    well just to keep things moving along I thought I would do some FSB testing. Bios at this time goes to 511 and i can hit 511 quite easy with the 6400 511x7.

    You can set higher with the new AMD system manager and I have seen 520 but it was borderline stable. I strongly suggest this board is best with a 6400 or higher, you need the 8 multi due to the 520 ish max fsb you will see at this time. With 6400 or a 66/67 and of course the 6800 you will have no issues

    511 puts this board slightly better than the 975 for FSB clocking.

    more soon.

    I have an ES6700, I don't think its fair to use ES CPU's as they don't perform like retail samples.

    RGone has retail so please wait for him to post, he now has the board in hand

    NB Voltages are high, I have a fan on the NB and ram also.

    I will show how to set the board up for high clocks in the guide

    yeah they perform better lol

    so do some tests for those of us with ES chips.

    come on tony you know you want to throw that ES in there and crank it up.
    to it man.

    This is nothing comparing to 680i. I hope this is just code...

    Tony, do you run a RAID 0 by any chance? If so, any issue with SATA drives in it?

    Thanks!
