I just ordered this board with an E8400 and 8800GT, looking forward to sharing my new scores with all of you.

Third, I know I can take the screen off and I probably should. I was going to wait until I started overclocking, but I think I'll be doing it sooner. Thanks + rep
No problem at all. The only reason I thought of it is because my buddy's daughter has an IPOD and she actually walked in and said "Oh, let me unplug it before the computer boots up" and showed me that it literally won't boot with it in. I also thought I crashed my brother's CPU once because I couldn't reboot, realizing later it was because of a thumb drive I had plugged in. Upon further investigation, it seems to be because of the BIOS / motherboard.

As I'm awaiting my shipment.. I was reading some reviews on this board and it doesn't have Raid, says one of the reviews. Is this true or can you "hack" it to set up a Raid?

If you've still got time, check out the G92 8800GTS.

Good luck to you sir, I'm sure that chip will be a lot of fun to overclock. Be sure to post some figures and such as soon as you can!

The motherboard does not have a raid controller, which simply means you would have to buy a seperate raid controller card in order to set up a raid. Not really a huge concern.

THANKS!!!! ANY ADVICE WOULD BE GREAT

Well, you're running Vista and it uses ~1.6ghz itself pretty consistently. I'd look into upgrading your RAM. You can also look into something thats stable at 4-4-4-12. In terms of the processor, you're probably not gonna get too much more out of it.

I don't know what kind of RAM you're using, but one thing to keep in mind is that just because an overclock is stable doesn't mean its necessarily the best. Tightening the timings too much or speeding it up too much may cause thrashing. For your situation, I would suggest keeping in mind what your safe limits are, and start over again somewhat. Bring your CPU up as high as you have it and test benchmarks a long the way. Do the same with the memory. Then, put them together and adjust within a small range again to ensure you're running at the best compability between all the system components.

Well, like I said, not a huge worry: they're $12-$25 on Newegg for decent ones.

I have the same memory, but 4x1gb, and cpu, and motherboard (obviously). In an attempt to try to help you out, I will post my motherboard screens exactly and you can see if theres anything out of place (I'm using F6 as well.)
