here its a 104$ price plus i think 5$ for shipping, it doesnt have raid and i cant say i like its layout alot but it does oc like crazy, right now my 6400 is doing jsut as good as my p5b d just without any of the crashes i was experiencing

if you can get the extra 10 bucks i would go for it

with the biostar you have alot of voltage everywhere except the vdimm, there is a easy volt modd for that that i did in like half an hour and the best thing is you dont need to solder to your mobo, you use a jumper and one of the little 3 or 4 prong fan connectors and a 10kohm variable resister, i can walk you thru that its really easy because stock the voltage for the ram only goes to 2.2 (2.15 actual) but the board can handle some high fsb, and if you have any more questions about its ability ask thepook, hes got one and a couple more around here have them

ok heres the vmod i used except i used a 10kohm resister which worked fine and instead of the jumper that connects to the fan ground i used one of the actuall fan plugs i jsut removed the other 2 wires from it and soldered that to the vresister

and check out this thread if you want some more info and where i got this from, also there is a pencil mod for the vdimm but i have allways hated penscil mods myself
