    my asus crosshair :D should arrive with me tomorrow :rockout: no overclocking on this board for me.......right away at least :p im gonna let stuff all burn in nicely first. and once (if :\) my 3500+ arrives ill hopefully get a decent 2.7-2.8ghz out of it. if i get less, ill feel stiffed. once i sell my other stuff ill get me a x1800xt too. not looking forward to that noisy cooler tho, bad, bad ati. :nutkick:

    heres a nice pic of the crosshair for those that havent seen it yet. and if u havent, what rock have u been hiding under this board even makes the dfi lok like a cheap wannabe board :p

    You'll get it... If my system call pull off 2.8ghz++ stable, that mobo will w/ you behind it doing the memory play!

    :)

    * It looks VERY similar to my mobo, also an ASUS (A8N-SLI Premium), so it only makes sense you can hit that range, & exceed it most likely due to your skills o/c'ing AND the fact that is probably an even BETTER mobo than mine, period!

    APK

    P.S.=> Hey, I'll be "bugging you" shortly on some products from MUSHKIN vs. GEIL memory I have spotted online & want your thoughts... I want the "extra speed" from memory, the area that's been "holding me back/down" in our tests we've done here (especially ScienceMark 2.0 &/or AquaMark 3)... thanks-in-advance, for your time regarding that! apk
