Default The Gigabyte X48 DQ6 is A Monster.

Gigabyte X48-DQ6 Review - Overclockers Club

Specifically look at the 3Dmark06 tests.


Anyone should really hold out for the slew of X48 boards to come.

The cpu is seated so near the top on the X38 dq6 it's nearly impossible to place anythinthing there. TRUE or TUNIQ would be out of the question, at least with my case. I can just barely fit the small Dtek Fuzion block on it with the rad in there.

Well thats more of a Case problem than the motherboard. There are plenty of cases with more than enough room for that.
