    TPU bought me an FX-4100! Because of the low performance, the numbers given aren't very useful for board compares, but I am definitely using it to test and verify BIOS support, which has proven to be lacking on some products.

    I do have some unreleased products as well, will talk more about them soon! ;)

    Looking forward to that, board looks really nice and the heatsinks that change colour dependant on temperature look interesting ( be sure to mention if that works or not eh :laugh:)

    Unfortunately, i do not have any boards with a white socket. I have spoken to other reviewers who have tried tohugh, without much luck. There are still some issues on boards taht DO work with Turbo, too, which I am currently investigating as well.

    And yes, Pantherx12, ECS has some nice features added recently to some of thier products. It's a novel thing, for sure.

    I don't usually comment on reviews or reviewers but I agree, you are doing a fantastic job, Dave. :toast:
    Keep up the good work.

    Dave. Since Kreij asked so nicely I have a suggestion for your custom title.

    "Custom Title: Eligible"

    I think it should be something like "Back off or I kill the mobo". :laugh:

    I know what you mean. I have the luxury of changing mine if I like.
    My current one was due to someone saying they didn't know I was a mod, even though my username apears in a bright blue font. :laugh:
    I've had it for awhile so I may change it one of these days.

    I don't have any other on-topic comments so I will just leave you with the kudos.
