I was a little concerned about it getting an Editor's Choice award with only a score of 75, but after carefully reading the review and seeing the mammoth score of 245 in SysMark, I have to concur. This looks to be quite the board for stability and for some serious overclocking with the right set up. Doc, you'll just have to let us know how it works out in your gaming system. 8)

Yes, mad you are. :-)

HOW?

What utilities are you using?
What kind of clock generator are we dealing with? (what settings)
Is it the same for the D850Exx boards? (rambus versions).

I am actually looking for a micro ATX i850E board that can be overclocked, and currently there are none :-(
So if the D850EMxx can be overclocked, that solves my dilemma.. :-)

Sadly, the Doc has refused to answer 3 direct emails from me asking how in the hell you can overclock this Intel motherboard. It's not good kharma to brag that you can overclock this board (when normally Intel doesn't let you do such things) and then keep your lips clamped shut about the details.
What's up Doc?

I was under NDA not to discuss this matter but here is a link to where you can get the utility.

An NDA keeps me from going into details of many areas of Intels plans and future utilities.

I had a sneaking suspicion that Intel was applying the vise.
Such a revelation about an Intel board is truely astonishing.

Why does this board receive a lower stability rating than the Ausu PEP4 and several other boards? I quote the article, "The BTAP04EB passed all of our torture tests with flying colors and did not miss a beat. No BSOD lockups or abnormal behavior was apparent while testing this board. All in all a rock solid solution for your desktop is to be found here." If it didn't miss a beat, then isn't that as good as can be expected?
