You can adjust the fan from BIOS as followed 60%, 70%, 80%, 90% or you can for example use Zalman ZM-RC56 fan controller to controll the fan. (I use that controller sometimes, I like them, they are nice).

If you don´t like a noisy and high temp system you should consider to go with water.

I run me NB in the same loop as both me CPU and GPU, when the system is under full load my temp on the NB with 1,51volt are around 25-28, I had 1,71 when I pushed for some low Performance Levels and got ~30 (note, I have a 8800GTX in the loop), so I say go for water.


As microman wrote "they are both very good mobo's ".

Have you read these articles, LCT

Everytime I think about watercooling I think "MESSY!" so many things can go wrong, and if it leaks, many components will fry

I know, I fryed one of my 8800GTX because of a leak from my CPU block, it cracked due to my pump stalled and my E6600@3.6 overheated but I´m still with water.

Have decided for which board yet or do you want to wait for this one.

That board looks slick! I'll wait

Yea, you can always wait for that next thing. I maybe get one myself just for that slick look.

Here you can read about Maximus II

http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/200...s-ii-formula/3

You can read about it at overclock3d dot net, I can´t get that link to work in this post thou

And here is the new ASUS P5Q3 Deluxe

http://www.anandtech.com/mb/showdoc.aspx?i=3309

But I don´t know if that P45 can beat X48 and although is seems like i´t have 16 phase pwm , Anandtech isn´t that glad about it.

Quote:
The P5Q3 may report the use of a 16-phase PWM but we know better. Although ASUS design engineers have added a lot of extra chokes and MOSFETS, the overall capacity of the power delivery circuit remains comparable to their competitors' more modest 8-phase designs. One thing's for certain, we can all agree that more phases do not necessarily make for a more stable power subsystem. Although we did not experience any problems with this particular solution we would rather see ASUS concentrate their efforts on designing an entirely new circuit based on a true 6-phase PWM.

And with P45 there is a new Southbridge (Intel ICH10R) and it´s a little different regarding Crossfire compare to P35, X38 and X48, here´s what Anandtech wrote.

Quote:
In addition, P45 provides full PCI Express (PCIe) 2.0 interconnect compliance, which increases the maximum theoretical bandwidth of any installed PCIe 2.0-enabled component by twofold. However, unlike X48, P45 only provides 16 PCIe 2.0 lanes, so AMD/ATI CrossFire setups will only receive half the bandwidth relative to an X38/X48 board. How much that actually impacts dual-GPU performance is still a topic of debate, as the PCIe bandwidth generally does not seem to be the major limiting factor.

This brings us to the main difference between P35 and P45. Unlike P35, P45's Northbridge PCIe 2.0 ports can be configured for either 1x16 or 2x8 operation, which is different than past mainstream/performance segment chipsets like P35 and P965 where it was impossible to directly connect more than one graphics card to Northbridge PCIe resources. In this respect, P45 provides something new, allowing discerning gamers on a budget the opportunity to experience multi-GPU 3D graphics acceleration without the need for an absolute top-end motherboard. Given time, P45 platforms could become quite the powerhouse when it comes to assembling an inexpensive CrossFire(X) gaming system.

O, one more thing, you can always wait for Intel´s Nehalem
