Aw, Should have read closer. Probably just my bad attitude due to having so little choices for AM3 and Nvidia SLI in the recent years...Just seeing through tunnel vision.

As for the CPU-NB Voltage, it seems to me that people beleive due to the added work to use 16 gigs of ram, more voltage may be needed to be stable. But then although I have overclocked before, (The 955 ran @3.6ghz for nearly 3 years)I have always used the lazy way just uping the Multiplier and adding a small CPU Voltage increase. I guess what I'm asking is whether or not I need to Do anything else in the bios to run @3.3ghz and 1600 Mhz? Once I'm sure I'm stable @ Stock settings and 1600 Ram, I would like to see a finished overclock of a constant 3.6-3.8 Ghz on the 1100t, at least until I upgrade my cooling loop.

Just ordered the FX-8120. Figured I would go with that rather than the 8150 for two reasons; Cant find the 8150 anywhere and the 8120 is less money. From what I saw on New Egg they hit 4+ Ghz on air cooling with the 8120 overclocked not just the turbo core setting. I'm looking forward to the better multitasking and hopefully better gaming performance then my PII x4 955 @ 3.61ghz. I will give you an update when its installed.

Let us know how it goes. I'm definitely eyeballing an 8150 when they are in stock. It's going to depend on what the general consensus is once some real enthusiasts have the chips and give us reviews on their luck with overclocking and performance increases over the X6 lineup.

I'll be waiting for the 8170 in Q1 2012 for a future CX stepping to see if they don't resolve some undisclosed bugs a la Phenom when they launched. I'll let you guys beta test this =]

Is it true that I heard Sabertooth performance slightly better than Crosshair V but less features and less slots?

The $185 price tag is attractive to me if the Bulldozer get fixed up with FX-8170 instead FX-8150.

Sabertooth is the pure performance board, Crosshair is ultra-high performance + some gimmicky features (that's my humble opinion).

haha.... wait... I'm not quite get between pure and ultra-high definition here...

Both board are top performer. Are you saying that Sabertooth is like buying a Maclaren GT and Crosshair V is more like Ferrari with good looking features style?

Yeah I was reading about issues, especially with single threaded apps. I'm willing to "beta" test this because its so inexpensive and by the time something bigger and better comes out tax returns should be hitting the bank accounts
To me as long as it does better in games then the 955 I have I will be happy. The multitasking performance is mainly looking forward to.
