Mine is supposed to come tomorrow. I can't wait to build this thing! I don't know if I should run it stock for a while then attempt to OC the i7 950 or just OC it off the bat.

This is my first build and I finished last night. Took around 3 hours. The hardest part was installing the Megahalems cooler, which was more of a "need another set of hands" thing than it was hard. I'm ready to run it tonight. In what order should I go from booting up a new system?

Put in the OS disk and boot from it. Install OS. OC after OS is installed and seems to be working properly. Nothin to it. You got it.

I read somewhere on this forum that it's best to download the drivers for this mobo from their website - the booklet strongly recommends that you DON'T do that. Any reason for this? Thanks.

Im looking at getting the P67 Sabertooth in a few weeks. The styling is awesome and from what ive seen the quality is good as well.
Is it worth it though?
The whole "Lets cover the entire motherboard and then say downward coolers are a good cooling solution" does not inspire confidence...

EDIT: I could always just remove the cover from the board to make that a non-issue but Im not sure if I want to get a Sabertooth only to start dismantling it immediately.

^- you can add a 50mm fan to the board if you're concerned with cooling....
