    I think there will be very few people here with access to both mobos in order to make a direct comparison in the way that hardocp will have done.
    Whatever the board manufacturer's claim, the proof is in the pudding and performance can only be compared when both boards are tested in identical setups, thus we rely on sites such as anandtech, hardocp, tom's hardware et al.
    if your font size is this small i'll add you to my ignore list because you're wasting my time, OK?

    the ic7 is a 875 chipset and mines a 865. not much difference, since most of the reviews say that this board performs the same if not better than 875's with pat enabled

    Keep your mobo, unless you are going to get free shipping on shipping the mobo back to newegg or whever you got it, (which you wont)

    It&#39;s probably best to not consider other competing products after buying new hardware, due to the speed with which improved models are released. There&#39;s always something new coming out that you could wait for.

    Similarly, I keep hearing people say things like, "Blimey, I paid 95 for my DVDRW drive two weeks ago and there it is for 85 now... I wish I&#39;d waited."
    Daft, really. Why wait just that little bit for a little saving when you can wait longer for a bigger one? Doing so will mean you never buy it because prices are always dropping until it&#39;s discontinued, by which time there&#39;s a new model that you can wait for a saving on... forever.

    After I buy stuff I don&#39;t look at comparison sites or prices for that group of products for quite a while afterwards, just so I don&#39;t feel bad.
