    Thanks to Cold Storm I got a sweet link over MSN.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128434

    I'm really thinking of pulling the trigger, and replacing my UD6 with this, and just give it to her. I planned on selling her Asus to help offset the cost, so essentially getting the GB for around $190 shipped after I sell it.

    Thoughts, comments, kicks in the grapes?

    can anyone help me decipher the GPU slot BS?

    I really hope they dont mean only the top two slots are 16x and the bottom 2 are 8x?


    Got the manual;) sorted...

    SO, I know if I should ;)


    The Slots are strange.. Newegg even confused me the first time reading it on how it goes 16x16... But, then again. It's Newegg...

    I'm going to be selling the Asus, I'm just glad its held together for me this long. Asus and I dont have a good track record, so it booting and OCing was a plus this time around, I just dont care for it like the GB's.

    Couldnt find a blue PCB cake:banghead:

    already pulled the waterblock for the Silent pipe cooler, lets just say the mating surface is slightly less than horrible:( looks like it was cast, and never cleaned up or leveled. Only downfall so far that I see, gonna take a bit more TIM;)
