Hopefully he gets a new board that's stable

DFI should reliase "Our board is going to set a world record, lets give him whatever the hell we need"

well if you notice he says:

Ufortunately the board is quite unstable, maybe because it is an RA00 revision
All boards have crappy revisions and otherwise not quite as good performing as it'd like to be. Just like the NF7-S v1 and 1.2 boards, wasn't until the v2 that it really became a good overclocker

They aren't crazy they are XTREME!!!

It's a shame, I was sitting beside someone in my computer engineering class today who claims to be computer whiz, and we are currently working on building figurative client server network. I saw he was in the process of building his server, and he had choosen a horrrid Celeron processor. I suggested that he use the FX-55, he asked me how fast it was, I told him, and he proceeded to yell, "2.6GHz, that's all?!?! Are you kidding?!?! AMD sucks man!"

I simply smiled at him and remembered this thread.

Oh yeah...some computer whiz haha....I was already laughing when you said celeron muchless his ignorance towards AMDs.....you need to link him to the AMD FX-55 whooping the *** of the OC'd Intel chip that was at 5.2GHz

Then after his jaw hits the floor, give him a good slap across the face
