However, this is what I'll be using daily until my x58 is rma'd. =o) Definitely a frequency improvement at near/same volts.

What are you using for cooling and what are your temps like?

Just got the board and I love it so far. Great layout, looks nice. Haven't tried OCing with it yet though.

You can add me to the club if you like.

Lol, I did the exact same thing with the stock AMD fan.

O that's pretty neat. The DK fan (89 CFM) I have on my Big Typhoon overhangs right there and provides that area with plenty of airflow. The supplemental fan I put on is blowing more at the SB/NB specifically.

I didn't know that you could use a different slot as the primary. Makes me wonder if I can use slots 2 & 4 for crossfire.

Blue slot 2 & 4 are 8x/8x. Blue slot 1 & 3 are 16x/16x.
