    I got one for £80, £60 cheaper than the P5K-D I was looking at, and by all accounts a good overclocker, and no sata/heat problems.
    Also gave up on waiting for the G0 as it looks to be several weeks before they'll get into retail.
    So, you recommend it then?

    Got any overclocking screenies?

    Not yet Haven't got it yet (Tuesday), but from what I've read, it performs well for OCing and is a general good all rounder.
    I was just suprised no one had mentioned it as I've seen it mentioned a lot around as a good P35 board to get.
    Will update when I've got it as to what its like (although I have to say, I'm considering DSR returning it and getting the P5K Deluxe instead, I can afford the extra, but I read about the sata and heat problems with it and it kind of put me off it...).

    Not had any sata or heat problems here. Only possible sata problem is the placement of the ports, but they are still useable with angled connectors.

    What are the heat problems?

    Apparently there was some issue with cooling of vregs. Something to do with the intel stock cpu cooler also cooling around the socket, but aftermarket coolers didnt always do that, so had stability issues...

    Half tempted to return the DS3 and go for the P5K-D now..hmm... :s

    Dont forget to list your Heatsink or Waterblock, and your motherboard, and if you are happy with them or not, and if you can post a stable overclock, that is great

    Well, to be honest, I only used the stock cooler once while I had the board out of the case, and it was rubbish.

    Works fine with watercooling, and I modded some Thermalright mosfet coolers to fit, so no problems there.

    Right.

    A stable hour so far, temps are around 60c on all cores, and I would recommend a Quad GT now as its still going strong and got to a 425fsb with the Q6600 temps were just crazy though so I'm sticking with 360x9@1.30v and Ill report back in another hour to see if I'm still stable but I'm loving it.

    Core 1: 47c
    Core 2: 46c
    Core 3: 46c


    Need to adjust the waterblock fitting I think to get core 0 to contact better with the block then that should drop by a degree or two

    What kind of temperatures are deemed sensible and safe?

    What are you using to measure those with?

    Its impossible to say what is sensible and safe.

    There are Intels own guidelines, but they all go out of the window when you start adding voltage and increasing the FSB.

    Zalman 9700
    Thermaltake Big Typ VX

    I used the 9700 on another machine I built and it is a nice cooler but was just wondering what the other options were. Also the G0 cores of this processor are better for overclocking right? As far as I can tell, the other types (B3...) are also overclockable, just not as much. Is that a correct interpretation?

    Thanks
    Does anybody have any input on this at all or should I just go ahead with it? I wanted to order tomorrow really..

    Thanks again

    I would have said the mine out of those 3.

    Its impossible to say about the G0 stepping being a better overclocker yet. Theres a few on XS that seem to be doing well, but until I have one myself, or someone I know gets one from somewhere I've heard of, then its all just speculation.

    All stock mate There's nothing else in the loop, but theres a MASSIVE 8800gtx right underneath producing as much heat as the sun!

    Are those temps good/bad/average?

    Right. First I'll admit to having not read the overclocking guide yet - I've just downloaded the programs from the links.
    System is a B3 Q6600 on an ASUS P5K-E WIfi with Corsair DDR2-800 RAM CAS5 (2x1GB, black slots)
    I'm currently using an intel stock cooler.
    Stressing the CPU with the short test in orthos - 2 copies running with processor affinity set, coretemp 0.95 reports:
    Core 0: 74 degrees C
    Core 1: 73 degrees C
    Core 0: 69 degrees C
    Core 0: 69 degrees C
    VID: 1.325
    I will be getting a decent air cooler and a backplate soon and will follow Clunks tighten/loosen the screws untill all cores are within a couple of degrees of each other technique.
    Once I have done that, I'll try for 3 Ghz. Until then, I'm not going to overclock it
