    Almost sub 7 second SuperPI 32MB!
    Lsdmeasap's 7min 6sec 660ms SuperPi 32m run with Core i7 Extreme 980X @ 5250MHz

    Hopefully next weekend I'll do better with a different CPU, review will follow hopefully soon after next weekend

    I thought the board was supposed to be below $300. With no sound card, no nf200 and very few USB connections, it would have been great. I am sure prices will come down a bit.

    Thanks man! Not my best overall, but best I've done on X58.

    I'm sure I'll get it under 7s soon, I probably could at those speeds if I would have used XP, but I already had win7 setup and ready.

    I'll be benching on XP soon for my review though, so I'm sure I'll do much better at PI there.

    Yes, this board is just really awesome to work with, I really hope they continue the "OC" lineup into 2011 socket!

    I'm sure that after this board the same tech will become more common-place , Gigabyte is hopefully already working on versions of this board for future releases . What platform is your best S Pi times on - can you give us a link please ?
    I'm hoping that Gigabyte South Africa will get a couple of these boards . I already noticed Gigabyte advertising board on South African Gigabyte tech forum phforums.co.za

    P67 is where I've done the best at for PI, could improve on that as well if I used XP or had a stronger CPU for it.
