Yes. P03 is the current BIOS version for the eVGA 780i. It was mentioned by an eVGA tech in the eVGA forum today that BIOS version P04 was incoming.

Hope it fixes the known BSOD issues when using certain (most) optical SATA drives.

Hmm I guess I should be glad I don't have any BSOD with my sata drives lol... I think I'm using a samsung and a lite-on dvd writer.

Can someone help me with this southbridge cooling selection: http://www.overclock.net/intel-mothe...l#post3602682?

My Viper John northbridge water block and MOSFET heatsinks will arrive any day.

Thanks,

None of the above. Try the thermaltake extreme spirit II. I used a pair on the infamous Asus 680i inferno board for a year. They look good, perform well,and are easy to install.

I'm using the 2nd option and it looks good, but performs like crap. I've remounted it twice now with no improvement. I'm going to be shopping around for another SB solution soon. I'll let you know if I find anything worth using. That #1 option is recommended by John and he says it does pretty well. I might try that next.

That unit seems to be a rather tall northbridge unit. How do you clear the video card.

Thanks for the input. The Enzotech looked better and seemed to be more focused over the southbridge chip. However it has 40% less air flow and weighs 30% less. That you find it inadequate indicates John's recommendation must be the way to go.

How did you measure southbridge temperature of the system under load?

It doesn't get anywhere near it. I've used 2 (one on nb and sb) with a pair of 8800gtx without clearance issues.
