    well guys ive been sitting around for the last few years upgrading very slowly to where i wanted to be.i finally got my CC paid of so i decided to splurge a little bit and build a new system

    the following is what i purchased today.

    [​IMG]

    this is my first board i have owned thats not a DFI...looking at this bios is like reading another language


    [​IMG]

    i opted for the i7 860 because i5 is pointless when u already had a quad.


    [​IMG]

    awesome memory GSKILL RIPJAWS DDR3 2000!!! sweet!

    [​IMG]

    the board outside the box...sexy!!

    [​IMG]

    Very nice setup AthlonX2, really luv the board.

    Also that's a nice oc without any tweaking, got to agree the 860 seems to be the way to go with these boards.
    You may well have made my mind up on my next upgrade :)

    Yeah, my biostar board uses American Megatrends. What do you want to know? Although... American Megatrends is just a brand name and the p55 platform and am2+ platform are very different things.

    I'm not certain, how ever apparently it helps with the VTT voltage.

    Why not just without touching any voltages, set all volts to default and see how far she can OC. Watch if there is any vdroop issue then you will know how far which voltage you can push to safe limits.

    just my 2 cents.

    hey athlon, have not seen you around much lately, how have you been?

    anyway, damn that board is black as night, i think you need to consider a serious case mod to compliment it. but if you would rather waste time OCing...

    I'm just kidding you, I want to see some big numbers out of this baby. What's your water cooling setup?
