If by return in April I am too, especially if the last part is true (better specs).

Was able to pick the GD65 off from Directron. How are you guys going to RMA the board with MSI?

Any problems with the board so far? I heard loads of issues with the P8P67 boards and the Gigabytes weren't in stock so I went for this one.

i haven't had any major problems to be honest. hence i havent even cared for a return so far wink.gif

i do have some minor "lag / freeze" when accessing the regular hdds, but i highly doubt that comes out to be the board, most likely its the hdds spinning up time that i get.

I plan to get the MSI P67A-GD65 when the B3 version is on stock. Does anyone know if Corsair A70 CPU cooler will block the ram slots? I plan to get http://ncix.com/products/?sku=57953&vpn=F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL&manufacture=G.Skill for my Ram.

So... does the A70 block slot 1? Slot 2? Is it efficient to put on slot 2 and 4 rather than 1 and 3? I'm looking for a decent cooler to get my 2500k to 4.5-4.6GHz and since A70 is $9.99 after rebate, I might just get it.

Thanks!

It won't block the ram slots based on Newegg reviews of people using them with 2500K and 2600Ks. The ram slots are close for all SB motherboards.

Any major differences between the GD65 and the GD55? Once they're back in stock, most likely, I'm going with the GD55.
