Testing Thread here with some nice pics Xtremesystems - Commando Results by Tony and Andre
apologies if you've already had them
will be running it with a 6600 & these which arrived today.CellShock DDR2 1000 (PC8000) 4-4-4-12 2.2v
There are 2 things that I will watch with the build:-
1) whether board will boot with my memory, Have seen many threads recenly about default bios vdimm of 1.8~1.9v not being sufficient to boot. So i need to watch out 4 that, if necessary may need to get a cheao ddr2 module to get me into bios & change mem voltage.
2) i have a lian-li v2000B+ great case but is ATX inverted now virtually every mobo supplier other than asus hacve said that their latest boards will run inverted i have checked with abit, EVGA both ok. I think i'll just have to test this mobo b4 i finalise the build. I have after market coolers that i can use if need be. Evercool VC-RE
& Swiftech MCX159
. As a matter of routine now i always re paste the chipset etc., b4 installing a new board now.
Subject to these 2 things i'm pretty sure all is great.
