    Go Gigabyte

    Its pretty impressive to me hitting 3520MHz with a E6400. Do you mind re doing some of the test at overclocked speeds to see how much more powerful the CPU is now.

    I can give you the short and dirty answer though: "OMFGHOLYSHITZ THAT'S FAST!!"

    Nice review, Would get that board, but the 4x PCI-E puts me off.

    kinda kills the crossfire compatibility for me (but then I doubt I'll ever use crossfire or SLI) so why even say it does crossfire? (somebody slap that idiot from marketing)

    Well CrossFire support is unofficial. For those not using any of the x1 slots it'll be at "full" x4 speeds, so it's not to worry. It's not just CrossFire, however, anything like a RAID card plugged into the bottom x16 slot will suffer the same effect.

    It's official on P965 with Catalyst 6.9 and a pair of X1900's. Every board that has two X16 interconnects *should* do CrossFire already, or will after a BIOS update.

    Well, how many PCI-E x1 cards do you have? ;)

    That doesnt make sense, why would they officially ratify something CrossFire enabled that's not at least two x8s?

    Zero, (point taken) but with the speed that graphics moved from AGP I'm surprised there aren't many other PCI-e cards out.

    obviously anything more than a pie chart arrouses mr nature, can you imagine what a small dancing blue thing would do to a man like that?

    ps. That board is now on my shopping list. Although, by christmas - when i'm updating - i would imagine that prices may have dropped an new boards come out. For now though, its on my shopping list.
