The Test

In recent times, choosing a motherboard cannot be completely determined by a Winstone score. Now, many boards come within one Winstone point of each other and therefore the need to benchmark boards against each other falls. Therefore you shouldn't base your decision entirely on the benchmarks you see here, but also on the technical features and advantages of this particular board, seeing as that will probably make the greatest difference in your overall experience.

The Final Decision

If you are in the market for a TX based motherboard, by all means pick the Shuttle HOT-565. The 565 is great for the average user with a craving for speed as well as the die hard overclocker., kudos to Shuttle on an excellent product (btw...the Shuttle HOT-567 is supposedly the same board as the 565, with an ATX layout just incase you aren't too comfortable with an AT style board)
