    Yeah does look great. Would have got this but it has no PCI
    The Grid. A digital frontier. I tried to picture clusters of information as they moved through the computer.
    What did they look like? Ships? Motorcycles? Were the circuits like freeways?
    I kept dreaming of a world I thought I'd never see. And then, one day. I got in.

    You didn't get a PCI-Express Xonar?

    No because the PCI-E x1 slot on this board is in a stupid place, right next to the heatsink.

    Ah dam, you can install them in any PCI-E slot, 16x slots are backwards compatable with 1x, 4x & 8x devices
    Also it doesn't slow any of the other slots, my GFX cards still show 16x
    The only disadvantage I have found is the need for a floppy power connector - more cables lol

    On my Rig 3 I use an Adaptec PCI-E RAID card in a 16x slot, and I havn't noticed any overclocking issues with it either.

    Sorry mate, wish I had been able to tell u pre order

    On this motherboard my vcore is consistenly higher than using the same settings on my ASUS P8Z68 DELUXE. Turbo and Speedstep are on, and when dropping to 1.6GHz vcore only goes down to 1.200 whereas it is usually just 1.000 on the P8Z68 DELUXE and sometimes as low as 0.900
    There's probably some setting I am missing, I'll post back when I have tried more settings

    I have just flashed to the latest BIOS version 3208 which has finally fixed my issue.
    Previously if you had SpeedStep and Turbo enabled and set a multiplier of 40, it would ignore speedstep and lock it to 40, now I get the whole range; from 19 to 40.

    There is an issue flashing to this BIOS version; in that you have to do it twice. I had an issue using my mouse inbetween flashes, but once I started using the keyboard to navigate it was fine.
