cid said: super stable q2 server...only one...running 400@552 right now.

John Thompson said: This board is wildly frustrating but has a great payoff if you can make it work. The HighPoint drivers for udma66 are awful! The BP6 also has problems because of the lack of available pci slots or irq's. Do not buy this board unless you like troubleshooti

    Brian Hammer has pushed a CPU with a default speed of 400MHz up to 582MHz!
    Stability: 8
    Remarks: I am looking into water cooling, Also, backing off to 576 makes it a bit more stable. the chips start getting flakey above 50C I think with water cooling I should be able to run atleast 588 or 594mhz quite stable! dropping my room temp to 60 deg.F resulted in a stable 594mhz. chip temp was 46-48 deg with 2.1v core.
    Victor Odman has pushed a CPU with a default speed of 366MHz up to 550MHz!
    Stability: 8
    Remarks: It's pretty hot here in Townsville, Australia. Currently about 32C / 50-60% humidity. Hence the high CPU temp.
    Marshall Boykin has pushed a CPU with a default speed of 433MHz up to 520MHz!
    Stability: 10
    Remarks: completly stable for past month!
    Subside has pushed a CPU with a default speed of 400MHz up to 600MHz!
    Stability: 10
    Remarks: soon to upgrade to peltier + FEP32 and then 2nd CPU etc

    Comment: Excellent motherboard unless you use udma66 ports. Machine hangs when copying large files no matter what driver you version use.
