Nice review mate..

Hopefully now that one is nailed down it'll be easier to review when more boards come.

Was that the maximum stable overclock you could get or were you just happy to get there and call it a day?

Hi!

Great review, mate!

I was very astonished, that the s775 sometimes can match or even overrun the new socket. Nevertheless the new platform is a great performer, but I don't think that the time has come to upgrade to it, maybe next year . I would love to see how the new i7 performs against the new phenom 2 that are coming, because there are great things you hear about the overclocking performance of the new AMD's. Hope you will get a phenom 2 sample fast and compare these two.

And again, congrats for the great review.

Have a nice day.

It`s doing a decent job. Nothing proud of a new socket tho.

I can see that the areas it does exel in are more than likely down to the tri-channel over dual channel.

I can't recommend them on this showing, but I still see this as part of the 1st round of mobos. The fact that it holds it`s own, with the exception of older graphic benchmarkers which dont mean much, means that whatever is to come should be that much better.

It`s a great review, like to see the Intel 4 Series ICH10R up against it tho as opposed to nVidia.

Cheers for the feedback as ever guys.

The overclock was the max possible at the time of review. For whatever reason it wouldn't budge much over 200 but the rumours are that using a lower multi and higher Bclk helps, sadly this info came too late but rest assured, I will update when I get to test the mobo again as it looks like it could be the base for our new i7 test rigs.

We chose to pitch it against the NVidia chipset as it is the only chipset where we could have DDR3 aswell as having the capability to underclock the DDR3 to 1600mhz to best match the 1600 Corsair so comparisons could be made with dual vs triple channel ram. Intel chipsets would mean messing with the FSB and multi's of the QX9770 which inevitably would result in an unfair stock vs stock comparison of the CPU's.

It's always going to be hard reviewing a product with no legitimate comparative product. I could have copped out and just reviewed the P6T against itself, stock vs overclocked which is the norm but I thought everyone would have appreciated some results people they could relate to. Not many folk have the QX9770 granted, but it makes interesting reading having the top skt775 vs the entry i7, at least I hope it does.

Keep your eyes peeled for the Gigabyte EX58-UD5 review coming very soon .

Cracking review...I'm still holding off for a whilst though...i'm hoping the phenom II's may push the price down...but its very impressive for a new socket utilising new tech...especially when you look at the entry/high end level comparison...it does show that the price is warranted...but lets hope AMD step in the ring a bit beefier then last time...
