    am i the only one who thought that X48 (and entire X4 lineup of chipsets) supports only DDR3? i like that DES thing, it seems to make a difference, they should solder it everywhere
    I feel like I should have a great idea right now. But I don't.....

    I have 4 PCs at home: 1 gaming system, 1 media center and 2 desktops for work/downloads. If this DES can be turned off during gaming then I'd be happy to use it on all my systems. Call me sentimental, but I like the idea of green computing - and that involves power consumption.

    ..X48 is essentially an X38 chipset that has been hand picked to run higher clock speeds and to support the 1600MHz FSB CPU when Intel finally releases it sometime this year.
    According to Gigabyte the GA-X38-DQ6 specs it does support 1600FSB...

    I think the original plan was for DDR-3 only support but I reckon Intel must have buckled into supporting DDR-2 as well.
