    SOLD!


    I picked up a UD3R so I have no need for this board now.

    For some reason anything above 4ghz on my I7 would just shut the PC down. No idea why, but 4ghz was 100% stable no issues, but 4.2ghz+ under load it would just shut off. Now, I replaced it with the UD3R and replaced the power supply at the same time so it *could* have been the power supply. Regardless, I'm selling this board as is with only a DOA warranty on it no overclocking gauranteed. Now if you aren't an overclocker and/or just a mild overclocker and want to get into 1366 the cheapest way, this is exactly for you!

    $95 shipped in the USA

    Here's a newegg link-
    ASRock X58 Extreme LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Mo...

    As you can see I'm WAY below retail because of this issue. Heatware is in my sig, perfect 109-0-0 so you don't need to worry. I've stated all issues up front, and I garauntee no DOA on this board.

    There is no warranty as it's out of date, was purchased more than a year ago.

    Comes as pictured here, I'll throw in a couple sata cables as well to make it full retail. SLI bridge is in the anti static bag there.

    It was also suggested that I try a different Bios, so I tried 1.9 and 2.3 still no luck. Here's a screenshot of 4ghz, I know only 15 minutes stress but I'm not spending a lot of time on a $95 asking price board but I was running 4ghz 24/7 on this board for a month straight. Also, I turned HT off and it was stable up to 4.4ghz, so the board simply can't supply enough juice or something for the CPU I dunno-

    Man if I hadn't just bought a kinect I would be all over this. Bump for an amazing price. 4Ghz is nothing to be ashamed of ;)
