Lol, this guy doesn't know very much or was drunk when typing.
|And also i will include for free a XFI HD 4670 1GB SDDR3 vid card
It's not only a video card but an awesome soundcard to boot.

I stopped using asus cause I got tired of the crap hit or miss quality of their boards. Gigabyte has been amazing to use, never an issue. So how does DFI compare?
I was going to go with DFI for my AM3 build but after discussing it with several people that have the DK version of the board it seems that the BIOS is not really overclocker friendly like their 939 boards (which happen to be the best for OCing a 939).

I was able to be stable at 2.83GHz
anyone out there got any pointers?
Which cooler are you using and what kind of temps are you seeing @ 2.83?
If you don't have it already, use Coretemp
to monitor your temps. It's more accurate than the software that came with your board.

Depends on what was damaged. That picture is too blurry to see what is exactly damaged.
And yes there was a guy that repaired his CPU after damaging the chip.

I think for AM3, MSI
and gigabyte sort of took over though.
Fixed for ya.
I haven't seen too many people with Biostar AM3 boards. I see MSI more often. And quite honestly I'm really happy with mine. Their BIOS is very robust with LOTS of overclocking features. The only thing that I wish that it had was more memory dividers. Other than that I'm very happy with it.
A little update on my stuff, I just added one of my GSO's to my sig rig for PhysX.
I even managed to find a crack so I can use the latest driver (195.62). Batman looks perty
Now I'm going to have to re-install all of my games that utilize it.
One kind of odd thing, it didn't seem to change my 3dm06 score at all. Isn't it supposed to? Or is that just in vantage?
