    You bring up another interesting point that has crossed my mind. This "333" was not a big deal to me because as soon as I read that well the sata 3 was you know "aftermarket" I was turned off the idea. Its like the Jmicron SATA I have on this X48, its a bit slower then the good old intel setup which works well, and good point about the RAID and the fact that there probably would be no Sata 3 RAID. IDK but I have always been a strong believer in not buying the newest stuff just as It hits the shelves, and just letting some other poor sucker be the ginny pigs and test the new stuff. lol. A classic example would be when I bought a NVIDIA 8800GT as soon as they came out. Then ended up with a crapped out card cause of "bad memory" or some **** so the replacement card was a newer revision. The UD5 is looking more and more like the go. Just thinking about it I bet thats the reason why these remaining A boards arent out yet. Maybe they will have the ICH11R on it or something? I may wait and see what happens. Im just affraid basically that they will take away the I7 920. I think I hurd some talk about that???????????? IDK its only just got affordable.

    I will let you know how it performs, hopefully soon! Considering there is no SATA3 drives out yet I doubt the chip to control it matters much anyway, but I do agree the J.Micron solutions are much slower on these boards then the Intel ones. Can't wait until Intel is ready for USB3/SATA3

    I doubt ICH11R will be out in time for that, maybe this coming spring or summer. You will always be able to get 920, used is just as good, often better because you can ask the seller how good it is unlike a boxed one from the store which could suck.

    Well that will be interesting to see how it does proform. The P55 Boards with 333 do have SATA 3 RAID 0 on them by the looks of it. But Yeah NEC USB 3.0 ?? Pft. I havent seen one USB 3.0 device. It will be awesome when its the norm because even with a "small" 8Gb USB 2.0 stick it just takes too long to move data. I should at least wait till the A's come out and see what the price will be. Because you dont have to use the 333 stuff you still have the intel SATA 2.0 and stuff. Hopefully they wont be too far away.
    When is the American Spring/Summer? In 2 days summer starts in Australia. We are currnetly in spring.

    Someone has posted a small test of the UD7 already, over at the XS X58A thread, 236 Bclk I believe on water.

    Winter started here 3 days ago

    When is the American Spring/Summer? In 2 days summer starts in Australia. We are currnetly in spring.
    Northern hemisphere and Southern hemisphere seasons should be approximate mirror oposites. This will mean NH Summer = SH Winter and visa versa.

    It's Winter here too, 5c in the dav time. Can't really immagine Christmas being in the summer, sounds real strange.

    Hey Guys. yeah 48 Pages. Thought Id revive it and catch up with everyone. Been real busy in life this year and havent had a lot of time. The Q9550 has been happily running @ 3.4ghz on stock everything for well months now and the only thing I need to really do is Get a better video card but the 2X HD4850 will do for now. Funds are being diverted to other area's in life and in the next year id say Ill have a baby on my hands so there wont be much money for the hobbies so to speak. Havent had anyother computer related problems except for CCC 10.6 not liking to be installed with CF enabled and BSODing afterwards. BBQ in the Snow. Sounds interesting. Got a new car a "Family" car. Not sure if i had said that anywere here before. Its still a good car. A toyota Kluger or Highlander to the American's.
