Hehe, well "cheap" is relative. What's the price range that you were looking to spend on one? I'm currently using this and like it.

PLEXTOR Black 8X BD-ROM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM SATA Internal BD Combo Model PX-B320SA LightScribe Support ~$124 (Newegg)

Update: Buy.com is currently having a special offer, $25 off $100 spent, if you purchase a product via Paypal. The cost of the drive is a little more expensive there than at Newegg, but, with this promotional code, you can get it for a much cheaper price! $132 (buy.com) - $25 (Paypal promotion code) = $107 + Free Shipping (final price)

Hey, First off I'd like to thank you guys on this thread for helping me pick out my motherboard. As well as helping to overclock it. Works great, looks great, easy to navigate bios and has plenty of room for future upgrades. This is my first motherboard with unlocked bios. First overclock and first overnight prime95 stable. How exciting to look at it this morning and see everything still running with no blue screen with a random error code on it. LOL.


3.8 w/ HT on. Didn't get as low as volts as some but temps seem good. Peaked at 75C and is running 54C-56C ( Real Temp) at what I would consider "normal" peak loads.

I do have a couple questions.
1) Real Temp vs. SpeedFan. There is quite a difference between what these two programs are showing me for temps. With SpeedFan significantly lower. Now I'd love to think that SpeedFan was correct and RealTemp was showing high but I figured I'd better use the higher temp for monitoring my stability testing. Real Temp at idle seems to be right on with the temps in bios. But then I was reading something the other day that suggested that SpeedFan takes the temp at a different area of the chip and was more reliable than the temps in bios. WHAT ?? It struck me as internet hyperbole at the time but I thought I'd ask the question here. Which is right? Which temp monitoring do you trust? and why?

2) I have questions regarding some of these "other" voltages. CPU PLL, IOH, ICH, as well as. CPU differential Amplitude, and CPU clockskew. Would there be any harm in leaving these to Auto ? I seem to be able to get stable at lower volts with them in Auto. Though I didn't leave them in overnight to truly test it.

Xtra thanks to Xmisery for providing a well laid out template to give me someplace to start.

Hey! First time builder here. For the longest time, I've been thinking of going with the P6x58d premium, but then the p6x58e came out. The little list of different features on the front only listed a few minor differences. My question is whether or not the premium is worth the extra $60.

If you need the dual gigabit LAN than it is definately worth it right. Other than that who can say other than the person writing the check.

Maybe this will help.

P6X58D-E has Marvell® 9128 While P6X58D Premium has Marvell® 9123 Controller. (It means the E version has a better controller and supports RAID better)

P6X58D-E also has better VIA® VT6308P controller while the P6X58D Premium has VIA® VT6308 (IEEE 1394)

P6X58D-E Only has 1 Gigabit LAN controller Marvell 88E8056® While P6X58D Premium has 2.

P6X58D-E doesnt have the RESET button on the motherboard while the P6X58D Premium has, but both have the POWER and MEMOK buttons.

P6X58D-E also doesnt come with 1 x Optional Fan for water-cooling or passive-cooling while P6X58D Premium does.

P6X58D-E might be better at overclocking

I hope this will answer some questions to some people who want to know what are the differences between those two motherboards.

I have to pay taxes through new egg as well. Tiger had it for 99 free shipping and no tax. I am buying most of my components through them.

LG makes good stuff? Just want it to burn some dvd and cdr and play some blue ray.

anyone know if Directron is a reputable e-sellar. I can get the h50 for 69 shipped form them and a corsair memory airflow fan for 17.

With a push pull is there any need for rubber gaskets between the radiators and fans and case?
