    So far so good, The BX2 is running a bit hotter but also has some better scores.

    Can't wait to see the rest of the benches and get your take on the board.

    Awesome! Nice results for the BX2. Would be interesting to see what the what sort of FSB overclocking could be achieved with this board and a Kentsfield processor. Hopefully they are better than what Eva noted in his tests on an older BX1.

    anyone know if this board requires a ES/Extreme chip or a mod to get the advanced OC options like the original BadAxe?

    Ender17: Didn't Breetai72 answer that in the other thread you asked it in?

    Breetai72 said "BX2 has OC hooks enabled for all processors. The "OC Debug" jumper is still there, but it is no longer used."

    no coldboot problems for me
    The vcore is rock solid on this board, better than all conroe board I tested.
    It's the first board that make my 6600es stable @ 3.8
    all the overclocking option straight in the bios, no mods
    With vcore and vmch mod, this board will fly

    edit : added bios pics

    Looks good, I'm getting my X1900XT 256MB and E6600 on friday for my XBX2. Hopefully I get results like yours. Is your a REV 503 board? Is there a difference between 502 and 503?

    Thanks.

    I bet they won't differ much from the mods already known for the Bad Axe 1.

    When disable the second sata controller in bios, the HDD-LED is always on.... no flickering by HDD access.

    After enable the controller it flickers by HDD access.

    Is this normal?

    I can't tell about the Bad Axe, but my Black Creek (D955XBK, the bad axe predecessor)does exactly the same thing.

    ok, only 1 problem so far : everest = voltage reset = reboot

    if you enable the second sata controller, yes its flickering

    this board is awesome : 3.6ghz prime 10h+, 1.375v set in bios, vfsb and vmch stock, tower 120 @ lowest rpm (almost inaudible), no added fans and only 58c coretemp

    the bad axe "1" needed 1.395/1.695v vfsb/vmch and more vcore
