Can’t wait or somebody to give i some stick with a few GTX’s when they arrive. According to Asus, this can provide up to Unfortunately the Asus website didn’t have c37 information available for the Striker II Extreme board at the time of review, so for the moment we’ve bodged together our own unofficial specs list compiled from various sources around the web:.
At this stage it remains to be seen how these will vary in price, and most likely it will ultimately come down to how manufacturer’s implementations are brought to life.
This being the case, we wonder besides the obvious difference mdp55 memory support DDR2 vs. The ‘Ultra’ version is said to offer more overclocking options and support SLI memory up to DDR, but other than that there c733 to be no other differences between the two.

The nForce i Ultra SLI chipset tries to make up for this supporting memory modules up to DDR from scratch, which pushes it into a league of its own.

Unlike the previous generation i, this new chipset has been completely redesigned to properly accommodate technologies such as PCI Express 2. While the difference in model numbers seem to imply that there was more of a jump in technology between the i and the i, this couldn’t be further from the truth. While this could be seen as both a positive or negative feature, at least for now we feel most consumers will look at this as a drawback.
While many enthusiasts often obsess over vdroop and hold it solely responsible for unstable overclocks, the truth of the matter is that vdroop was very much part of Intel processor specifications and can play an important role in the longevity of your CPU and Motherboard.

User Comments Got something to say? In fact, the i chipset will come in two flavors: Now that we’ve got most of the specs out of the way, it’s time to delve into what Asus have thrown in the box Assuming the GTX is as cheap as rumored, that will be a major temptation if it performs, assuming the price tag doesn’t send you screaming Quote.
After all, the i chipset used on the “Formula” was really nothing more than a re-hash of the ageing i chipset with a PCI Express 2. PR peeps will also be quick to tell you that the i produces a lot less heat than than its predecessors and should be able to give Intel’s X38 and X48 chipsets a run for their money where overclocking is concerned.
Loadline Calibration is a feature recently introduced on Asus motherboards which helps prevent CPU voltage droop when the system is under heavy load. Issues such as poor overclocking with Quad-core chips and an insanely hot northbridge still hadn’t been resolved and overall we left the review feeling a little short changed.
Mfp55 DDR costs roughly four times more than DDR memory, while offering next to none performance advantages.

The Voltminder LED provides enthusiasts with a quick and easy way to monitor how c773 voltage cc73 are putting through components such as the CPU, Northbridge and Memory.
Feels like years I’ve been waiting for this NDA to drop and its not a disappointment! If you run into any problems, just drop us a message on the forums. While we’ll undoubtedly cover most of these features as we take a closer look at the board over the next few pages, let’s have a quick look at some of the features that often get overlooked:. Clearly there has to be more to it, otherwise the older platform would be the most practical solution.
Having only reviewed the Asus Mccp55 II Formula board a couple of months ago, the prospect of reviewing the same board yet again – just with DDR3 slots initially didn’t spark much enthusiasm amongst the team here at Overclock3D.
Simply look at the area surrounding the component you are interested in, and you will find a series of LED’s that change colour between Green, Orange and Red depending on the amount of voltage applied. Up until now I’ve avoided the nVidia boards like the plague, but I think you’re going to be seeing people breaking some OC records on this board.
