    You have to wait about a week for it to show up on <A HREF="http://www.pricewatch.com/" target="_new"><b><font color=blue>PriceWatch</b></font color=blue></A>

    :smile: Good or Bad have no meaning at all, depends on what your point of view is.
  4. Looks good! I already ordered a K7 Master, which will do me fine, but this board certainly does look to have some nice features.

    One thing to remember, even though it has 4 DIMM slots, you have to use ECC memory in order to use more than 2. Not a huge deal of course, ECC doesn't cost much more than the regular memory, but it's something to be aware of.

    All in all, looks like a nice board, looking forward to some reviews!
