    Like i said don't take it the wrong way...
    I have no doubt that it is a good board it's an Asus board after all but Asus should have done something to make this board better looking , but i guess it would cost more money just for the "looks" but still...

    You're the one who should take it easy , if you reread my other post you'll see that i was talking about the looks of board only & nothing else... & i did said that i understand having a tight budget i also am in the same situation..

    Come on man, this is getting ridiculous! :laugh: I told you, I understood CLEARLY what you mean't, I was only telling you that it wasn't cool to tell that to him, that is all. Hence why I said "lets petition et bla bla". It was just a joke to take the heat off. Now let's act like adults, shall we? :toast:

    it's all good guys.... sheesh. ;)

    I have it OC'd to 2.8GHz now and she's running smooth. I do need to get an aftermarket cooler but the dang things these days are huge and I would have to pull the MB out with 99% of them to install the back plate. At 2.8GHz and at idle I'm getting 35c with the stock HSF. Not to shabby.

    C'mon man! push it....:laugh: ;)

    You should be fine with about ~400 mhz of overclock with the original HSF
    For an aftermarket HSF... wich ever you choose get one with heat pipes they work great at full

    Great! make that chip fly, it can go further. But you'll need better cooling if you want to touch the skies. The coolermaster hyper 212+ is a cheap but real efficient one. ~$30 dollars, there aren't many coolers that can give you such performance.:toast:

    Yeah but then the damn MB has to come back out again. BLAH!!! uugghhhh..... :( Isn't there a good HSF that works without pulling out the MB?
