It does also come with 3DMark06 (full) S.T.A.L.K.E.R game and kaspersky AV. The Crosslinx would add price too but take off 30 for a waterblock and it's a reasonably priced board.

If you want to overclock the Blitz is the best. The P5K boards have SATA issues.

The price point was that technology depreciates stupidly fast, but keeping such a hot product in short supply will stall its initial depreciation, if only for a little. Theres nothing wrong with the actual price of the board atm, as as i said im prob being ott and theyre just in short supply of a component or 3.

Anyone seen a direct comparison with the Blitz and IP35-Pro?

No mate, haven't seen any P35 round-ups or anything like that.

If you are in no rush for a mobo wait for the x38/48's to come out, then you can get one of those or a p35 that would have dropped in price

Yoyotech are saying that the Abit IX38 QuadGT will be £147 incl. VAT & the IX38-MAX £160 incl. VAT.

You can also find the Gigabyte X38-DQ6 for ~£150.

Think that if I was going to spend £160 on a mobo that I would rather it be on an X38.

The performance gain is pretty minimal by the looks of reviews so far. The Blitz probably overclocks alot better then those too. Unless you deperatly want something X38 offers then P35 is a better choice.

I've seen a screenie of 6x636 on an X36 - don't think that I've seen one from a Blitz with that high fsb yet.

X38 so far looks to be basically a P35 with an extra x16 PCI-E bolted onto the northbridge.

But who needs FSBs that high?

I think the same, and it's more heat.

I sure don't but I was just replying to your "The Blitz probably overclocks alot better then those too."

From what I understand Penryns & fast DDR3 will start to show separation between P35 & X38.

i was looking at one of these boards, but i think with x48 around the corner and intel's new CPU's coming Q1 that i'm going to hold off and see what's happening then.

Word on the grapevine has it that the IX38-MAX is/has been shelved and that early 2008 will see a IX48-MAX instead.
