I have the S939 infinity. Basically identical except for the CPU socket they put on it.

 

I'm running 301x9 right now without any problems.

 

BIOS is a bit quirky (has some outright errors) and the chipset fan sucks, but other than that it is an excelent budget overclockers baord.

the rig is running fine, but i found there was a HUGE problem. the vdimm was undervolting. when i set it to 2.7vdimm it was actually running @ 2.6. so i set it up to 2.8vdimm. and yea overall for a budget rig it runs pretty good. heres some benchies. 5481-3dmark05 12632-3dmark03 23224-3dmark01. and for aquamark it gets 68k. once i get better cooling for it ill try to push it more.

that looks like an interesting build! Since I haven't used any AMD64's under 3200, so I'm just curious. Do you think the 2800 will bottleneck the system when lined up with the 6800gt? I'm just wondering because I know the 6800gt is a great card, and I don't have any firsthand experience with a 2800.

it did bottleneck the 6800gt under 4Xaa but once i got it to 2.3ghz it worked pretty good. once i get better cooling for it ill push it even more. once that issue was resolved im interested in a 6800gt now.

remeber what I told you about my 3000+ and 7800GT, at stock speeds on everything my system ran nearly the same with a 6800/x850xt/7800GT, add in a small 2.1OC and the 6800 shows itself to be "crap" by comparison, get a full blown OC out of it and the 7800GT makes the x850xt cry. So yes, they botteneck like hell :lol:

 

try setting your 3700+ to an 9x multiplier (from stock speed) and feel the BF2 laggyness :D
