    Nice. I enjoyed Ace-a-Rue's posts in the Abit P35 monster thread and I'm looking forward to another great thread for a motherboard that is deserving of all the attention it is getting.

    you might want to check with paypal to see why...log on to your online account to check to see if they have a problem with your checking account...i can access PayPal from newegg for payment!

    i was only doing this for this one international user...unfortunately, you would still need to use paypal with me so that wouldn't work out if i decided to help you...sorry.

    the board does about 20 Mhz better on the FSB with the same E8500 that was used on the Gigabyte X48T (DDR3) DQ6 board.

    what i see with the PCIe 16x slots is a slight limitation...if you do not intend on doing crossfire and just run one video card, that card can run at 16x (PCIE 2.0 specs)...the 2nd PCIE 16x slot will not function with anything plugged into the slot...it is powered but the bios will not recognize it...i have an Areca Raid 8X PCIe raid card that i wanted to operate in the 2nd 16X slot...in order to do that, i had to move the jumpers on the board to enable crossfire which puts both 16X slots into 8X speed....it is not a big thing because the speed is there for a single video card, as long it is a PCIe 2.0 specs card...i have an 9800 GTX card.

    i'll run some 3D benches tomorrow or later on this morning to show the differences between the X48 DDR3 board and this board with the same video card used on the X48T.

    basically...i could do 500 FSB @ 8x on the GA-X48T DQ6 board (GSkill DDR3-1600 memory) and this board i can do 520 FSB @ 8x using only GSkill DDR2-6400 memory..pretty good!

    two quicky benches...the HDTach is done on Raptor Veloci 10K RPM drives...these drives are only 2.5 inches...the latency is a bit higher than their Sata I 10K RPM 150 Gb drives but they are faster in sequential read speed.

    the PCMARK 2005 bench was done on these drives which will boost the score because the drives are in a Raid 0, 128K stripe...over a single drive setup, it might mean about 500-700 point differential.

    i will show you what the Gigabyte X48T board scored with the same E8500 with a different drives attached to the Areca 8x card...i'll have to pull those drives out of this machine (i have two extra) and attach them to the Biostar Areca card and then run set up again for a comparison...BUT...just from an eyeball point of view, this board and the P45 chipset is darn good for a DDR2 board.
