In the article cited below they use the "Asus P5WD2-E Premium." Why do you think they chose this motherboard?

There are no dumb questions, but those are some less than interesting answer options.

4) The P5WD2-WS Premium wasnt available to consumers yet.

5) They didnt want to test the Gigabyte 8I955X Royal's out of date chipset.

6) They didnt want to listen to the whine of the Gigabyte G1975X cooling for hours on end.

or

7) huhuh - he said poll.

Their article have caused countless victims purchasing the Zalman 9500 only to find their D805 overheating.
And worst of all, no one on this forum knows about it and I can't be bothered anwsering every overheating problem due to the mistake THG made.


Do your OWN research.
Make your OWN decisions.
Blame YOURSELF when it goes in the toity.

There is no instruction booklet on life...
but if there were I doubt it would be illustrated to your liking.
