i dont see why all bios dont have the option to unlink the memory so much easier for overclocking.

I just noticed on the Biostar TP43 board, there is a 4-pin Molex on the board that supplies additional power to the graphics card??? Never seen that on a board before. Would i need to use this in addition ot the 6-pin PCI-e adaptors that that GPU needs anyway?? Is there a possibility of OVER-supplying the card with power or is more always better?

I'm about 90% sure i'm going Biostar. I've read reviews on a lot of their boards and they seem like main contenders. Cheap doesn't mean inferior by any means.

I suppose i've just never noticed a molex on a motherboard before. If its nothing new i must have just overlooked it in the boards i've seen.

Heh, my old KN8 had a molex on the motherboard. That isn't a new thing.

Well according to the manual, it supplies extra power to the PCIx16 slot. Which is why i was wondering if you would plug that in AS WELL AS the 6-pin PCIe connector that the card itself requires.
