But there's finally something to talk about in hardware:

AMD RD600

Anandtech's usual detailed analysis brings forward some great things that DFI did with this board. I'll list them:
  • Digital VRM for super-stable OC
  • Memory performance that ROCKS
  • SB600 has great IDE abilities
  • Good Layout with PCI balance
  • Fanless design
  • much more
Anyways, I'm kinda rushed, but let me just say this:

E6600, OCZ Flex XTC, with a Scythe Infinity cooler, in a case:

Max CPU: 432x9 (3-4-3-9 1T, 866MHz, 2.44V), CPU 1.5375V, 3893MHz (+62%)
Max FSB: 511x7 (4-4-4-12 2T, 1068MHz, 2.41V), CPU 1.4875V, 3575MHz (+92% FSB)

That 511mhz is the highest the BIOS will go. 518 was the max with the AMD System Manager.

Heard C2D / C2Q procs are dropping in price Jan 7th too... Still waiting to upgrade but might do so then, if there are some better boards out as well. Fingers crossed...

Unfortunately, I don't think RD600 is going to make it far from DFI's group. The NVIDIA 680i stuff is really good, while power hungry and hot, it performs well.

I'm personally waiting on the 650i Ultra for myself. I'm pretty sure I can swear off SLI until I get a new 1080p LCD.
