I am using GSkill PC3 2000 memory.
Welcome to the club, literally

I too switched over from AMD, but I had already owned a 775 build, and its somewhat the same as LGA 1366. Would love to see pictures of your rig, I am putting mine up when my Antec 300 illusion gets here.

Still putting it all together but here is what I have thus far.









I have a Coolermaster V8 and See Through Side panel ordered for it from Coolermaster and Gonna get some UV lights soon.

Now I just need to find some overclocking directions, especially for the voltages. I managed to get to 3.5 by just adjusting the CPU Frequecy but haven't tried chnaging any other settings to go higher.

I did notice a major difference between what speed I have it set in BIOS and what CPUz shows me. When I had it at 21x160 which was 3360, CPUz was telling me I was at 4.2 ???

Guess I gotta do some Googling.

Thats weird, I'd say its turbo boost, but I think that only boosts 300MHZ. Why are you ordering a V8 though? The Megahalems destroy it when it comes to heat dissipation. Anyways, nice rig, I don't think mine will even be able to touch it (When it comes to looks or graphics)once I get my Antec 300.

Yeah Verus Fortis, keep that Megahalems! It is way better than the V8. I know the V8 will match your case and all, but it isn't quite as good. But either way, the V8 is good too.

Yeah, I am starting to have second thoughts about the V8 but unfortuantley it is already ordered and shipped, and I already sold the Mega on EBAY.

Second Asrock build and couldn't be happier. Can't wait to get some time and learn a little more to take advantage of what I can.

Update:ASUS CPU Support and BIOS's where now added, but I could not find the ASUS P6T WS PRO BIOS or CPU support list, in fact I couldn't find it listed at ASUS's website.

Also, don't be afraid to join the club, I know a lot more people than this own ASUS/ASrock P55/X58 boards.

Signature coming soon.

M3T4LM4N222 I just wanted to thank you for doing this and putting in all the work. This is the first motherboard I have actually wanted to keep longer than a month. I chnage OFTEN, but I think I will keep this one a while. At least long enough to run it through the paces.
