Any official response from board partners about availability in Canada? I'd be ready to pull the trigger on a 990FX + 560 ti for the summer if they were around............ ;)

Nice, I am still a firm believeer in overclocking my system rather than just multi clocking, I just it is just a throwback from the old days.

I was disappointed that my 790 would only hit 278fsb but 330+ is very nice.

I am still on the fence about staying with AMD, TBH I think I am going to go to the darkside and jump on Sandy for my main. But if Dozer does end up being a gem I just might be looking at this board for the wife. Nice little board at a reasonable price. Poor girl is on a 8750/8200 combo right now.

Thanks for taking the time to post the Max FSB for me MAC

Waiting on the Gigabyte UD3 here. I'm trying to go for a black and white theme for my system

This board looks pretty slick though, with the performance to boot

since this has nvidea's blessing, does that mean it will be easier to set up a dedicated physx card for a crossfire setup?

would love to know for my 4870x2 crossfire setup, as i would love to have a dedicated physx card, if its not I'm sure I'll be able to scoop up a used formula 4 board in the months to come..

Pulled the pin on this over the weekend, along with a $60 dual core am3 proc to run the GFX farm on the CH IV until such time as BD hits the street to replace the 1090t with. :)
