Hi everyone, new member, have read through most of this thread with interest.

Am waiting for the P55 boards to go retail and weigh up wether to go the i5 route or the AM3 route for a new Windows 7 build.

Weighing up the AM3 route, this board seems to tick all the right boxes, apart from a few outstanding queries.

I would run this board with a X4 955 BE, 8GB (4 x2) 1600 Corsair DDR3, and 2x 500GB SATA2 HD's.

The main questions if anyone can shed light on, are;

Will this board run 8GB 1600MHz quite happily? I would probably OC the CPU to 3.5GHz with either air, or a Corsair Hydro H50. The exact RAM sticks would be Corsair TW3X4G1600C9D 4GB kit x2. These are listed on Corsairs site as compatible for this board. Spec is 9-9-9-24 1.8v.

Second question is RAID. Having read a few reviews of the board, people seem to have problems with RAID via both the JMicron controller and the SB750 controller (eg. http://www.hardocp.com/article/2009/..._motherboard/3)

I would be looking to set up RAID 0 with 2x 500GB SATA2 Drives, with best possible performance off either controller.
2x optical SATA DVD drives would also be connected to the SB750 controller.

Thanks for any info owners can provide.

Did it boot with 1600 stick[s] at BIOS defaults though?

I'm seeing a lot of posts that AM3 has trouble with anything over 1333 RAM?

Hi Guys

I'm thinking of buying this board for my first (ever) AMD build.
Have chosen CPU & RAM (PhII X4 995 Black & Corsair Domi 1600), just picking board now. Got it down to between the MSI and the M4A79T Deluxe.

I use my rig mainly for gaming and the odd bit of video work.

Any thoughts on this board for gaming? And vs. the M4A79T in general?

It runs cool and stable for gaming. Im a retired wow player and I played wow with my 810 and my 4850 (at stock clocks) and I was getting 120 fps in 5 man instances and 50-60 fps in 40man raids with all settings on high cept for shadows(medium) The board will handle any graphics card I would suggest a 4890 or 4870x2...... But over all the board is solid for anyhting that has to do with AM3.. OC, Gaming, Video, Just everything you can think of.....
