ya..i always think that upgrading from SB750 chipset board to SB850 chipset are really worth it.
futhermore, upgrade to this this board?

Sorry dude, missed your post. you can find them in many places, I have a Fry's electronics about 10mins away. Only concerns is its really close to the pcb on the top gtx470, I added some electrical tape as it did touch and caused everything to cut-off once , system is ok .

The placement of that Zalman fan looks ideal for the NB.
Perhaps you could share some insight into a few questions tho, Wermad...

~Does it look like you can mount other fan sizes on the bracket?
~Does it feel stable/notice any vibration?
~Does it interfere with the Xfire cable?

That may be an alternative to my "ram cooler sitting on my vid card" lol. (see avatar pic)

Edit: Just noticed you run SLI (hack?), guessing that's why I didn't see a Xfire cable heh =P

1) Yes, per the instructions upto 120mm fan
2)Zalman includes a resitor to lower the voltage and the included 92mm fan is silent. As long as you secure it w/ 2-3 screws, should not be an issue.
3) I cant say for sure since Im still pending my sli bridge, but based on the design as long as you have those sli/crossfire "ribbon" bridge I dont see any problem w/ it. There is about 5-7.5mm of space between my gtx470(s) and the bracket.

Only real concern is the perpendicular horizontal band of the bracket. to place the fan ideally for the NB it comes really close to the pcb of my gtx 470. Quick fix is to wrap that area w/ electrical tape as a precaution. The fan mounts @ one point, so it can be turned w/ just loosing the thumb nut.

Any examples as to why? I'm assuming that I could still use my phenom II 965 with this board.

because 890FX/SB850 chipset board are way better overclocking board compare to 790FX/SB750 chipset board.
support way higher DRAM Freq up 2200 or more.

Thats nice, although I haven't oc'd my amd rig at all. I doubt I will see a difference when I'm playing sc2 if I were to upgrade to it. Who knows, I may take the plunge just b/c I love the board.
