    Does anyone know what the difference between the GA-965P-DS3 and the GA-965P-S3 ?
    The S3 is less than 20 dollars in price but looking at their specs they appear to be the same ... ??

    Thanks in advance .. :)

    The DS3 has more solid caps, they appear to have a longer lifetime, I have a DS3 ;)

    None at all, good quality board, cant get FSB higher than 480, but I think that is more down to my ram, the lowest divider is 2, so it tops the ram out @ DDR960!

    Mine is a rev 1 board I think they are on to rev 3 now, chipset gets quite hot, but if you active cool it you will beable to push it hard!

    Hope that helps ;)
