I am seriously considering the Jetway HA04- Extreme as my next MOBO for my Spider Platform http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813153097. BUT!! I'm curious as to how high the Multiplier can go because I plan on having the 9850 Black Edition @ 3.0 GHz by setting the Multiplier to 15.

I can't find any website that even has a review of the board. Is their anyone out there who knows someone (or who owns the HA04 Extreme) that can answer this question for me?

The 9850 BE's stock multiplier is 12.5x. I think 15 is a reasonable thing to expect, since the X2 6400+ has a multiplier of 16. Getting the 9850 to 3.0GHz stable is quite a goal. Good luck with that.

Unless there is a particular feature you love about this Jetway board I would pick a different brand (there's a cheaper DFI on newegg, or a Gigabyte).

What I like about the Jetway is the DIY clear feature :bounce:  (how I can clear the cmos by just pushing a button on the I/O panel). And I also like the POST LED :D  so I can know exactly what's going on without any guess work.

If your talking about the DFI Lan Party http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813136044 I though about that board. The MSI K9A2 Platinum http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130136 was my other choice. But I'll be temped to fill all the PCIe slots with video cards if I get the DFI or the MSI. That's money I really don't want to spend (as well as a temptation I know I can't fight).

I've read ALOT :pfff:  of reviews about the struggle to keep the 9850 stable at 3 GHz.

Multiplier can go as high as the CPU can go. The multiplier isn't set by the mobo but rather by the CPU.
