I am building my sister's computer and am using her board to test my CPU and RAM. All I can say is, wow. Big step up from my MSI Neo4-F! This is a micro-ATX form factor overclocking board. Has many more BIOS settings than the MSI, and is much more stable. Right now it's running memtest with my RAM at 260 Mhz, 2.5, 2, 3, 5 1T. My Neo4-F "maxed out" the memory at 260 Mhz, 2.5,3,4,8 2T. Same CPU (3800X2 Manchester). On AIR. I don't have a hard drive for it yet so I can't boot to Windows for a screenshot. Memtest86+ shows L1 Cache BW at 20492 MB/s, L2 Cache BW at 4882 MB/s, and Memory BW at 2714 MB/s. Remember that this would be doubled due to the dual-channel memory buss. That would put the memory at 5428 MB/s. Not bad, I'd say, for a MicroATX board!
