I'm biased, but I am going to say yes.

Welcome to the family!

Prime95 still running smooth. This is absolutely incredible. I've never seen a more stable board. I forgot to mention I upped the NB voltage a bit because I'm running 4 DIMMS 6GB of RAM and a 450MHz FSB. Other then that, this has just worked. It scares me slightly.

It was so painful to get this speed on my 750...I am so impressed. Only con against the board was the first one I got from the Egg was DoA. Haven't had problems with this one however.

To be honest it has to do with a space-time continuance, or a Flux capacitor.

I have to bump the south bridge volts on mine, as I use up to 8 SATA drives

Good deal bro, let's see 24hrs Stable! Yes, you do need to bump the NB a hair over 4GB of RAM, or if you are using all 4 DIMMs for 4GB or less. I have 8GB and all my clocks have pushed NB.

At some point you may need to adjust you MCH and CPU Refs (GTLs). Here is a link regarding that. It is an important read through from very knowledgeable source.

The G.Skills are the way to go, they are proven on this board, cheaper, and you won't have CPU tower clearance issues.

I just bought this board and its awesome but theres one thing that seems a little odd. When i fire this thing up the heatsink takes about 4-5 seconds to start.

Anyone else had this happen or knows what this means.

Thanks much

Ya mine takes a couple tries to fully spin up, but it doesn't worry me too much. Been running six months without a problem with great temps and no instability, so I don't care
