I'm a tad Jealous, though, I do feel like a Rarity now according to their profile of the ENFP

) And I don't even have as many MHz to cover with DDR as I do with DDR3.
Again, I think that's an actual chip limitation with the newer IMC's. I could be wrong, But I haven't seen any board that supports more than DDR3 800, DDR3 1066, DDR3 1333, DDR3 1600mhz
I think the Asus M4A79T-Deluxe has an 1800mhz setting...possibly. I could be wrong though.
I haven't had a chance to re-visit most of the boards (A thing I hate about reviewing) as new BIOS come out and really make some boards so much nicer. And could break a stalemate of "which to buy"

But in reality, Black Editions have unlocked CPU & CPU-NB (IMC) Multi's, so overclocking those are pretty easy. But on the AM3 platform, you are locked to a guaranteed stable of 1333mhz, so in order to draw the most out of your system, that HT clock is necessary. As it can control the world.
