    Nice Ballistix sticks. If that board performs anything like the Gigabyte x58 boards, then we should see some pretty awesome results.

    only thing i hate about this board is the fact that the power button is in the worst place.

    how am i supposed to turn this thing on? :p

    :roll: they obviously didn't think about video cards when they were trying to figure out where to place the power button on the board :roll:

    its really the only flaw. everything else is SICK.

    its HEAVY and you can tell its durable as hell.

    looks odd without a NB though.

    guess you can watercool the VRMs but that may look odd.

    lol... maybe they can squeeze the VRMs into the cpu as well someday. then you just need 1 block.

    You know, I'm trying as hard as possible, but P55 just does not impress me at all. I'd rather just spend the extra money and grab X58.

    Not many would argue except the enthusiasts who have had to try it all. I'm glad I am sticking with x58

    I just noticed something odd today, after playing game for 2 hours, I saw the NB heatsink temp LED flashing, which mean it reached ~60C.

    And it's IDLE around 45-50C, Is this normal?

    Ive got my 965 EE arriving next week and some other new stuff, Is it worth buying 1600Mhz DDR3 modules yet? as they are still fairly pricey where im at.

    Sorry to barge in on the thread like this, seems like the best place to ask.

    Also nice setup fitseries, Those blue crucial modules are looking awesome, never seen crucial modules like that before.

    It's worth it rai. Try and find some used on the forums and save yourself some money. I'm sure you can find a 3x1 or 2x6 set fairly cheap here on the forums.
