Latest bios, all that, really unimpressed so far.

For now, X38 gets me 4.5 stable no probs.

Best of luck ratt, but for now things look bleak for 780i with respect to QX9650. Take note that Asus isn't really pushing their P5N-t deluxe into the US market in a real hurry..

This might interest you..

Thx nuc, appreciate the info.
There were some encouraging posts at EVGAs site. But like most new mobos, more bad than good. I won't get my hopes up.

Question for Litlratt, As you can see in my sig I have the P5N32-E board and have been looking at my upgrading options. I wanted to go with a 45nm quad but they will not work with my 680I. So my question for you is could I oc a Q6600 go to 3.2 on air cooling and be stable with my current board? Then I would only have tobuy 2 (8800Gt cards ) and the Q6600. I new to overclocking so thats why I'm asking the experts. Thanks for your time and help.

You don't even need a Quad as i for one have seen no benefits of using one in games as yet over an E6600.

Seriously, the Quad thing is really overated imo. Penryn is too unless all you care about is benchmarks. And lets be honest, how many of you purchase a CPU based primarily on benchmark results? Too many....Gaming performance matters for me more than anything.
You realize you're speaking from conjecture rather than direct experience (unless I'm mistaken).

First, show me an E6600 that does 4.5ghz prime stable under 60C with water cooling, and if you can produce that, then tell me you won't see that performance manifested in any game available today. I just came off a beautiful E6850 that would do 3.85 24/7 and that was a wonderful chip for gaming. The difference between 3.85 and 4.5 is very real in terms of fps as well as smoothness.

You're right about quads and gaming in general for now, but i spend alot of time with FSX which now after sp1 does in fact utilize all four cores. My 9650 makes a huge difference in this instance.

However, is it worth an additional ~$800 US for the LEVEL of increased performance?? That's a subjective decision and for most gamers most likely not. Did I buy my 9650 for benchmarks?? No. Do I run them?? Absolutely.

I plunked down alot of cash for a chip that for now won't allow me to run SLI. Am I completely happy? Nope.

But the level of performance difference is very substantial 65nm vs 45nm..
The E8xxx chips should prove to be awesome.

Bottom line is that gaming at > 4ghz is very different, It will definately be worth a look in the next few months. I made the decision to not wait and spend the $$ to get an early look with a single gpu, and I'm VERY impressed. I can't wait for SLI to materialize with regard to the 45nm quads..

Hmm, the EVGA 780i works fine with your chip and SLI and if I'm not mistaken the board is only a fews bucks more than the maximus

My friends,

My ASUS Maximus arrived this afternoon, and I've just installed Vista. I managed this right off the bat:

If I'm not mistaken, both the XFX and EVGA boards are "reference" boards no?

Overclocking on the XFX board was poor (< 4ghz ) and unstable at mid 1.5's (vcore).

What I'm saying at this point is the board and/or the bios has not matured to the point where I will spend the money for it.

Please share your experience with the QX9650 and the EVGA 780i. Maybe I just had a bad board, (although my friend's QX6850 seemed to do fine).

Your 6850 should clock higher and produce less heat than what a q6600 will. It seems to be luck of the draw with quads on this board.
I'd say your chances of getting to 3.0-3.2 with a quad are good, not guaranteed.

Thanks Litlratt, would I benefit more by going with a X38 or the 780I mobo? I was thinking of the Q9450 but was going to settle for a Q6600. Right now I know my two 8600GT 's are the bottleneck of my system. So I either go with the X38 and a 8800GTS ( G92 ) and wait for the Q9450 or the 780I and 2 8800GT ( G92 ). I want to go to a quad but should I settle for a Q6600 or wait on the Q9450? Thank you so much for your time and help.
