It works, don't it? I'll probably be getting a 750W sometime in the next few months. I know all about bad PSUs, I've had my experience with a cheap-ass PSU frying one of my mobos once. I don't think my Antec is a POS, but to each his own.

You're a little late to the party. Stuff bought and built.

Okay, I don't like this Robust Graphics Boost in the BIOS. There is no way to disable it, only Auto/Fast/Turbo. I had my stuff overclocked stable, but DiRT hated it and I think it's due to this setting. I'm all back to stock settings and DiRT runs fine now. Only game I had problem with, as RSVegas and CoD4 played without a hitch.

When I had a ds3l I had to hit either ctrl f1 or alt f1 and it opened up some more overclocking options. I think that setting should be either off or auto

I'll have to look into that. It does say Dual BIOS, so probably. Thanks!

Yea it will allow you to set ram timings and a few other things. Dual bios allows you to have two different bios versions installed and switch between them.

Oh, wasn't sure what that meant. There is no Ctrl F1 or Alt F1 sub-bios. All the extra memory settings are in the Overclock area. Anyways, everything is running fine at 3.0GHz! Once I get a new PSU and a little fan to put on the Northbridge HS and a RAM cooler, I'll try for a higher clock.

I'll probably get this PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817341011
