    Aside from Xpower geared more at overclocking and M7 geared at gaming, I'd say go for more lights! Seriously though, that's a hard choice.

    I am not big on overclocking I run my system at 4.0 and no more, but gaming now I love gaming and
    with that said I really love the looks of both and what they bring to the table, but its going to be the M7 for me

    OMG that's an awesome board.

    As for the Intel/AMD question, I'm personally thinking I'd wait until we can see some side-by-sides with real workloads and cooling...

    I know there are some reviews out there, but given the cost of *either* of these chips...this is a case when waiting for some more in-depth and comparative reviews might be really worth it. Especially, when Motherboard wise, we have some awesome options for both platforms. I did read something the other day about PCIE lane differences between the Intel and AMD Processors/Boards. That might be worth looking into with the advent of NVMe as Primary Storage...

    I am in no hurry on either and will wait and see how it all plays out between AMD and Intel before I Jump in and make my purchase
    that goes for the MB as well
