 I don't think the price of ram will go up just need a little more of it but for once I would like to see MB prices drop back down. 3 years ago paying over $200 for a MB was almost unheard of now it's hard to find a decent enthusiasts class Mb for under that. Pair that with paying 2 -3 times what psu's used to costs due to more wattage demands and it's just a bit disappointing. No wonder watercooling and overclocking are really taking off. Speaking of watercooling anyone want to place bets on who the first company will be to have a waterblock for the new socket? My money's on EK.

What we need is someone to come in and make a awesome board that everyone whats. Like the NF7-S. Some one needs to rock the motherboard market. ATI just did it to the graphics cards.

Oh and i'll take that bet. I'm going with dangerden.

 ya think so huh. they are pretty good at staying up to date on hardware but I think they are a bit slower then EK. I just hope it's not some no name cheapo company that releases crappy blocks right off the bat. Either way I don't think I will be purchasing anymore DD products. Not after how they have just recently treated me.

 they're blocks are pretty decent. reliable atleast. many companies you can't even say that about. Heck my Wc setup I had was completely DD products 100%. NOt 1 leak at all in over 2 years.

 ABit is not out of the Mb market. they just aren't as atcive and release fewer mb's. Abit used to be a top notch mb company but a few years back really dropped the ball and took some bad marks on customer support and reliability.

 Holy crap. that sucks. But hey didn't i just see a pic of an Abit x58 mb to be released. If they are going out of the MB market why are they making a new MB.

They are running out the last of what had been in R&D . They are to exit the motherboard market by years end, but will continue the support  as promised to stock holders.

Indeed they where bob. I still have a p4 2.4c overclocked to 3.5 on a ic7-max3 rocking away. As a matter a fact it is the most stable, not to mention the  highest overclocking motherboard i ever had. That board could boot that cpu all the way to 3.9 on water and ran out of cpu cause the board had more in the tank.

I had a NF7-S 2.0 and a barton 2500@ 2.2GHz. Loved that combo. My psu fried it though[:(]

The P4 2.4c was a overclockers dream back in the day.
