We are certainly willing to help you, but you really should follow that link and come back with questions. Also, you should not ask for specific bios settings to get you to a certain clock. i7's are a different kind of beast. Each individual chip can need vastly different settings.

Why wouldn't they? Legacy support is important to a lot of people.

New PB for SP 32M i7 920 D0.

Vcore probably could be lower, RAM is still on stock volts :)

I won't argue that, but I would disagree at a $350 price point. There may be a few, but I would expect them to be the minority when it comes to spending $350 on a new motherboard. I could maybe see the IDE, but definitely not the floppy.

Thanks

BTW I can also run other multi-threaded benchmarks at that speed too, again that vcore is most likely over kill.

that OC is not prime/occt stable lol ;)
I don't give a fuck if I can run some gay stability tests. All I do is bench with my i7 pc, thats it, hence if it can run 3D 06 or whatever benchmark i'm wanting to run thats all I need :)
