$285 for the "regular" and $299 for the version with wireless.

Not sure if it's pre-order or what, though. I e-mailed them to inquire.

EDIT: Right after I posted, I got an e-mail...it's just the pre-order, but the sales rep says Atacom is "the first one getting that board." Hmph.

If Gigabyte includes a thorough and overclocker-friendly BIOS like ABIT and ASUS does, then it'll be really awesome.

I really want to try the asus.

Had an abit, a AMD, but a abit none the less and it was good but very delicate.

Gigabyte is going to cost too much for me.




Does that atacom have high prices all around or is that a good board price? I was wondering if someone like newegg could throw it down for 225!

Probably a bit high, as the Canterwood boards have been rumored to enter the market at less of a premium than the Granite Bay boards did. Usually whomever is first out of the gate offering it for sale charges a good 20% more, just to rack up some extra money on each sale.

Aye, there's the rub...

I wonder if they're similar in price (I think the 800 MHz will be $20-$30 higher from what I've read), will anyone buy my 3.06? :(

We still need to see brand-specific reviews, but THIS ONE looks like the king to me...

From my experience, ASUS and ABIT are fairly close in terms of overclockability, and most of the time ASUS boards read thermal sensors/diodes much better than ABIT ones.

Would like to bump it up to 233fsb.

I didnt know if they were pushing the current p4 to its limits like AMD did with the barton. Or is this chip a remake?


Anyone have a link to the planned 800mhz fsb chipsets. There is more planned than the workstation version right?

Looks like it's "targeted" at workstations somewhat, but even the boards manufactured by Intel have overclocking features in their BIOSes, so it's aiming for both the workstation and enthusiast markets.

Once actual reviews of specific boards start showing up, then I'll get the credit card out...
