    What X58 for i7?

    Hey I was wondering what X58 board to get with the i7? In that I mean the memory voltage fix that allows you to run memory over the 1.65v that intel is saying is the safe zone?

    The memory I was looking at is the Ballistix Tracer DDR3 PC3-10600 @ 1.8v. The timings are set at 6.6.6.20 at that voltage. Anyone know?

    Thanks..

    DFI, I believe.

    After reading a little bit I hear that the memory voltage problem was with early engineering samples of i7? And that voltages of 1.8 to 2.0 are ok? One of the boards they were talking about was the Asus P6T. This voltage thing still seems to be a mystery.

    The problem may be with the cpu memory controller, not the board. As noted not much is known yet.
