I've seen people take x4s, x6s, C3 revision even, to 4Ghz on this board. I nearly always recommend this. Firstly I'm sure it was fixed and second of all this is a great board for the price!

thanks man yeah im ordering on Monday next week so it will be here on thursday next week and i also saw that most boards dont have 2PCI-E 1x in between the Crossfire, that means that my top card will have more air right and im going to put a 120MM behind them and blow air through the cards

M4A79XTD Evo board is a great board but after owning it for over a year i can tell you that if you are wanting to do any overclocking this is not the board for you. all kinds of little quirks

mind you i'm running a C2 965BE but they are bothersome enough that i registered here just to comment on it before you ordered it.

Infact i'm motherboard shopping right now when my motherboard i have currently works fine because i'm not happy with a few things, and i'm working out the weakest links in my P.C.

not that i know off the top of my head, been about a year since i did any detailed research into a new mobo, and as i believe in owning and testing before commenting I have no recommendations for you other than this is one of the parts in a PC I try not to be restricted by "Bargains" as it is the Hub of interconnection of every single device in your PC.
