    I need to look through my dictionary for a deffinition of wait. LOL! Changed my mind, wanted it now. Finding over $300 bux in your room helps a bit to.

    all my threads usually grow pretty fast.

    me and dark are hoping to get some sick OCs on the asus boards here pretty quick.

    im hoping to see some of the other boards show up soon.

    So in an act of foolishness I decided to overnight myself that LGA 1366 backplate that Paulie found from the CM store. Grand total $59 bux. Today was an expensive day.

    It looks like the RAM I want is going to set me back the furthest. I too want to know how the MSI board works considering it's the least expensive of the bunch right now.

    every single ddr3 stick i have has booted in this board no problem. you dont have to be very picky what set you get.

    giorgos has the GB UD5 board. Somebody should pm him this thread.

    The GB board or the Revolution are the 2 I have my eyes set on right now.

    For the cost of that board it should make toast and give backrubs too!:laugh: I see your point though, I've never really been let down by Asus boards, perhaps I should save a little more and get it.

    another note......

    NB is cold as ice. i dont think anyone will need to worry about cooling anything other than CPU on these setups.

    What about this "must be a tri channel kit" crap that was being said before..

    I doubt its true but figured its worth the check.

    I kinda figured that. No IMC goes a long way to reducing temps. All these elaborate NB coolers are just there to make people feel at ease, because they are used to 775 chipsets actually needing the extra cooling.
