    that 'waterblock' can't act as a very good heatsink under air, the fins on the base are tiny.

    but enough of all that, are you having fun in vegas timmy (assuming ur still there)?

    I possibly misunderstood, but this isn't quite the final design - it's about 2 months away from launch. :)

    Tiredness is starting to kick in... sleep is for the weak as they say, so I gotta stay strong. :p

    Well, it'll be good enough for those only wanting a mild boost, or those who inherit the board after it's no longer the latest or greatest.

    I know around here, new hardware usually gets bought by my roommate, I'll buy it when he upgrades, and what gets upgraded usually goes to all the parents. Seems to work pretty good for all of us.

    To think I'm just down the road from CES and more importantly across the border in Yermo California, I'll be waiting for more info as It's put online. :)

    Im pretty interested tbh, would of bought the Mars as well if it was about £20 cheaper, as long as its not stupidly priced and gets a good review from you guys its got a pretty good chance of finding its way into my system

    This is probably a dumb question, but whatr are those red, white and blue connectors down the left side of the board? eSATA? USB? I don't think i've seen a connector like that before???

    any one bought one? I can't seem to get the my memory to 1333 or over without crashing
    OCZ HPC 1333mhtz 4 gb (2 x2) its rated at 1333 and have had it to over 1450 on a small over clock on the 790i board
    Just cant seem to get it to do much on this (tests fine with mem tests)

    Any suggestions please.... non abusive ones would be constructive :eek:)

    Just got lucky and purchased the Foxconn Blackops for $140 shipped from Newegg! From what I see this is the best board for under $200!. My question is.... What memory works best with this board with a Q9650 chip set ? 'm looking at Cosair or OCZ! On a budget of about $1,000 to 1,200! Please help!!
