Well finally got it put together. Now that I'm not getting interupted every 20 seconds
Here's the link
Also, just for kicks and giggles I put on the stock cooler.
it actually does ...somewhat OK. lol.
As for the OC dial, you can actually set it to what the increments are, at least that is what I gathered from the manual.
Setting the GD70 up was a beeze, I like the layout for the most part with the exeption of the FDD port. Although, most people wont even use it. I only have to, to set up RAID in XP.
SO far so good. As for the GD70 itself, I have read some mixed reviews. Some say it was just as good as the DFI, others have put it right up there with the UD5P.
Overall, the board looks very good. The BIOS has lots of features, I haven't even begun to delve into the overclocking options, and there does seem to be quite a bit. Also, the manual was pretty good. Definitely better than what I'm used to. It actually explains stuff
(well some of it anyway). However, it didn't really cover RAID. The downloadable one does in fact go deeper in to RAID and whatnot.
The only thing that peeved me about the board, which I would have liked to know before I bought it was that when running CFX with 2 cards, you have to use the 1st and 3rd slots. I would've much rather have been able to use the first 2.
Tator, if you find that more in depth review send it to me too. Edited by BlackOmega - 10/10/09 at 12:08pm
