    P5AD2-E Premium or Fatlity 925XE?

    I'm leaning more towards the asus board right now because of the crazy raid setups you can do on it. What are your takes on these boards? I haven't had time to look too in depth into them so I was wondering if there are any features that make one board stand out above the rest.

    About to take the dive into water cooling

    Ok, so I replaced my 3.2C with a 3.2E ES, and my older swiftech heatsink just isn't getting the job done. So I decided to look into watercooling and came up with this combo, let me know if any of these parts are notorious for being bad, or if I should pony up a few more dollars and get a better...

    Just got my hooks on a 3.2E ES

    So yeah, i've got a 3.2 Prescott Engineering Sample in my rig right now. I wasn't too sure on what multiplier worked the best for anyone else, but I set mine to 10 with a fsb of 250 to put me at 3.5Ghz and 1000mhz bus speed. I have a 5:4 divider as well and my timings as tight as they will...

    2.4C @ 3.3 > 3.2C @ 3.6?

    Well i'm bored and I got a hold of a 2.4/512/800 from a friend who didn't need it. I was wondering if having a higher fsb(close to 270) would be better for gaming etc... vs my 3.2 which is at 225mhz right now? I've got some pc4000 and lots of time this afternoon.

    Registry entry for refreshrate in CS:S

    I had the problem of not being able to use custom refresh rates. In the registry if you look in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\valve\source\settings there is an entry called screenrefreshrate which was set to 60 on mine. I played with it and it made a difference for me.

    Good deal on 6800 GT? That is the best I could find, doubt I would want to buy from that site though, unless someone here has exp with it? Anyone else find one? I was thinking of pre-ordering the bb one but I was hoping maybe this one would get here first.

    ATi equivalent to digital vibrance?

    I'm not sure if that was the right name for the feature, but on my Fx5600 there was something along those lines that you could change. Does ati have something similar to this?
