dont believe everything on the egg reviews....
Yeah, I usually don't bother reading them. Just didn't expect to see so many for a board that I've heard all good things about!
And by the way the way the P5K is a P35 chipset so sli would be 16x slot 1 and 4x slot 2....thats why I Hate it....they shold of never have released it ...wait till x38 by intel......thats a seet chipset....suppose to be out august/07
seet is sweet sorry for the mis-spelling
I'm VERY weary of X38. It sounds good, but the premium is going to be high: DDR3 comes to mind first and foremost. I think all of the X38 boards are DDR3 which means you're going to pay for DDR3 + board enthusiast prices and whatever else to go with it.
I would check tou see if there ddr2 backwards compatible...honestly i thought they were....
As far as I knew, DDR3 has different Pins? As in, it won't even fit in a DDR2 slot or vice-versa?

The Gigabyte P35C DS3R has 4 DDR2 slots and 2 DDR3 slots, which pretty much tells me that DDR2 and 3 can't fit in the same slots. =P
