Those temps are crazy high at only 1.048v :eek: What's the benefit of having bleeding edge hardware, if you can't push it?

For overclocker stock settings don`t mean a damn thing.

So in an act of foolishness I decided to overnight myself that LGA 1366 backplate that Paulie found from the CM store. Grand total $59 bux. Today was an expensive day.

It looks like the RAM I want is going to set me back the furthest. I too want to know how the MSI board works considering it's the least expensive of the bunch right now.

For the cost of that board it should make toast and give backrubs too!:laugh: I see your point though, I've never really been let down by Asus boards, perhaps I should save a little more and get it.

NB is cold as ice. i dont think anyone will need to worry about cooling anything other than CPU on these setups.

I kinda figured that. No IMC goes a long way to reducing temps. All these elaborate NB coolers are just there to make people feel at ease, because they are used to 775 chipsets actually needing the extra cooling.
