It's a different story with Phenoms than it is with C2s. Phenoms have an on die 1066 memory controller that can actually take advantage of the extra bandwidth.
Yep, 1066 is well utilized for Phenoms. Since it's almost no more expensive than 800 anyway I might as well.
People seem only only have good things to say about DFI, and I'm leaning towards them now. The only question I have is if it's worth going GX or FX with them.
So I will DEFINITELY be getting a DFI board, they just seem to be the best. I just need to know if it's worth spending the extra $20 on the FX board.
Also, can anyone recommend a good heatsink (preferably less than $40) for the Phenom II? I'm looking to do some good OCing, so I need a nice one.
