That is an amazing deal. If it was that price over here I would buy another.

In response to the post above, I also use the 8 pin power connector with this board.

I just placed an order for a second one. To bad the deal is in store pick up only. I shall see here in a few minutes if the stores still have any available.

Edit: Store had it in stock. Now to arange to pick up that used EVGA GTS 450 SC for $100.00 just down the street from the store.

This has been a good past couple days. Was able to get my 4x2GB RAM to ddr3 1600 at 8-8-8-24-1t with my 25% drive strength adjustments, AND that I could boost cpu-nb up from where I was and be SAFE. Decided to throw my 4ghz (200x20) OC from 1.55vcore to 1.425vcore, and I'm perfectly stable OCCT Linpack so far, bout 5 mins in tho, . Temps are crazy improved, from 55C load to 48C load, and my loop has been on all day, SO... Want to vmod my 5870 now (also on water) and go for 1100core, and shoot for more on memory.

I got them BIOS pics, I just haven't edited them to post yet.

EDIT: 24mins stable, UHHHHHH SUCKAS! lol

K, pic 1, I manually set all the SPD timings Memory-Z would show me, just in case auto was doing something else.

Pic 2 is just the timings setup, you can see all the manual sub timings i set, all the rest I'm not messing with right now, lol. *** is all that?

Pic 3 is blurry, and I was actually experiencing first post / boot probs at 1.5x for each drive strength option here. Im actually at 1.25x on all these options now, and having. no problems as of yet. I was getting error code '08' and '2A or 2B', I'm not exactly sure, lol.

Read it and weep

are you using a reference or non-reference 5870. Either way I have a SW solution to your volt-mod needs

Its a reference Sapphire 5870 with ASUS bios, and full cover DD 5870 only block, so EVERYTHING is gettign good cooling. I want to volt mod both vcore GPU and vRAM, and get the most I can. All the memory ICs and GPU have IC7 diamond, and its mint, does 1ghz stable at 1.350vcore. Got MORE than enough headroom on temps.

Since I dropped my cpu vcore, and let my system power down for awhile, Im idle 28-29C vs 32-33 before, so w00t, load temps are probably down dramatically. Boosted cpu-nb voltage to 1.4, gonna try to OC RAM slightly on FSB, 201-204 range prolly...

if you don't mind, would you please give me the newegg link for your 4x2GB RAM to ddr3 1600 good sir? 'cause I'd like to buy one just like those that you had. And it's very difficult for me to find it here, thx

the difference is core voltage and stock clocks. Just make sure it is a C3 revision.
