And you see something wrong with that? I am pretty sure the the Gene-Z is better than your motherboard.

Back on topic:
Yeh, the Gene-Z is great...so many features though, that it is too hard to figure them all out.

I actually have two HD6990's that I am going to run on it. I don't need all the PCI slots or SATA ports, so the Gene works for me. You will also notice I am only running a 2500k, this is because I don't need anything more for gaming. Also, I just installed it into my MM Ascension case and it surprisingly looks good.

It's running @ 8x. No loss in performance though.

I have a choice to make here. I absolutely love this board, super stable, easy to oc, etc. I am now thinkg about its big brother, the MIVE-Z for better compatability with the Silver Arrow. Not sure I want to spend the extra cash for similar performance. That or I return the Silver Arrow and get an H80 or similar, but I love the Silver Arrow too!!!!

Then i am also thinking about the Temjin TJ08-E as an alternative to the FT02, since I was browsing the club here on the forums and people seem to love it.

I hate buying and then doing my research afterwards. LOL. At least there is no restocking fee where I shop.
