When are Intel based NV 500 series mobo's coming out? I'm a big fan of the nVidia chipsets and the new features in the 500 series seem very promising. I'm also hoping that they may allow for better tweaking than the Intel chipsets. (I'm hoping to get an C2D E6700 to put in it btw) Anyone have anymore info on them? THANKS!

I got an email from DFI saying their 590 would be here in august.

i think they will be comming out during august, but not very overclockable... 320FSB stable. R600 can achieve higher clockage

what makes u think they won't be overclockable?

320mhz isn't a bad number when you consider they're supposed to run at 266mhz.

I remember the days when you could barely get 20mhz out of a chipset.

shamino on vrforums got his hands on an 590 chipset, reaches only 320mhz fsb whilst other motherboards are hitting 400-450mhz, considering the fact that conroes have lower multiplier= harder to OC compared to other cpus

ah ok. gotcha. i still don't think 320Mhz is a bad overclock... even compared to ATI's intel chipset.

for a lot of ppl who want to reach 3ghz for the E6600, 320mhz FSB wont do... ive see 480 mhz on gigabyte DQ6 8O 8O

So basically the nVidia based mobo's are gonna be crap for OC'ers. Hmmm... well that sucks! I'm hoping to get an E6700 and OC it, but if a 320 FSB is my limit then I won't be able to go past 3.2GHz. Bummer. Well, I've also read of a lot of problems with the Asus 975X boards out there... what's a good choice then? (yes, I'm also doing reasearch for myself, but I'm trying to draw from the experience of the boards ;)  )

gigabyte DQ6 board reached 480mhz fsb, asus p5w should be able to reach the 400mhz area
