    Let me first replace the stock Intel HSF it's running on, with something like the NH-C14 or Venom, I have lying around.

    You should be the judge of that ;) Any thoughts of sticking your own on? And glad to hear the first one seemed to be just a "dud" board.

    VRM seems quite cool (considering it has no heatsinks at all):

    It's the IOH I'm worried about. Its heatsink somehow seems too slim.

    I have a boxful of graphics card memory heatsinks. Once I'm convinced that I don't have to return this board, I'll stick them up to the VRM. Thankfully this board uses Renesas driver-MOSFETs (and not split LFPAK FETs), so it's easier to cover them with heatsinks.

    BTW, check out the 360 degree spin of this board. There are no VRM heatsinks on those pictures, so it looks like a cost-cutting specs revision:

    Got some new 4GB/DIMM rams to play with. Just getting started! I xchecked reviews and htere are at least 2 versions of these sticks, but it seems that reviewers weren't playing with secondaries with the sets similar to mine. Most were NOT able to hit these sort of clocks and timings:

    Like I said, just getting started. I'm working on 3 reviews, two system builds, and playing with these rams on my own rig, while I still have one set of DIMMs from G.Skill waiting to be tried too.

    I tried just upping the memory multi, and it was not good, but after tweaking the secondaries, it seems good to go. I still have to test for lower voltage as well.

    Gonna take some time for me to get it all sorted; gotta try a few other boards yet and see what happens. Should have a good idea of 4GB DIMM timings by hte time I'm done...made sure to get a few different kits with different IC's. I'll be working on 2133 MHz next.

    Back to the pics.

    Not sexy, its a cruncher so rubber bands and no case, but I'm wondering why it says win win on the usb hub.

    You so need the ECS Black/Grey/white color-scheme. Looks killer, but that would top it off.
