Asus M3A78-T and Phenom II X3 720BE
This motherboard has been on the pile of 'to-test' for quite some time now, but this week, I had the time (and the courage) to open the box and compare it to the Dfi Lanparty DK 790GX and Foxconn A7DA-S.
Since the normal test procedures are finished, I'm switching from my old 9950BE to the newer 720BE for some overclocking.
More to follow.

First problems already start to pop up: I'm unable to boot with a divider higher than 533MHz, whereas this was no issue with the 9950.
Something memory controller related? We'll keep you updated!
what happened to the fan clips :)

Some updates on the divider problem.
At first, I thought it may have something to do with the onboard gpu, the HD3300, using the sideport memory. I tried again with a different external videocard, the 9500GT, but the 667MHz divider did not work either. So, it's not the IGP.
Secondly, I thought it may be a memory bank issue, so I switched memory to the two black slots. But again, the 667MHz divider did not work.
I also tried the 800MHz divider, but ... no succes :(

The problem seems to be memory-related. With the Crucials I'm able to work with divider 800 :)
what were you using before?
