Thank you - I'l definitely go for another DS3L. And FYI, that ECS mobo is dead. It didn't like to be oc'ed; a cap popped.

So I'm back to single CPU folding ATM.

You're just not having any luck with budget mobos are you????

You know what the worst part is? I'm the usual guy who buys things and pays a bit more for quality. And for this "budget / test" rig, well I got screwed big time. First with those 2 XFX 650i mobos, then the 2 Crucial Rendition sticks, the faulty FSP 350W PSU, and now that ECS mobo.

Never, ever again low-end, budget stuff for me. I'm waiting until tomorrow to buy my second DS3L from DC - there's a nice S3L up on eBay, for sale by NCIx, of all...

direct canada and purolator combined to screw up my latest upgrade so i cancelled the order. When i calm down (and see the refund) I may proceed with the upgrade.

But i will contemplate some oher production changes that could help us get there a bit faster.
