My System Specs

Default

The main concern for me is CPU OC. Have you try any or do you plan to try? I am still between this bard and the UD5 but if this board can do it right with a 930 I will get it.

From the start when I first built it I have never had a single BSOD, freeze or anything, have been using it everyday since I got it. I have 3x 2GB of Patriot Extreme Performance 1600MHz RAM in triple channel, just used the XMP for RAM settings and it's mint.

Ass for overclocking, I have the 5870 at a nice 900/5200, and now am left with the CPU overclock. I have been researching but this i7 stuff is all new to me. I am going to start tomorrow and will take my time. Will let you know, and please do the same with your adventures should you choose this setup.

I am very happy with it now, and it has the new features for tomorrow.
