ok, so I want a new motherboard, but can't decide which way to go... I've currently got an E6300, 2GB G.Skill DDR2 NQ PC2-6400 (in another PC waiting to be used fully) and an ASUS P5NE-Sli 650i. I cannot stand this motherboard. It's incapable of picking up SPD timings correctly (this seems to be a feature as I know other people with the same board and problem). It will overvolt the CPU if I leave it on auto vcore when overclocking (a feature of the more recent BIOS udpates). It won't work with the G.Skill ram. The heatsink on the chipset gets insanely hot when overclocking. If you change a BIOS setting away from auto to something else, then back to auto it stays at the last manual setting half the time. I've tried upgrading BIOS etc, every RAM timing under the sun and so on and so forth. I'm board with this board and want a new one Please don't suggest anything by ASUS (or gigabyte as they may as well be ASUS in my mind). What do people think of the XFX, BFG, EVGA and co. who have recently started making boards? I reckon a DFI 650i board would be quite nice, but I can only find the 680 one's in the UK.
