    Has anyone had personal experience with this board? Is there a FSB:DRAM ration? Settings to unlink and link DRAM to FSB?

    SystemViper and I have both used that board. AWESOME to OC :D SystemViper hit 5.0ghz on a Q9650. I just did a 4.2ghz on E8600

    HOLY SH-!!! AWESOME!!! THAT IS JUST PLAIN FREAKING AWESOM!!!! 4.0 here I come! I will be stopping in later on how to hit 4.0 on a e7300 once I get my parts. My damn machine fried and I am replacing the expensive stuff (mobo, proc, PSU, GPU, not to sure if the ram is ok, but I think it is).

    Ya, just make sure you don't get the LR version of the board with the small silver heatsink on the NB. It's cheap and does not cool correctly. The one you have is this one:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128359&Tpk=GA-EP45-UD3R

    Right?

    If so then it is easy to OC. You can even do it in windows with easy tune 6, but the bios is more reliable. I loved the board. Rock solid. If it happens to be bad just RMA it. I've had a few, doesn't matter what brand. These are by far the best P45s I've worked with.

    I have heard good things about the board. All P45's clock like demons. You seem to be good to go.
