P35 and X38. hmmm

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So how many people here bought the P35? How well does it overclock and whatnot?

I'm hearing people say to wait for the X38 because it'll have a lot more features and stability along with PCI-e 2.0

I'm also wondering if Nvidia has anything cooking past 680i?

I heard that P35 has PCI-e 2.0 with a BIOS update. From what I have read so far, the P35 is doing really well so far and haven't heard of too many issues.

I think PCIe 2.0 involves more power through the slot, doesn't seem like something that could be done through a BIOS flash.


X38 is supposed to be a better overclocker than P35, but if you look at boards like the DFI P35 board with its 600 FSB on stock cooling, how much better do we really need?
