    Great, I should have mine today or the latest on monday board has been shipped...

    Will test it with E8400/Q6600 and QX9650...
    Question : Why do some overclockers switch into d*ckmode when money is involved

    Remark : They call me Pro Asus Saaya yupp, I agree

    In bios chipset voltage is set at default 1.25v but in windows it reads 1.76v. I'm using Everest utility to check , sandra reads the same. Everything else reads normal

    Very stable board. At first I though something was wrong with the board because this is my first board that powers off when you change something in bios. Besides that I'm loving the board.

    This board doesn't have GTL ref voltage. Btw, I lowered my CPU PLL/SB volts to 1.388 from the default 1.5 and still manage to achieve stability.
