My System Specs

Default GA-EX58A-UD3R

What do you guys think of this board about OC for a 930 and capability?? Do you have any decent review. Here I talk about the A version not the X58 cheap one...the X58A with USB 3 SATA 6 and 6 channel memory.

Thx guys!

My System Specs

Default

I just got this board and CPU about a week or two ago. So far it's rock solid at stock and with a HD 5870 and 9800GT for PhysX it's destroying every game, even Metro 2033 maxed out.

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.

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.
