Enjoyed the article, good read. I'd just like to mention that the 1/5 divider has been verified on the "cough" MSI KT3 Ultra. Check out the KT3 review at Lostcircuits. http://www.lostcircuits.com/motherboard/msi_kt3/
They utilize an oscilloscope to verify the 1/5 divider on the KT3. The only problem is MSI offers no official support for this hence no documentation or mention of it in the BIOS. I've personnally been running 166/166 on the KT3 for the last four months.

Does anybody know if the Gigabyte GA-7VRXP has the 1/5 divider? I sure hope it does...

Arrrrrrrrrrrrgh!

I could comment about the substance of the article (which wasn't half bad), but I don't want that to distract from the following:

LEARN HOW TO DO A FREAKIN' GRAPH !!

If you can't figure out how to do a simple graph, that's fine, nobody's good at everything; just leave out the graphs altogether if you can't understand the concept of effective scaling. (Hint- When the largest and smallest scores are within a percent or two of each other, the largest should NOT be over twice as long as the smallest.) This exaggerated scaling does not help to illustrate the point when it's THAT far out of proportion.

Yeah, how about a list of the motherboards that support the magical dividers...

Weshy, I second the hope that the GA-7VRXP supports them...I have a new one in a box sitting here waiting for my two Western Digital Special editions to arrive so that I can build my new box...

You know I really like mindless1's comments (and not just because I have the same belief in graphing methodology), but I have appreciated his stark but revealing comments, which thankfully contain comments, and not flames. (I think you'll notice we put more pix upfor our articles now, as you complained about in Dec last year).

I think we've already been trying to reduce this type of exaggerated graphing. We're still gonna keep working on it.

I've been reading up. It seems the Gigabyte doesn't support it!!! So I've decided to go the extra mile and get the Asus A7V-333R. Gigabyte were 1/5 off from providing the perfect board for me.
