Thanks for both of your help, guys. The board should be here this week - ordered just before the rush and paid extra for shipping. All set and ready to replace my almost-burnt-out Asus; it was not in good shape when I got it, but I have had the Phenom running at 2.0ghz on it to reduce it's impact on the board, which did not support the 125 watt CPU, but only 65~95 watt CPU's. The underclocked proc, even under full load with no voltage change, will only burn 100 watts. So while I should be fine for now, I wanted the 3.0ghz clock so that I can feel somewhat justified running the SMP client on it and it still pay off. I could run it now, but a sngle WU would take 3-6 days depending on size, compared to the 1.5-2 days it takes at 3.1ghz.
