lol, i have just realized something, I still havent done my income tax so thats what im doing today. My final desicision will be determined by the amount i get back lol. If i get enough back I'll grab a conroe board and a new e6600, if not I'll grab that biostar board and the heatsink that was suggested with it So hears hoping for a rebate of around $400-$500

If you go C2D and are waiting for your return, the way to go is DFI P965 Dark, should be avail in Canada shortly (likely ncix gets it 1st).

Is there much info out on this board yet?

I might be interested if I can find out what kind of bios settings its got. (I'm assuming from the name that it's a 965 chipset).

Some Taiwanese friends have em now and they are avail in the US in a few places (ewiz) so yeah there are results up. Max FSB is huge 550+ and benches are quite a bit faster than any other 965 chipset boards out there. Here is a test run hicookie did, 12minute 32M @ 4G is hella fast.




OPB has a detailed thread @ ocx if you want to see the bios and good board pics. The Official DFI P965 Dark Deep Discussion thread - OCXtreme.org Forums

Well, it is an older chipset (965) so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it'll be marketed along the same lines as the ultra-D was. (not cheap, but not at the highest end either).

It is reasonably priced, $140 in the US, probably $175-$200 once ncix gets it.
