. How about you?
Second that, layout (PCIe x16 are not to tight together), colour theme, included discrete audio card and a less powerconsuming cpu then 1366 socket cpu but almost the same performance was the main reason why I choose MIIIF for my gaming rig.
I miss the LCD poster that they had on earlier ROG boards, I also miss Tweak It, joystick-like control for overclocking that Rampage Extreme / Rampage II Extreme had, the ROG Connect and RC Tweak It are quite good though, only downside is that you need a laptop but I got one so IÂ´m fine

Vcore: Load 1.280v
VTT: 1.280, must be higher for full stability i think. (Using 1.320 atm)
Sign me in!
What I thought, neither bad or great for 4,0GHz but okey, not bad if you can pull of 2000MHz+ with 1,32v of vtt but thatÂ´s probably due to that little lower uncore frequency you run with Bclk 168 compare to what one get with Bclk 200.

Well these Lynnfield tend to need a lot more voltage then the Bloomfield at same core frequency, you can try LinX at 4,4GHz but you probably going to need a uber cooling to handle the heat.
I needed 1,475 (bios set, 1,496 according to CPU-Z during load) for 4,4GHz and I got ~95C
btw, d you like your EVGA P55 board? IÂ´m think of get the EVGA P55 FTW board, any thoughts?
Maybe he just use 2.03 as a quick multithread tester?Edited by Ghostleader - 7/9/10 at 10:23am
