What motherboard? Gigabyte or DFI? Link takes to Giga, but the text says DFI. Pasting the text into the addy bar gets the DFI X48:

I like the Giga lower end boards, but would never buy into their high end. I found that they sacrifice a bit of performance for better stability. Across all their models, they are always a tick under the competitors in the benches. I don't worry about this in the $150 and below range.

The DFI is sweet. It will always bench a little higher than anything else at the same given speed and ram setting. Runs a little less dough too.
