    I like that one. Or how about only sending PMs to the winners, so that they must visit the forums to know that they've won.

    Gah, 3 is too little since you can get them all pretty fast. Now, if it were to be 20, that would be pretty decent I find. By the 20th post the user would have explored the forums enough and maybe call it his/her new home.

    I think that the winners should only be notified by forum PM. That way they will have to return to the site and see if they one, not just drop their entry and run!

    As for making a minimum post count: apparently an admin over at Overclockers Online simply deleted my forum account without warning for posting ten news articles in his members news section over the course of two days that were all leget and sourced. I had only 20 posts prior to this, but he has since deleted all posts, and contest entry.

    -- FSB Settings: 100MHz to 600MHz
    -- PCIe Settings: 90MHz to 150MHz
    -- FSB/RAM Multiplier: Auto, 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, 2.66, 3.33, 4.0+
    -- CPU Voltage Settings: 1.0250V to 1.6000V (in 0.00625V steps), 1.600V to 2.375V (in 0.025V steps)
    -- Memory Voltage Settings: +0.025V to +0.775V (in 0.025V steps)
    -- PCIe Voltage Settings: +0.05V to +0.35V (in 0.05V steps)
    -- MCH Voltage Settings: +0.05V to +0.75V (in 0.05V steps)
    -- FSB Voltage Settings: +0.05V to +0.35V (in 0.05V steps)
    -- tiplier Selection: Yes (unlocked CPUs only)
    -- DDR2 memory on this board can be pumped up to 2.575V and provides a generous +0.75V increase to the MCH to facilitate overclocking.
    -- It is not easy to hit the 300MHz mark that many Intel 975-based boards were able to achieve. With default voltages, the board makes 280MHz (1120MHz QDR) easily, and then it hits a wall. Beyond 280MHz, you will fight for every extra MHz. Increasing FSB voltage settings to its maximum and up to +0.35V on the MCH, managed to get a final overclock of 288MHz (1152MHz QDR). On the memory side of things, the board does unofficially support memory speeds up to DDR2-1066 with its 4x FSB-to-RAM memory multiplier option.

    -- (CPU multiplier) / 7 * (CPU frequency) = memory frequency
    -- For those who got DDR2-533, they can only get 490 data rate due to > 11/9 * 200 = 245 dual channel gives you 490mt/s at 128bit.
    -- Supports four unbuffered DIMM of 1.8 Volt DDR2 SDRAM
    -- Supports 800/677/533/400 dual channel DDR2 memory architecture
    -- Unofficially, the board can be configured up to DDR2-1066 to work with enthusiast memory modules.
    -- Get some really nice RAM modules for thisd board and stay away from the low end types. But man the DDR2 nice stuff is really expensive.

    Good thinking guys - although I think 10 is a good number.

    10 sounds fair.

    Read a newer review, they are hitting 350MHz+ easily now. The review you are quoting from is using a preproduction bios. Believe me, I have read every article on the web about this board......

    He also said he could post up to 490mhz
