    The teeth on the skull make me laugh. Nice find, BTW. For some reason, top intel boards don't hit the shelves here...

    Nice looking board! Personally I would not pay 150$ for a X58 board when I can get cheaper P67 boards for new chipset.

    I'm looking at it differently. I can buy a new $150 X58 board instead of a $150 Z68 one, and I'm getting a used i7-970 for about $50 more than I'd pay for a new i7-2600K. So a six-core chip that OC's quite OK.

    Yea the 32NM 6 core gulftowns are still very good! I thought about 970 but the price of the chip alone here would almost get me a full sandy bridge combo!

    :cool:


    I'll post here anyway :)


    Intel i5 2500k @ 4.4ghz CNPS10x Extreme
    Asus P8P67 EVO
    2x 4Gb Kingston HyperX Genesis PnP (Sandy bridge edition) 1.5v 9-9-9-27 1600mhz
    PowerColor HD6950 1gb 880/1250
    Crucial M4 64gb
    RAID1 Western digital Black 2x 1Tb 32mb
    CoolerMaster CM690 Advanced II
    OCZ Z-Series 850w

    Maybe one day a second HD6950 if I don,t go HD7000.

    PSU is over powered for this computer, but I had it for a small price brand new, it's gold, it's excellent and I run 24/7, so low charge all day :) (and ready for crossfire)
