    Thoughts on these results vs seperate sound card?,2001-51.html I'm kind of swaying towards the Max Formula 2 since it's currently offered with a $40 mail in rebate providing you buy a selected Intel processor on the list of the rebate form. Therefore I see the expense as a mere $20...

    P5E-VM vs P5K-VM for oc'ing differences for Q6600?

    I'm basicly just wanting to know the rundown on which one would offer more features in the bios and how limiting 1 is over the other. I will not be using the onboard video but just mainly concerned with the oc'ing potential of one over the other with a Q6600. The P5E-VM appears to have better...

    Any PCI Fan controllers?

    I know that Sunbeam Theta TP101 can do the job but, the company doesnt look reliable in terms of driver updates since it hasn't been updated in a year.
