No problem getting >16000 in 3DMark11. 1250 core/1530 memory.

Very few people seem to need it in a dual card crossfire or SLI configuration, I'd imagine with 3 cards or in extreme overclocks it would be necessary.

Is the extra sata power on the mobo? Or is it specifically with the 7950?

Edit
I see it under the 24 pin now... Same question... Is there any harm in plugging it in for a two card config? Also will it help any?

Built into the motherboard. It's right next to the SATA ports.

I have it connected because I had a power cable running right next to it. Trying it disconnected with SLI GTX275's (I doubt these really put much strain on the PCIe slots) and up to 4.9ghz with 16GB of 1866 CL10 ram and it didn't seem to make any short term difference in stability or anything. Nothing really too extreme here, but it must be there for a reason.

Would it be of any aid to a pair of 7970 sapphire vapor-x's that are unstable over 1200? I didn't know it existed. Was used to the molex above the pcie slots so i did not think the board had one.

I couldn't hurt, it's untended purpose it to supply extra power to PCIe cards to aid in stability.

Got me a UD5H at MicroCenter for $150 open box. No issues at all. Turns out a 3570k problem I had (where it would show temps up to 105C) was due to my other mobo. Do not have any pictures as of now, but I'll get some soon!

As far as drivers go, which ones should I get that I absolutely need? Should I install them in a particular order?

Pulled the trigger on a UD5H for $212 total on amazon.ca.

A question. What has been the most stable bios for you guys?

Currently running F13, only issue I have is that my mouse is inverted in the bios.

Same issue for me in F14 too.

And I spoke too soon about having no problems. I went to get something to eat for an hour and saw my computer had blue screen'd for some reason. Didn't read all of it but I got that it was 'ID 1033.' Maybe because I haven't installed Windows Update yet?
