running at 1600MHz FSB. What gives???
That's interesting about the P5B. I thought that all the Intels were
fairly good quad OCers and the 680i the dog.

If I don't swap mine out for the evga I'm attempting to find a good OCer with at least 3 PCI-E slots. The problem is that is hard to find reviews for the Qx6700 on any board which means you have to start going by anecdotal evidence and even then there isn't much because not to many people want to throw $1,000CDN on a chip that is known to have heat issues and isn't a particularly good OCer anyways.
