Well I finally jumped ship and just purchased an Intel board, an asus P4C800 with a 2.8 800mhz chip. What im shakeing my head about is that with the same ram that runs in both boards intel or amd in the Nforce based amd board (abit or asus) I could not achieve a stable clock above 208fsb. However I have not even had the chance to get an adapter so I can put my waterblock on this intel processor so im just running it with the stock big aluminum oem heatsink. Why does the same ram run so much higher in fsb than in an amd based board? Are the available amd board chipsets that far behind?
