Also what are some of the dumb features i should turn off on this board? i turned off most of them but i wanna make sure i didnt miss any there were a few that i didnt know what they were and they gave a vague description.

Waiting for suggestions since I just got my 3820 mounted last night. So far I havent done anything but change my multiplyer to 43. Runs fine and never seems to get over 64 running burn test and Kombuster at the same time. Not sure if it was correct but a couple times with just burn test running while monitoring in Core Temp my power consumption jumped up ... one time to 715 watts? Not sure if it was just a bad reading or what exactly to think of it lol.

30,000 wow... nice power supply... and future proof you could run 60 7970s if they ever make the super eatx. Buyer beware may not fit into your case. Must be reading it incorrectly and maybe I shouldnt be worried... just had it up to 1019watts... its while im doing a load test and then open a program or require somthing of my processor.
