You may also want to check out my bud Loki's VT6X4 review at Ars for comparison. He's been all over the RAM transfer rate issue on these VIA boards.
By the way, have you noticed how very hard the HardOCP has been lately? Unscratchable, inflexible, shatterproof hard. Kyle's kicked it into top gear over there. Catch his Abit GeForce review if you missed it. Fun to watch.
