post #201 of 1800
Just ordered one of these babies!

Also I noticed this board only has 8 phase for CPU, does that really matter in terms of comparing to the UD9/UD7?

No, phase count doesn' really count.

Also, LET'S SEE SOME CPU-Z folks!

Cheers

Also do you need to pug in all the 8pins (2x8pin)? Or is just 1x 8pin is fine?

It will actually boot fine with a single 4pin

The more the merrier though, but 2x 8pin is only required if you are doing extreme OCing with LN2.

Ok now, so just to clarify... If you're on air or water cooling (Such as myself) the second 8-pin is not necessary AT ALL. And if you have two or fewer GPU's on stock cooling (Such as myself) the two VGA molex connectors are not necessary AT ALL. Correct?

Correct .

The first vga molex (near first gpu) might help some OC on GPU 1, but I don't really know .

Still only 2 physical PCBs, but as I said above, the first molex MIGHT help a bit.
