    I'll stick with my Asus P5K premuim wifi black pearl edition. I had the Abit IP35pro but found the speeds with this new one quicker, even though the Abit comes in slightly overclocked as stock standard. Think the only one I would consider there would be the DFI

    I would love to see Asus release a new bios for my Maximus. I hope they continue to support it.

    Lol, not insulted at all!:toast: I just really appreciate it's mounting mechanism, and it cools better than my Arctic cooler or Scythe infinity. ...and it's pretty.:D

    I'm sticking with the 907 bios. If this thing burns out, you can bet I'm getting it warranteed, though I've had no problems, hence no reason to flash it to a Rampage.

    *Btw congrats Trt! Perhaps we should start a Maximus/Rampage thread kinda like they got over at Xtremesystems?

    ^^bios support for this mb will dry up Real soon [asus smucks] the Rampage is just starting.
    there might be 2 mebe 3 more for the Formula but the Rampage should have at least 10 to come. should extend the life of this mb until intel puts out a proc with onboard mem control & then we'll all have to up grade

    not sure this is gonna be any better than my P5kE, great board but it seems with the yorkfields it doesn't like more than 4.0ghz prime stable and I can tell the chips Ive had, 3 now, will do more. This chip will do 4.3ghz. It primes at 4.2 at near default but my reset button and Ide drives being to get touchy during boot up. This has happened on all 4 chips to different degrees. This board is a 8 phase power board, but the maximus has 3 phase memory. Which my board doesn't. I'm hoping that makes a difference .Plus when my Gigabyte comes back the upgrade will be near free after the sale. Basically trading 2 boards for one board.
