    Biostar Tpower X58 + i7 920 @ 4Ghz on Air (Stable)

    Their is currently two issues I have come across with the Biostar X58:

    1. T-Power II software utility does not work once the system is overclocked.
    2. Ram Timings issues, at the moment my OCZ 3x2GB Platinums rated at 7-7-7-24 will not pass IntelBurnTest or Prime95 but will play games no problem with the latest official bios released in March.
      Still needs work on as I cannot overclock the ram either, even with dropping the timings to 9-9-9-24.

      They work totally stable at 8-8-8-24 @ 1600mhz - see below.

    If Biostar can solve the above two problems it will be fantastic, in terms of perfomance vs price it is easily a match for any Asus, Gigabyte or DFI X58 motherboards even the Rampage / Classified waste of money boards.

    Good work, tried lowering vcore yet? My 965 needs 1.3V for 4Ghz.
