Very nice.

I'm thinking of getting this board, but I'm wondering what are people getting for max base clock? I sold my UD5 because I couldn't get past 222 and I'm hoping this board can go to at least 230 or so.

Hey guys.

Sorry if this is the wrong place but I felt you all would be the best to ask.

I am currently putting together my first build in 5 years. Wanted to check with you all on some components. Mainly ram and power supply.

I do plain on SLI at some point. I may dish out for a GTX480 now and a second in a year or two. Is a 1000w overkill for SLI GTX480 or GTX295? How would I fair with SLI 9800GTX+'s? I have one now so that would be the most cost effective option.

As for ram I would prefer to keep it closer to $200 but not sure whats a great value for performance option.

Below are the prices I have found and components.

Look forward to hearing from you fellow P6X58D guys - and gals :-)

I have not tried playing with a lot of the other setting beyond voltage on this board yet (skews, pcie frequency) but I maxed out at 219.

these gtx 480 are pretty thirsty in wattage. for now i'm running on single. but if you want sli then yeah 1000watt would be ideal.

Your settings for the I7 930 worked like a charm. I was really relieved when it actually rebooted and stayed on. I am new to overclocking and also the I7 9x way of working.
Now I have to work on why only 4 gig mem is showing on post when I have 6.
Appears to be a very common problem that sometimes an RMA doesn't solve.
I do know my P6X58 came with a Foxconn cpu socket but who knows.

Any way I will continue tweaking and post my results if there is any improvement.


Oh forget it...if you see this xmisery thanks..

I would typically recommend the Corsair HX850 PSU, but, if you're considering going SLI with some high-end nVidia GPU's (which tend to be power hungry), I would go with that HX1000 instead. Newegg is running a pretty good deal on one right now also for $189 here.

For the memory, lots of good options out there. I'll only speak about the Corsiar Dominator's though, since that is what I'm running and can tell you these things are just badass. I have the 1600 Cas 8's and they OC beautifully. I just checked Newegg and you're in luck! They're running a killer deal on them right now for $179 here.

Thanks man, I appreciate yours and everyone elses feedback and appreciation. I'm always looking to tune the templates if anyone has a way to get the CPU voltages lower, provided there is proof that it is stable.

Also, I'll be updating the 4.4GHz template soon with HT enabled, thanks to gergregg. I tried to get the 4.4HT stable specs posted up during my testing phase, but, my temps were getting just too high for my liking. You'll likely need to be running a full water loop to start touching that OC and higher. So anyone interested, be on the look out!

Thanks! I will go with the ram. I am getting the board through tiger because new egg tacks on tax here. I saw that CM was running refurbs for 89 on the 932. Problem is the 30 bucks in shipping bring me back up to just getting a new one through tiger shipped free. any thoughts on cooling? I would like to get a steady 4.0. nothing too crazy. was looking into the h50 configured Intake (with a push pull and ducting the exhaust out of the case somehow) thoughts?
