I am FINALLY drop the dead weight known as the Asus P5N E-SLI and picking up a Biostar TForce P43 board (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813138122). I'm also parting ways with my awesome E4300 and going Q6600! A 320gb WD is also incoming to replace the 80s.

The Asus board has been crap since day one. The thing just doesn't want to take my E4300 over 1333mhz FSB, not even 1mhz over. The 2nd PCIE is just a waste as I own a ATI card now and I can't even get it to run a 1x card in there without enabling SLI mode, which kills the primary back to 8x. It also has big time issues getting Quads over 2.8ghz or so, which is a huge deal breaker since I'm already at 3.0 and not willing to step back.

Here's hoping for 3.6ghz or better!
