    Hello there,

    I just purchased this board for my AMD rig, I was wondering if you guys have any feedback and or results/benchmarks you can post so that I have an idea how well this board performs. Thanks in advance. I should be getting mine tomorrow.

    Love the board, however there is one stipulation with it. Regardless of whether there is one video card or two installed the PCIE runs at only 8X.

    thats good to know :(

    thanks for that, however i'll be trying to most overclock the CPU and benchmark CPU related, but anyways, would have been good to have a 16x PCIE :(

    Just got it running today. BIOS is not as complicated as people say, pretty simple, the layout is great. So far I have done any good overclocking yet so can't say. But Lan partyes are known my friend. Don't think you can go wrong with them!

    Ill post some feedback as soon as I have some.

    Shouldn't be that big a deal unless your running a 4870x2 or gtx 295. Lower cards won't have any trouble at 8x bandwidth.

    I looked at there site, but there is no windows flash Utility for Vista which blows.. meaning the only way to do it is FLASH USB, which i don't have :/

    There were some minor fixes

    Well I figured i'd post this for feedback to other users.


    the board only lasted about 4 days. I didnt even push it hard. It was down for a while now and I finally tried my CPU on another board and it booted right up. This board is not posting and the LCD poster is posting code 88 which I heard is DEAD as far as DFI goes. I will be sending this back to newegg tomorrow for an RMA.

    I have a question CP. Initially I didn't realize that it was an AMD board. Does using a single PCI-E slot actually use x16 bandwith? Sorry to hear it broke on you.
