I must admit, one of these would look good in the case that Bill is building for HWC. ;)

Great looking board, and a ton of neat features that nobody will ever really need, unless you're Jody of course :P. Wait, I don't even think he has a cell phone IIRC lol.

But yeah it's really too bad you got a dud chip. Bitch at Intel and see if you can get one from a better batch :).

yeah, the board is loaded with stuff that i can actually use, but even more stuff i can't. it's got some pretty interesting stuff on it though. as much as i hate saying positive things about ASUS software, the ROG Connect stuff is pretty damn handy and cool.

as for the chip, it isn't really a dud, for the volts and temps it is pretty solid...just the cold bug is holding it back huge. i am more interested in working with the ASUS guys on alleviating cold bug issues more than getting a different chip
