Ive only got the DRV4

But im real happy with it ive had it about 2months now and in all honesty its pretty damn good. They look good and feel well made, with lots of functions for agp overcolcking eg. modify board voltage from the agp socket etc, The only thing you may have trouble with if its anything like mine is the northbridge fan, i have now replaced it with water cooling but it was about the noisiest little fan i ever heard. worked but whinned but then i have no cpu fans.

Good luck with your buy, and if you h8 it you can always sell it to me.

Im with wooden man, the board looks cool and runs well. I just wanted to point out that drv4 also has ATA 133 support, I have a maxtor ATA 133 hard drive but windows XP doesnt support 133... not yet anyway all other windows OSs do I think. Only difference in the drv5 is that it uses 333 mhz ddr RAM but that alone is reason enough to get it, wish i knew it was coming out i just bought my drv4 about a week b4 the drv5 came out...
