There are sooo many, very iffy things being said in this thread and taken at face value with NO proof. Typical.

Not far enough to be comfortable.

And what's worse is that some of our best and most respected posters are participating.

but either way is vdroop really that big of a deal? usually the voltage settings go up above and beyond what most cpu's that we use will go and to me if I have to set it at 1.55 to get 1.5v at the cpu vs 1.5125v to get 1.5v to the cpu it isn't that big of a deal to me or am I missing something?
Vdroop isn't a problem because of the voltage cap. It is more a problem because of the voltage fluctuation. See, the voltage will stay constant at low load. But when you increase the load (amps) the voltage will fluctuate. That is where the problem is.

The problem with SLI on the X38 (or any other chipset) is the licensing issue with Nvidia. See, if Nvidia granted SLI lincenses to Intel, what do you think would happen to 680i sales?
Ahhh I see, thanks.

Oh no, I just brought a P35 to replace the old P3 I'm using now and am still waiting to set it up. Hope the prices aren't over $300 than maybe I'll go for it. At least my parts will be new and reusable.

They won't be over $300.

The X38 is definitely not for a budget system. It will carry a high price point and offer relatively few advantaged over the P35 for single GPU / air cooled systems.

They are naked too! (No heatsinks)

I don't know which will be better. The Intel DX38BT or the DFI X38-T3R.

The DFI has digital PWMs and a LCD error code panel. Unfortunately though, the DFI will probably also come with a silly looking heatsink roller coaster.
