I already have been paypaled 65 bucks. There was nothing wrong with it I just wanted a new board heh. I don't like the main power connector placement on the board as well as mine didn't like anythiing over 429 FSB and when I heard that the DS3R was a crazy overclocker board with a good layout I was all over that :P

Sora,
I'd like to know how the artic freezer pro 7 is sitting on the board. I have heard that some boards this HSF might present a problem.

The board is only like 100 new and It has been used for almost 7 months so 65 is a good price really.

Also in regard to how the Arctic freezer Pro 7 sits on the DS3R. The Heatsink of the cooler sits about a 1/4th of an inch above the northbridge heatsink. it's not much but yes it doesn't touch so it clears the fins just fine heh. I was worried about that myself becuase the P5N-E didn't clear it however the DS3R does clear with an Arctic Freezer Pro 7

Hmmm is the tuniq 120 better then the Arctic Freezer Pro 7? I'm strongly considering the ds3r mobo now, so you would be a good adviser since you already seem to have a lot of experience in it.

The Tuniq 120 is considerably better, than the AF7 Pro. It's just more money, that you would have to pay for. I would recommend the AF7 Pro, for dual cores, because of it's low price. The Tuniq, I would recommend more for quad cores, since they put out quite a bit of heat.
