Thanks for the review Windwithme! I've always loved reading them and looking at the excellent photography. I can't wait for more reviews and articles from you. Keep up the excellent work.

I was looking at that too, because some of the cpu-z pics had the CPU at only 1400mhz...

Too bad the board has horrid PCI-E placement if you wish to do Crossfire. Nice review though.

Is APM the same as Cool N Quiet?

Or with BD do you have to run it at 4.5Ghz+ constantly, even when just browsing the Internet? If so, that will kill your power bill....

APM sets a limit on maximum power draw for the chip, have to disable it for higher overclocks that exceed the power ceiling.

I have yet to see these astronomically high power bills from BD users... APM I think causes the BD to downthrottle, which hinders performance in benchmarks... or so I think
