The water cooling is RETARDED. Simple heatsink and fans on the NB/SB will let you still do some serious overclocking. Waterblocks on your NB/SB are NOT needed and that's why it's RETARDED. End of story

When you see pounds just double it and that's fairly close to what that is in USD. However USA prices are about 15% cheaper due to tax so I would say the board would be maybe $550 and that is a ****ing whole system. The board is not worth it and if you really did pre-order that board I will slap you

Yes the mobo is too expensive and a waste of money...you could get the same overclocks and stability on a $100 board if you wanted.

I bet my mobo, can perform better than his, with 8800GTXs in SLI..lol.. Mine is only $150, with no heatsink on the SB, and I got a pretty nice overclock. Temps are 48C load. No need for watercooling.

Yep the 650i chipset actually gets more frames in SLI (HAHAHA)

Yep he has a nice OC. 412 FSB right? Mine is at 450 to get 3.22. However my mobo is starting to act really weird and messed up the sound so recently i've put it at 429 FSB (3.0ghz) and this is why I want a new mobo becuase I know i can hit 3.3ghz or so with one.
