The real question will I want to abandon my 8 core Piledrivers ?

I did not go for intel because 30% more performance at 90% more cost was not needed.[/quote]

Exactly. My money is best spent elsewhere.

4.7 ghz prime stable is about the best the GD 65 would do with a very good supporting cast. GD -80 will run daily tasks at 5 ghz and do so with slightly less quality cooling than the ASUS's , but it takes more finesse. Also the ASUS boards have safety's built into them that will save themselves in the event of overheating/overvolting , the GD-80 relies on the operator to know just how far you can push it.

If you want the best chance to hit 5ghz prime stable safely, the Asus CHV-Z or Sabertooth are the most practical choice for most people.

I've ran the GD-80 at 5 ghz for daily use now for over 2 years, gaming etc and it has had no problems at all. If you have an e-series or low VID chip, these boards are very well suited for them. I've gotten the highest validations on the GD-80 of any of my AM3+ boards. However if you have fantastic cpu cooling the CHV-Z's will do better at long duration stress tests at 5 ghz +,where it's LLC function will compensate for electrical inefficiency caused by heat.

Meanwhile I've had to RMA all but one of the CHV-Z's I have had (4). Silly things such as broken traces, bios asshattery, and one had a direct short somewhere on the board.

I like the GD-80 best, but it's not for everyone.

A good alternative for the money would have been the Gigabyte 990FXA ud5 for $119 after rebate at the egg the last couple of days.

I am not planning on buying a €160+ AM3+ Board, I was thinking about the GD-65 because it costs €115, and I can easily sell my M5A97 EVO R2 for about €100

Also, my chip COULD do 5.1 GHz at about 1.51 V, if it wasn't for the M5A97 EVO R2

EDIT: sorry for double post. I hate android.

That's a little bit of a bold statement without verifying it in a better board.... no offence of course.
I myself, have personally verified my own stability at 4.9GHz with 1.464v, and am almost positive it will do over 5GHz with more voltage on a better board, but I don't have a Sabertooth laying around to prove those claims.

It the war against heat and power, I can only speculate that my chip will do over 5GHz
I too, decided against spending a lot on a motherboard, and I will likely never reach 5GHz daily stable because of that.
I was happy with 4.9GHz for the meesly $76 I spent on my board though....

5GHz Stable = A good Chip + A good Board + A good Cooling + A good Know-how.

Take one off, and the conditiins are not met.

That's a well-known thing, that is why I was asking if the GD65 is any better than the m5a97 evo r2 for overclocking at 4.9+ GHz

As far as im concerned its well worth the wait and its a day 1 buy for me biggrin.gif

Just need to get a better loop together

Everybody has different needs and wants, me personally i could do with the extra CPU power and besides......i want to do a direct comparison between Zen, Steamroller (Kaveri) and Piledriver for myself.

And now the waiting game begins! biggrin.gif
