Pros: see my last review

Cons: highest ram voltage stil 2.1v but if u get good ram this aint a problem.

QUIET!

Pros: This is very quiet at max rpm, I have no idea what others are talking about. They must be bats. Cool to the touch during overclocked burn-in!

Cons: None.

Overall Review: I used a fan grill to protect wiring in the case. Asus P5B 0319bios e6300@2.9ghz! Corsair XMS2 ram. Use Arctic Silver 5 as per directions!

Does what it says.

Stable Board

ASUS P5B LGA 775 Intel P965 Express ATX Intel Motherboard
ASUS P5B LGA 775 Intel P965 Express ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Stable, good overlocking features. Asus update e-z to update bios in windows XP.

Cons: Max 400fsb. Max 2.1V vdimm. No NB voltage. NB gets hot w/o fan.

Overall Review: This board will hit 400fsb with bios 0213 stable but you need good cooling. Worked great with my e6300 and Corsair XMS2 ram. Stable @2.4ghz 7x342. Set ram@533=1:1 divider 667=4:5 divider 800=1:4 (266*4=1066bus).

great fan

Pros: adjustable plate so u can flip it "upsidedown." It's also silent and moves decent amount of air.

Cons: you can't turn it into an intake blower. I tried reversing the polarity and the fan wouldn't turn.

Overall Review: I bought this thing over 2 years ago and it works great. You can take it apart and wash it, make sure u dry it and oil it well with silicone or wd-40 oil. Right now I took the plate off and it sits on an angle against my agp 6600gt's heatsink. drop temps by 10c load and running 590/1200ddr!
