Hi Folks,
I am debating between these two boards. Based on the reviews here both look pretty capable boards. However I have the following questions;

Doesn't seem to have any overburn protection. Does anyone experienced any problems because of this.

Looks like the firewire and one of the USB ports (is it 1.1 or 2.0) that could be put in the front of the case. Has anyone used this feature. Does it require a case which has firewire and USB ports in the front? If not how does one go about installing them?

Looks like both of them have support for SD/MS/SC readers. What additional hardware would one require to use these functions.
I am going crazy to make a decision between these two. Any pointers would be helpfu.

i've got the asus and they give you slot covers with the extra usb and firewire ports

oh, and make sure your case can support different motherboard backplates
