On another note, OC'ing with these boards is a bit overwhelming to me. I'm so used to my old Q9550 and the EP45-UD3P. Back then it was just crank up the FSB and up the Vcore!

I'm at 4.5GHz @ 1.3v so far. I notice one of my cores is just over 10 degrees cooler than the other 3...
Yeah, me too. So many options...

If you plan to bench then go with the fastest. For everyday use, go with something cheaper like a C300 or Intel Gen 2, you will not see a difference in speed between the SATAII and SATAIII. I went from 2 x C300 SATAIII in a RAID0 to an Intel 320 160Gb single drive and cannot tell the difference unless I run a HD benchmark. Even in Vantage I see virtually no difference in the score. For mechanical drives I would do SATAIII, in fact I have two x 2TB drives in a RAID1 on my SATAIII to get the best transfer rates from them while my 160Gb SSD is connected to a SATAII port. I also have a WD 256Gb SATAII drive for my games connected to a SATAII port and the maps load just as quick as they did on the C300 RAID0 I had. With SSD's, I would stay away from Sandforce controllers due to the compression and do either the Intel or the Crucial drives. I doubt you will be disappointed.

... and WHY ?
Just to clear something up, both of those Crucial drives are the same. I bought the one that's now listed as $249.99 but when I bought it, it was going for $215 along with the other one. The only difference is that the CT128M4SSD2CCA comes with a data transfer kit.

I'm enjoying my drive so far. Didn't run any benches but since I bought it to replace an HDD, it's obviously a night and day difference.

Anyone want to tell me about changing the bus speed on this board... I mean, should I do it, how much is too much... and so on.

Like I mentioned earlier, I'm pretty lost when it comes to OCing with this board since there are just so many options compared to 775s

I havent overclocked my chip past 4.5Ghz at the moment and all that involved was changing the multiplier.

In SB changing the multiplier isnt even need... Just up the multiplier to 45 if you want a 4.5Ghz OC. Of course adjusting the Vcore is needed to achieve a stable overclock depending on your chip and how much you overclock it.

I'd still stick w/ #0208 (1st/original BIOS) until otherwise notified.
Its written there, that this BIOS will be posted on the official DL site on 31st july.
