Nice picture!
I can get it to post past the hole, but as you can see with the sun, I'm running around screaming with my head on fire because of my stock heatsink.

Awesome FSB hole diagram, stupid thread.
I did my homework, but I was selling my old rig for the money to upgrade so I had to buy locally, and it was either this or the P5K-SE, and I needed the second IDE channel (I know its sad, but I have so many IDE HDDs that I use for linux and music storage).

Hmmm Im running a P5N-E SLi with a e6750 and bumped it up to 3.00GHz (375FSB)on stock cooling and stock voltage...ran orthos for 2+ hours and didnt see the core temp go over 56 or so...not much of a OC for now, getting a new CPU cooler and a fan for the northbridge before I attempt to see how much I can milk out of it. Awesome picture though LoL!

An aftermarket heatsink should be a piece of required (or rather expected) hardware to be honest.

Oh...and I feel your pain on the extra IDE header. I just can't let go of my old 40GB Seagate. 2MB buffer...oh yeah.
