    Nice to see they fixed the spelling on "OC Dial" before it hit the shelves

    Nice looking board... that's the one I want to get I think. Although all that ram timings is bound to confuse me!

    JK (sorta), I hope the board can stand up to the bios options available.

    Can anyone verify if the 4th core on X3 720 BE can be unlocked using ACC on this board?

    problem 1

    this board has the same symptoms as the gigabyte board, not being able to post past 213 in bios with a 4870x2 card memory is super stable.

    The general concensus is that all manufacturers are patching thie bios's to not enable the 4th core.......what this means is that although you can unlock a chip on an older bios you will be missing out on the fixes patches and performance tweaks of the newer bios.......basically you will have no support.....

    I understand the issue with no support but most people almost never have to update the bios short of a critical system issue.

    I just need to know if the current bios that comes with the mobo can support 4th core unlocking as I already have a working 4 core X3.

    Besides, we can count on bios modders to rescue us should we need to update to a newer bios.

    I'd consider the lack of being able to clock the NB a critical system issue

    damn, can't see the results here at work!

    I'm really close to pulling the trigger on this one, board looks awesome. I'm just worried about a weak PWM section in comparison to the Gigabyte/Asus boards. But since I'm only using air, i dont see myself pushing the pwms to the limit at all. Also interested to see how well the APS feature works when you are using an OCed setup.

    Actually, this is still being completed as further details will be added in the upcoming BIOS update.
