Thank You.
Sorry, but as I said in the last paragraph, it's due to be delivered Tuesday. That's 12/07/10. I did, however, research it quite a bit and it seems as if it's the best bang for the buck at the moment. That's why I passed up all the Black Friday deals on SSD's.
Happy Whatever!
(That's as close as I ever get to holiday cheer. I love what the holidays stand for but, Damn, I despise the holiday season and all the crap that goes with it!)

BTW, I love my HAF-X! Just as I said in the review it's perfect on air, it just sucks for watercooling.

I have the same drive and it screams as it says that it will. Take a look at my benchmarks.

Edit: I will add a couple more in a little bit as soon as I find the ones I did on my hard drive. If I can't find it then I will make a new one.

After having my new system up for a week, I decided that I like this board. Only problem was the Sound driver that was on the ASUS site. Was not good. I reinstalled the one from my old Gigabyte AM3 board and it works fine now.

Thanks for the numbers. It appears I've ordered one helluva fast drive!
I wonder, if I add another and maybe a RAID card? Maybe...

I've been stable on a 4.2 overclock for a couple weeks now, so I thought I'd start to look at memory settings (since they've just been on auto). I'm a newcomer to overclocking, so some things aren't making much sense.

In my bios, it says "Target DRAm Frequency 1483MHz" under the CPU speed. However, in CPUID it says my speed is 554.8 (I know to x2 that number so 1109.6). Auto settings have put the timings at 2:6, 8-8-8-20, 59 clocks, 1T.

I'm thinking of hardcoding the frequency, but if I do that, should I leave the other settings to auto? Meaning, will they adjust to their relative value to the DRAM Frequency, or should I hard code all the other values (DRAM, UCLK, QPI, are there more?)?

Thanks in advance. So far this board has been great.

The timings should automatically change but it it best to manually set the timings.

The next release of the -E bios and probably the Premium bios should have some nice compatibility / stability fixes in it.

I had been talking to ASUS about some issues with the -E bios that had been there for quite a while and they sent me a test bios about a week or so later that has the issues fixed.

The test bios I have is from what I have seen so far more stable than the current Premium bios.
