This is probably the last Nvidia card I'mma get...due to folding on GPUs hopefully soon...and just the fact I like ATI better. <img src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Stick Out Tongue" class="inlineimg" /><br />

I know most P965 boards can be modded so they can do SLI - but what about Crossfire? Namely the P5B Deluxe .... <img src="/images/smilies/thinking.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Thinking" class="inlineimg" />

Not sure.<br />
<br />
Why not just get the P5W DH Deluxe... or wait for DFI's RD600 board (drool). <br />
<br />
Do note that the P5B will run in X16, X4 mode as far I know... X8, X8 would be better (or X16,X16 with the RD600).<br />
<br />
Look at the P5W64 if you want the best overclocking board that support Crossfire (ok ok ok ok it's $310 - LOL)

IIRC, the P5B Deluxe will run Crossfire with the 6.9 Catalyst drivers......the second slot is pinned at x4, so it's not FULL Crossfire, but it's still faster than single and not much slower than full Crossfire.

It's only been running since Friday night so it's still being broken in. I ran it all weekend at stock settings folding 50% on each core with a single 8 hour break Saturday night to cool the AS5 as part of the curing process.<br><br>
I stepped it up to 100% folding on both cores this morning and will be turning it off tonight for another cooling session.<br><br>
I'll continue this cycle all week. This weekend I will start playing with it, first trying to see how low of voltage I can run it at stock with. Then I will start slowly bumping it up and see where I can go with the stock 10 multi. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br><br>
I did enjoy installing Neverwinter Nights and having it tell me my CPU was too slow and I might experience slow downs <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
I will start a thread with my testing as soon as the break in is done this weekend.

Thanks Thumper I will look forward to your thread. By the way I like the way you are approaching your OC. In my humble oppinion your methodical approach should help answer many of the questions on what the CPU can do.
