If the board doesn't work, I could still sell it on ebay for about 25% less than what I bought it for.
I dunno how many people are going to buy a bargain motherboard from ebay that does not work and sold as is for even that price

I hear you though, sounds like good deals to me. Esp. the video card since I put an aftermarket cooler on mine.

What I've learned about this board:
vdroop occurs everywhere in substantial amounts. Every time I ran into a wall, I looked into voltage issues and it led back to vdroop. sometimes as many as 3 steps in the bios cpu voltage selection produce the same voltages under load/idle. This may have to do with my power supply, but before anyone answers just confirm this by loading the processor for a few seconds at each voltage increment. I got memtest errors on pc8500 memory with the following scenarios: memory at +.4v and lower, fsb +1v, mch +.1v | memory at +.5v, fsb normal, mch +.1v. | +.5v puts my memory at 2.18v.

I'm sorta glad I bought this board, but at the same time I wish I would have spent the extra money for a mid-level board. Same with my power supply. I figured I'd cut corners in a few areas, and they ended up being the areas I'm most disappointed in. Live and learn. Good board for moderate overclocking, bout it IMHO.

You said your memory is DDR2-667. Your FSB is 333. The smallest memory multiplier you can use would then be 2.0 x 333 = 666. Therefore, if you raised the FSB any more, you would be raising the DDR clock higher than 666, which may cause instability. It's all linked.
Ahh, that's what had me confused then. I've tried getting over 3ghz using the 10x multi as well. Right now I use the 333 for the simple fact that it maxes my memory out at a 1:1 at my current known cpu max.

Anyone know if there's a way to check the other board voltages with software? I think I saw someone tell someone else that you couldn't check memory voltages other than through the bios.

Perhaps Im an idiot... but where are all the memory timings listed in the bios? I cant seem to find them....

The M I T (or whatever the abbreviated thing is) only lists CPU stuff and has 1 memory option... lol ?

you gotta hit control f1 in the main menu and when you enter the MIT it will be diff.
