Dammit ATF, why did you give me that idea?

It's looking even more attractive considering my board has to do France -> England -> Ebuyer -> England -> France.

EDIT: Just ordered an MSI P35 Neo2-FR . I'll probably use it and then return seeing as I sold my Q6600.

You're a true overclocker mate, don't let fear (or budget) hold you back



EDIT: Another P35 board?? I thought you may have tried an X38, P5E maybe.

I can't get an X38 for 65 and seeing as they don't seem to offer any overclocking advantages, I didn't feel it was worth the extra money. I might go for a P45 though. 65nm aren't they? And CrossfireX support.

Or I might go 790FX + Phenom X2 when SB750 is released.

P45 detail I've seen says all Skt 775 cpu, 90nm, 65nm & 45nm with DDR2 & DDR3 versions and Crossfire, not sure if Crossfire is 16-16, 8-8 or 16-1 though.

Load Line Calibration on the P5E3 got to me, it works perfectly, vdroop becomes vrise (vrise, lol) as the load voltage nearly always equals and occasionally exceeds the idle.
