I figure since the big word is that the AMD 800's won't be out until Q1 2010, I mise well decide on something now since mobos most likely wont change much until then.
a good chip+a good board= greatness. id say from my experience of amd and nforce chipsets, it doesnt matter - so long as the outcome gives u a HIGH STABLE OC. as provened, that 1 extra core doesnt make much of a difference. esp when gaming. but if YOU MUST have the 4th core then..you wanna swap setups? ill take your 3.9 over my 3.6 x4 anyday. don't get fooled by the amount of options that you can "see" in the bios, what matters is how many MHZ are you able to achive over someone else. if OPTIONS is the 1st priority for anyone, then we'd all be looking at DFI boards now. but its..quality and value that most of us are interested in. DFI by all means is no joke..they are king, since the 939 era..each and everyone of their boards are so top - that im speechless in terms of their engineering process...but yea, you get the point. STICK WITH IT!

I am thinking of adding a fan at the back of my cpu cooler (it only has intake atm) and maybe another intake to my case
leaving a lil gap/ opening of the side panel..it doesnt necessarily has to be OFF, just a lil opening will help too..because sometimes airs dont circulate fast eunff in the case with just TUNEL setup.Edited by elito - 6/22/09 at 12:20pm
