I can't understand how hardware vendors can justify making 184 boring variants and not have the balls to make just 1 board that has high-end PWM components, decent bios and basic amount of features.

Well ... I can. They want overclockers to pay too much for the basic stuff they want.

I can agree that mobo makers have gotten soft in their designs, there are a few "good" designs but are usually price exclusive to the point that nobody wants to afford them. Then again it's a huge gamble to design a board "just" for overclocking or just for submitting scores to HWBot. Yes that is every enthusiasts wet dream but seriously that is a ton of money to spend on motherboard that maybe less than 26k people would buy (divided by x number of vendors).

btw I love stats like what you have provided, however I might suggest weighted scores over straight up numbers. For instance # above average and # below average across each board. That would at least tell us if there is one really high score shifting the average over a bunch of crappy ones.

same reason why you don't see boards with 2 crappy phases but seven PCIe plus six heatpipes - marketing people like smooth transitions in features from the bottom to the top of the range. The reason why you see so many mid-end variants is because transition from ~UD3 to ~UD4 level can be done in multiple ways - there's an UD3P with better PWM, for example.

Making an OC dedicated P67 board would be an extremely stupid thing to do, IMO ... unless it costs <$100 since even the ~$150 stuff has all what it takes to max out any 1155 cpu.

Just jumping to conclusions based on the pictures scattered over the web. I see 7.1 audio and can't see any sign of PS/2.

I thought we already established that a more suitable board for overclockers doesn't necessarily have to be 'oc dedicated', but can be build for multiple markets.

Just not the gaming market.
