To be fair though, the 890GXM-G65 failures were gradual and sudden, and didn't happen right at startup.

I'm still going to give BD a run on my board, but I'm going to be conservative with OCing at first.

I did run Memtest( not the bootable version) and it came up with 0 errors after running for 4+ hours,Memtest 86+ ran through 2 times with no errors.
I think i just might order some 8 gigs of Ripjaws.
Noob question,how do i go about using 1600Mhz ram? I thought the Phenom II IMC and motherboard only supports 1333Mhz?

I got an email saying:

Get Bulldozer.

So...I don't think I have a choice. Besides...I want Bulldozer. I've already got money put away for the Crosshair V and a Zambezi 8-core processor, plus I've already purchased 4x4GB of Mushkin DDR3 2000MHz RAM.

Not that I'll be getting rid of my Thuban rig, though. I'll throw a different video card in there and get it going as a rendering machine.
