onboard WiFi:



    If you're seriously interested in getting a decently laid out board at a reasonable price (as opposed to just trashing Asus) then this would be worth looking at. Failing that, lower your sights to LGA1155 or an AM3 offering.
    A regular Marco Polo. If you're looking for a perfect board that's also inexpensive I think your "journey" is likely to take somewhere between "a very very long time" and "a very very very long time". Why would a maunufacturer sell the perfect board cheaply and cannibalize sales of any enthusiast offerings?

    Wasn't trying to trash anything, just trying to find the right board, price isn't too much of a concern...my build will likely be around $1300

    How about you start a thread and post what you have in mind for your build.
