    whatever you like, I'll match it. If you can post a shot of your ram clock, so I can lower my divider and run it as close to yours as possible :) make the benches as even as I can.

    Hey Paul using this MSI board it is very well made and nicely laid out, but I have used 3 Asus boards prior to this and they all were better overclockers. This makes me miss my rampage. It does have some super cool function like two voltages switches on the board that once flipped makes all the adjustments for you to hit 3.6ghz + but unfortunately my TRUE mounting screws won't fit this MSI back plate so the best I could do cooling wise is the stock cooler and my 250 MM side case fan . With that set up I'm stuck at 3.8ghz. Until I get a TRUE mount I don't want to push the voltage.

    From what i've read, I think the MSI board is not so good for clocking. At least from the PhII reviews, where they used MSI, they didn't get far.

    Here is Techreports review from the board itself.

    http://techreport.com/articles.x/16159

    Power consumption, overclocking
    http://techreport.com/articles.x/16159/6

    I am not 100% sure, but I read somewhere that the power stage is somewhat weak too. But that may not be any issue with Deneb, more likely with Agena.

    OMG guys my stuff came in! No lie I was about to piss my pants! I haven't had some hardware like this in like never! Ok, I woke up at 8:30, because I have to get up and do school work and clean the house, but I was like, ok the UPS guy usually comes by around 2:00pm. Well for some reason I went out side anyways, and I found a big box on my porch with my name on it, I almost screamed, but I did jump in joy! Ive had everything in my case already except my cpu, mobo and video card. Well I just no boot it up, and it is freaking sweet! For the past hour I have been downloading and transferring software and drivers on my flash drive because my internet sucks, so I cant connect it to another computer. But just a while ago I popped in Crysis Warhead. Without it over clocked I can play that on the highest setting, I was so happy :D :D :D :D. But now I am going to use AMD overdrive and OC the CPU to see how much I can get, since I have never OC before, Im having to watch a video on how to. But, I dont have a camera, but I will post pics of the PC when I have my sisters camera, and I will take screenies of how far I can get with my CPU.

    That really wouldn't surprise me. Seems a lot of these reviewers don't bother pushing it very far. :slap:

    I guess the reasoning behind that would be, if they break it, they don't get another one to finish reviewing the sucker. For me, I'd do all the OC'ing afterwards and TRY to break it. :D

    sounds like a good idea. Still man I can't wait for that X3, dunno why I'm so pumped about it but I am looking forward to the X3. deneb is sweet though. It's good to see the numbers on deneb are very decent.

    This is very common. Many reviewers have some working knowledge of a bunch of different hardware. Most do not specialize in overclocking, nor will they bother trying beyond what the review calls for.
