    Nice man! I love those backplates AMD puts on their high end cards. No SuperPi 32M numbers?

    What's that CPU gadget showing your core activity called?

    Nice. I wish windows gadgets looked as good as some of the rainmeter gadgets though. Those are awesome.

    Nice setup! I overclocked my 680 a little bit and was able to pull P10800 in 3DMark11. My old WCed, overvolted, and highly overclocked 470 only managed 6500 on a good day!

    Really? I'm rocking an Asrock and it has worked fine for me. Granted, the first one I received was messed up but the RMA that replaced it has been 100% rock solid. I don't really OC at the moment so they may not be good at that. I can't confirm nor deny that at this time.

    Either way, your rig is looking nice there Mikey.

    Bingo. I've never had a DOA board from Asus, Gigabyte, or MSI. I bought a Biostar board last time and I won't be doing it again. I'll be sticking to the big three.

    Intel makes the most stable boards but they are very conservative with OCing.
