I wouldn't worry about it. The only part that will touch the board is plastic... all of the metal parts of the connector are contained on the inside.

I have a couple questions about the DS3L...

The board supports PCI Express x16 video cards. I'm currently running the GeForce 8800 GTS 320 MB which is x16. If I upgrade to one of the newer cards that run on PCI Express 2.0 or whatever, will it still work with this board or am I going to have to get a new one?

Also, are there any good guides out there to overclocking this board? Also, how do I figure out which BIOS version I have?

CPU-Z will report the BIOS version... Just select the BIOS tab on it.

OC'ing this board is very similar to any other... Raise the FSB in small increments, bump up the voltage when you need to. This is a pretty stable board, so OC'ing up to around 3.0-3.2 on a Q6600 should be attainable very easily.

Also, I can't definitively say about PCI Express 2.0, but nothing is mentioned in the manual about it. That leads me to believe it is an unsupported feature, otherwise it would be, well, featured. If I understand 2.0 correctly, it is backwards compatible, but will run at x16 speed, so just the same as a 1.0 card. I guess if you got a 2.0, it would be ready for a new mobo, but video cards become obsolete even faster than motherboards.

Buying for the future = impossible.

I seem to be experiencing a lot of trouble trying to use the 8x multiplier. I cannot get windows to successfully boot up at 8x400 even with high voltage (1.4->1.47).

My memory timings are 5-5-5-15 and the memory multiplier is usually set at 2 or 3. The memory is running at 2V.

Right now using it at 3ghz with 9x333 1.25V (V in bios) and Prime95'd it for 12 hrs. I can do 9x356 (3.2ghz) with around 1.3V (bios), but it seems less stable. I can get computer to boot up at(3.3ghz) 9x370 @1.4V (bios) but prime fails pretty fast. I have tried to boot up at 3.4 with 9x380 with 1.475V (bios) but booting fails. I know that the way I set the Vcore in bios will be lowered (vdroop) in windows. So should I simply continue to pump up Vcore in bios? I am a bit hesitant to set it to 1.5v or higher, but is it necessary? I have a Tuniq Tower 120 and temps are not a problem.

Any ideas on settings I can change or input on your Q6600 running above 3.2ghz stable with FSB,Vcore, and ram timings gladly appreciated.
1.1v in CPU-Z is very low even with droop. My CPU-Z says 1.264v (1.3125v in BIOS)@ 3.4GHz. You might be getting some really high droop. I would forget your RAM and just run it at 1:1 and stock timings until you get your CPU overclock satisfied. 2v should be fine for your memory. I can boot at 3.9GHz, but I might just have a lucky chip or something. 3.4GHz should definitely be attainable for you though.

These PCI-E 2.0 cards will work on this MOBO. PCI-E 2.0 is backwards compatable. Currently the only boards on the market with PCI-E 2.0 are the X38 chipsets. X48 is coming soon and is even listed on Newegg already.

Just tried running it 1:1, with original ram timings, could not get it to boot up at 3.4 (9x378). Tried your 1.3125 voltage then kept upping it, but Vista wouldn't boot. I wonder if I have something wrong set in the bios? I have EIST disabled, and PCI Express setting is at 100. As far as hardware, the only real anomaly I have is a 7300 LE card to hold me over until I can get an 8800, that couldn't possibly be factoring in in anyway, right?

Yeah it's disabled now. Anyone know if the F7 or F8a updates for the bios provide any OC'ing improvement over the F6?

I didn't notice any improvement, but you might as well update to the F7 at least. I was also wondering, when you go up to 1.45v in BIOS, what does CPU-Z say for volts?
