Yeah I only go for 1 single powerful card, I just don't like the headache's that crossfire could bring, true some games could gain as much as 85% gain but some actually looses performance, it depends on how fast AMD develop fixes on the issue's with drivers.. but running single card eliminates that headache xD

I think I might go for the UD5, and I miss the built in Dolby Digital (I had a UD3), that thing got some great sound quality for something that is built in onboard, unlike the Formula V and Fatal1ty that has crappy onboard audio, not to mention Asrock doesn't even give you the full version of THX unlike Gigabyte, which gives you the full version of the Dolby Digital.

So everyone here seems to agree that the UD7 is the best motherboard for overclocking? I'm trying to hit 5Ghz myself wink.gif

Well not everyone, but I am a big proponent of the UD7 Rev 1.1

Forgive me if I sound like a broken record, but the only difference between the UD5 and UD7 are the PCI slots, correct? The UD7 has 6 PCI-E slots where as the UD5 has 5 PCI-E slots (only 1 x8), from what I'm reading.

That justifies a 30 dollar difference?

So it is done. I just pulled the trigger on an FX-8350 here in Canada for $194.67+tax:

http://www.directcanada.com/products/?sku=10360BD3789&vpn=FD8350FRHKBOX&manufacture=AMD

Total came to $223.28 including shipping insurance ($2.92) and free ground shipping. As far as I can tell, this was quite a good deal.

Now to deal with the motherboard. I think I'm going to try out the BIOSTAR TA990FXE AMD 990FX after all, as I can get it for $109.99 locally today, and I'm grabbing a matched pair of Corsair Vengeance DDR3-1600 CL9s for $34.99 ($10 off instant rebate). If the BIOSTAR sucks, I have 15 days to return it without restocking fee or any questions asked. That should be enough time to at least confirm whether it's defective and decent. Hopefully, my 8350 won't take too long to get here, but in the meantime, I can use my old PII X2 550BE to test out the board and memory.

Thanks for all the help, all. Will post results as soon as I have something to say.

Isn't CPU/NB volt limit determined by the motherboard?

While I haven't used that specific Biostar motherboard I have used 2 boards from them previously. They both had to be replaced within weeks. I don't trust Biostar. Maybe their higher end boards are better but I used two budget $80 Biostar boards and nothing but problems for me. Maybe just bad luck or maybe they don't put much into their budget models but I wont buy from Biostar ever again because of it.
