Please forgive me, but the term "OP". What does it mean? (I'm not too good with shortcut/abbreviations)

Okay, tried your suggestion, and im using DCT 0, but still got the cmos checksum bad error, and I only get this error when I change the timings, hmmmm idk what to do haha.

Try running your memory @ 1333 and changing the timings.

You were able to do 1600 on auto correct? You might try bumping the CPU-NB(not NB) .1v higher then auto.( I believe 1.20) One thing we must remember is that 1600 is an OC for the IMC(internal memory controller) in these PII chips.

Hey. I'd like to get a hold of this motherboard, but there's something I'd like to be clear about;

Judging by the reviews, this motherboard may have problems running Nvidia graphics cards? I've got a GTS 250 - if I were to pick up this motherboard, what would I have to watch out for?

Here's a link to my card. I intend to pick up a 4870/90, but it'll be a little before I've got the cash. Can I use the GTS 250 in the meantime?

About halfway down and all the way to the right on this page; I apologize for my crappy ability with MS paint. Screenshots act weird when you're dual-screening. I'm sure I saw other reviews saying as much, but they weren't as detailed.

that's a newegg review. enough said.

A guy always on my xclio case rated it a 1 egg because he said it sucked in to much dust, like a vaccum is how he put it. and some people just get a DuD. it happens when they are mass produced like they are.
