    My Dominator ram is in backorder:mad: So i changed it to 2x2 Gb Buffalo Firestix. I hope i will get them tomorrow.
    I did not test or oc anything yet because the freaking GPU fan was driving me nuts.:shadedshu
    Just installed Rivatuner to fix the fan issue. The damn thing kept going on and off every few seconds.:laugh:
    I did not order this card but the one with the dual slot cooler but they did not have it any more the guy said. So when i pick up my second card i will get a discount on two after market coolers.:ohwell:

    But the good thing is this:

    I'll bet most of you knew this but i didn't.:laugh:
    I was pretty surprised when i peeled of the sticker It's actually is exactly the same board as the Platinum.:D
    So would it be possible to flash a modded Platinum bios on this board?
    That would be nice.

    Wherever I can find the iron.
    I'd assume it would flash just fine, especially if it's a Platinum in diguise. Kudos on the Firestix. I can't vouch for the 2GB sticks, but the 1GB sticks are killer.
