Biostar sold a small run of these boards into the US that quickly sold out but is promising more by the end of the month. We were able to obtain a huge 501MHz front side bus with the TForce P965 that was solid as a rock with a little extra northbridge cooling. This awarded us a 3.512GHz clock speed from our lowly 1.87GHz stock rating.
The availability of high-speed FSB is something that is relatively recent to us enthusiasts. For a long time when the P3 and Athlon / Athlon Thunderbird were big, most chipsets could barely choke out 150Mhz true clock speed. After 200MHz became common, it's gone up considerably. NForce 4 saw speeds of 250 and 275MHz common, with the later revisions teasing at 300MHz. With this one able to crank out 500MHz, it shows a lot of promise, not only for the board, but for Intel's P965 chipset. Lots of room for growth. While they did rely on water cooling and got lucky with a choice CPU pick, the results are impressive. Brands aside, I would like to see the P965 put to the test in other manufacturers products.
