Man... video cards are getting bigger and bigger. Sooner or later someone will have to create a video card length database and a list of cases that fit x or y card.

Re: What SATA Cable End Would You Rather Own?

Eventhough 90º angle connectors have their place I guess I still prefer them old school straight types :) Of course that could change with some "getting used to it" :P

It will dynamically go from around 1.1v to 1.325v as needed with speedstep enabled.
Well you don't have a P5B Deluxe :P

Re: drop your chipset temp by 4-5 °C w/ a BIOS setting

One time I set it @ Auto and it was approximately 1,7V! I bet there are tons of people out there that run these things with AUTO volts and eventually they end up with fried CPUs, etc. They should make AUTO the same as Default voltage, not some figure the board conjures out of nothing, damnit. :evil...

Re: drop your chipset temp by 4-5 °C w/ a BIOS setting

Yup. Setting your Vcore @ Auto while overclocking is a BAAAAD idea. You get like 0,2V more than what you need. I have a "modest" 3,2GHz OC on my E6400. This one sucks a lot of power so Vcore is a bit high at 1,43V. One time I set it @ Auto and it was approximately 1,7V! :shock:
