Temps are rather high but need higher CFM fans on my HE. Will be doing more extensive testing to see if I can get more FSB out of this board and get lower Vcore.

Still very impressed with this chip ;)

Lol, I am chasing you around the net Eldonko!!!

I got it from Direct Canada and it does look like L724A has what it takes. SupertimOr might have a couple in stock at his store.

MaxFSB is a huge challenge on my 680i. Looking to get a P5K to hold off untill the X38 comes out. But kinda broke ATM. See if I can find a P5k used somewhere.

Nice OC!

You should join that puppy up to our HCF folding team.

http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/hardw...ucks-f-h-team/

We could sure use another folder on the team ... especially one with a fast quad like yours

Damn, thats awesome turtle! I am supposed to receive a Q6600 next week. it's a G0 guarantee. I hope it'll hit such clocks. If i can just get 3.6Ghz, i'll be happy since thats what im running my E6600 at.

Hey Patriote!!

Hows things??? Hope you get a L724A, cuz this thing is a monster. I am going to pull 2GB of RAM and move back to XP and really start benching this thing. I am trying to sell my 680i and get a P5K Premium and I garuntee higher clocks too. The 680i is holding me back I am quite sure.

Should be able to get much higher RAM clocks as I have a pretty sick set of Team Xtreem GMH that I havent really given the treatment to yet.

Be sure to let me know what week/batch you get ;)
