    I have a DFI X38-T2R and 4gb (4x1gb) of Crucial Ballistix DDR2 800 that I would like to trade straight up for a Gigabyte UD3P. The Ballistix are brand new never opened, I just got them on Thursday.

    The reason for the trade is simple, I need to get a Quad friendly board. The T2R is perfect for dual cores and 4 sticks of ram but struggles with a quad and high fsb.

    So here's your chance to get an awsome board that will clock sky high with a Dual Core and you get 4 sticks of ram for free! I had my E8400 running 4.3ghz with ram doing 1148mhz @ 2.1v rock solid stable!

    X38 is a good quad clocking board. :)

    Not good enough for my needs, 456fsb is the absolute limit for me with my Q9650 anything higher is a no go. With a Dual Core I could hit 500fsb without much effort, I ran it at 478x9 24/7 with my E8400.

    Thanks bro, didn't mean to sound like a jerk to you. It is a great board but it's just not able to take my Quad to it's maximum potential.:toast:

    No its not. I had that same board and I coudlnt get passed 3.5Ghz with my Xeon. Got my Asus P45 and Im 3.8Ghz rock solid stable. x38/48 is a dual core board.

    I would like to test my quad on a DFI P45 and see if I cant get any difference out of my quad. Doubt it though. I do love DFI though. :D

    Good luck with the sale.

    I too have great love for DFI boards but I've heard nothing but good things about the UD3P when paired with a quad. Besides that you can't find any LT or UT P45 boards at a decent price.

    A P45 won't do much (if any) better. X48 MIGHT though.

    I disagree also, you should visit some of the more recent quad core threads. You will see a lot of people running p45 boards with great overclocks on there quads.

    I disagree because I own 2 P45 boards, I'm the creator of the P5Q Series mBIOSes and the TPower I45 mBIOS, thus I've had A LOT of P45 related feedback. Despite my tweaks where people DO get better FSB results, rarely can anyone get beyond 460-480FSB.

    ED - heres a Link to my thread on XS for the P5Q Series mBIOSes. Long read, 60+ pages.

    Thanks for the insight Ketxxx but do you have any experience with the UD3P? The reason I ask is because it seems to be a bit better than the rest of the P45 boards I've seen out there. I have done a bit of research and I think the UD3P will give me the best potential to max out my quad.

    Also thank you for all your hard work in the overclocking comminuty.:respect:
