Don't remind me... can't believe you've held onto that board for that long.

Actually,since i got it back from rma in the spring of 07 its been running the same 600mhz overclock without any issues whatsoever.It would post 3.5 ghz with the 6600 but werent stable above 3.3 ghz,while not impressive it's not useless either allthough it took asus a few revisions to get there.It has served me well,it was just that other non nvidia boards achieved 3.6 with ease but speeds like that remained a dream with this board

Yeah, it took them a long time to release a bios for it. I was on the beta forever, and it had FSB holes all over the place.

But, to its credit, it was the only working 6-series SLI board that I ever found out of 6 tries. :P

Late to the game..........

Got my EVGA GTX 275 on Monday. Spent the morning reworking the cables in my PC and cleaning out dust in preparation for when UPS arrived (this was a must anyways since the card is 10.5 inches). Installation was a breeze as I had all my previous drivers uninstalled and DriverCleaned.net/DriverSwept. When UPS arrived it was open the box, shut down the pc, put the new card in.

This card rocks going from a 8800 GTS 512 which really wasn't slow by any means other than Cry****s, which still ain't so hot but it's a crappy game engine imo. It sure is nice being able to take FSAA for granted now

The Unreal Engine 3 is an excellent engine (but of course those guys have more experience so it should be).

This is about as far as i can go with this mobo with a single gpu card,it doesn't support the last batch of socket 775 quads so apart from the E8600 this is the fastest cpu this mobo supports.Next upgrade are gonna cost a whole lot more but this will tide me over for a good while yet.
I have that cpu in my secondary rig, push the fsb straight to 400 x 9 & she'll hit 3.6ghz on air no problems, slight volt oncrease to 1.3 & it's rock solid.

It's at 3.61 now and very solid,at 380 x 9.5 .400x9.5 is 3.8 ghz and that wont even post properly,400 fsb with a 9 mp is problematic aswell.I think i could get it to higher clocks eventually but since its prime stable at this speed and just over 30 c idle i'm not even sure if i should try.Had enough of trying to get the E6600 to 3.6 with this board,had a lot of crashes with broken registry entries,had to install acronis to even dare continue with trying to overclock the bastard further.

Got an MSI GTX 295 for $600 AU. Awesome price for Australia!! been playing Stalker Clear Sky 1920x1200, 8xAA, Enhanced Full Dynamic Lighting (DX10), everything maxed except for SSAO (off) and sun effects (low).

pulls a pretty constant 60fps in open areas but drops to 20-30 at the clear sky base.


I originally paired the 295 with a 550 watt Antec Truepower PSU. Not a chance. Did not have the Amps on the 12 v rails. So I managed to swap my old 8800gtx for a 750w superflower psu. not the best brand of PSU but solid none the less.
