Review is up, questions and comments welcome. :)

ASRock X48TurboTwins-WiFi Review

Wasn't a bad board at all, 500+ FSB on x48 is something even the big boys are struggling with right now.

It doesn't look that bad but the horrible placement of the 24 pin connector is a huge disadvantage.

Wasnt that bad for me since I dont use a case, but I can see why people hate the placement. Dont expect it to change anytime soon, it is likely way too expensive to change layout on budget boards, everything would have to be re-engineered. If you want x48 for under $200 though this is a pretty decent option.

Well, here's the board mounted in an Antec 900:

Eldonko, PM me when you get back, I've got a question about those FSB jumpers you may be able to help me with.

Edit: NVM, I sorted it out. Set the jumpers to DDR2-800 setting, then I can run 1:1 ratio. Testing 8.5x475 now.
