This is the board I actually do want but newegg did not seem to have it. If know a place for a good price I will probably jump on it.

And I have no problem with the ram settings I have a rdx200 now so I know what I am getting into. Also its not that the AC64 Pro will hit the ram its that the AC64 Pro cools the ram. Also my Scythe Mine came today.

I know that works but I thought it ran SLI in 8x/4x then instead of the 8x/8x of the SLI board?

I'm not sure, but I think there's a stapler mod for this, or is there also those switch thingies on the Ultra-D's?

Possibly the best overclocking board for socket 939.
Ya, what he said, I have head some nasty things about the expert series.

Well if you do plan on getting a DFI board, the only help your going to get, if you run into any type of trouble, is from the members here and maybe a few other forums. DFI's OCing tech support is allllll gone

My Ultra-D is probably going to be my last DFI board, its a great board but I don't want to buy from a company that has no tech support.

I have never asked DFI Street for help on my DFI board now. I ask here if there is an issue. I am sure the great members there are also members here I dont doubt. I will keep buying DFI boards as they are just solid boards with great memory options.

And no SLi is not a must as I use a ATi card, the Ultra D looks good I want to avoid the cpu ram config it has but if I must I must. If anyone sees a cdx3200 for a good price by all means post it!

What's wrong with that config (although it's not the usual layout). I never heard complaints about it, and plenty users own that board. It definately is a great overclocker.

Well its that my cooler then cools my ram the way it is now. Also I bought a Scythe Mine and the way the clamps sit the mine will go south to north on that mobo. I want it east to west style to flow with the P180B.

If the board is going to give me better results I probably will jump on it, there is a member on OC.net who wants a to trade his Ultra-D for my mobo I have now.

The trade might be a good solution.

It gives you the opportunity to test it out If you don't like it, I don't see a real loss there.
