    CoolerMaster Hi-End case (Stacker 832, techPowerUp :: Cooler Master Stacker 832 Review :: Page 1 / 6) costs the same price here!

    As I understood GA P45-DQ6 is still unavailable..?

    What do you think concerning GA X48-DQ6?

    WOW, you guys are getting robbed for cases! Don't you know anyone you trust to send money to and have them ship you a case from the US?

    P45-DQ6 is available, maybe not in your country I suppose yet. Have you asked your supplier a guess on when they may get some?

    X48 is a good board, but if you could wait and it isnt too long I would wait for the P45, also the X58 is coming out shortly as well. But yes, X48 is a good board

    Local suppliers can deliver this cases. You can trust them as well. :)

    Do you really think that X58/P45 will differ sufficiently comparing with X48?

    Well for the 300 + over the Price of one in the US I would be looking for someone to ship me one rather then spend the extra 200-300 to buy in your area

    Yes, the P45 is VERY nice, I have not seen much on X58 yet. I would have a P45 over a X48 anyday

    Dear Lsdmeasap,

    This week guys from service should give me my mainboard back (they are so f****n slow!). They’ve decided not to return money but to give me new a board.

    One interesting question emerged: today I wanted to check with CPUID 1.46 whether my board is EX38-DS5 or X38-DS5 (because for this CrossfireX PC I’ve bought the same board as is installed on my PC now).

    CPUID said that X38-DQ6 is installed!!! I launched dxdiag – computer model was DS5.

    EX38 wasn’t mentioned. Of course, if this X38 board is not a EX board it will not support CrossfireX.

    Maybe it’s because EX38 is somehow similar to X38-DQ6? :-)

    Here are the results http://www.upload2world.com/pic94/up...orld_b931c.jpg

    No, I mean that Windows XP SP3 can’t identify my mainboard exactly :-) There is no such “problem” under Vista. If it was DQ6 it would not be so good because this one doesn’t supports CrossfireX.



    I’ve finally bought CoolerMaster Cosmos S1100 case. This one has an amazing cooling! I have my board back (EX38-DS5), installed one videocard and I’m about to install the second one :-)

    Good luck, Post back and let me know how it goes.

    Ya, that is likely just a XP related error

    Hi there!

    Everything is well with this PC. I guess that the previous board was defective. The final configuration is the following:

    GA-EX38-DS5, Core 2 Duo E8400, Kingston HyperX 4GB 1066Mhz, 2xWD750GB, Thermaltake 1000W PSU, LG GGW-H20 Super Multi Blue in CoolerMaster Cosmos S1100 Case.







    The system is still working fine and I hope there will be no more problems.
