Yeah, I saw a review of the Deluxe MB ... on AnandTech I think ... but the WS model is a much better board. ASUS says the ROG version Maximus V is the flagship, but I disagree. I think they're saying that because it's more directed to the general market than the WS model, which is marketed to businesses and professionals. The ROG board has more features on the sound side, and a few other things, like wlan, but lacks the features that matters most (I think): four-way SLI/Crossfire at full speed, and solid overclock support in hardware.
