As the title really, what's the best for a decent price for overclocking etc.? Cheers.
i would also be very interested to know this as its the chip im about to purchase
P35 boards are known proven clockers. The newer X38's are too but are pricey as they're pretty much brand spanking.
Just got this
I have just got a Q6600 and a Gigabyte P35 DS4...
Does not run stinking hot like my 680i mobo
Overall a very nice board with silent cooling that does not run steaming hot!
If you want SLi though this is not the board for you.
Im using the P5K for my Q6600 and so far had no problems.
Can't recommend the Abit IP35 Pro enough.
If money is no object the Gigabyte GA X38 DQ6 or Asus Maximus Formula SE....X38 chipset.
If your not up to spending that much, you really could not go wrong with the Abit IP35 Pro....P35 chipset.
I am wondering some of these boards are in the region of £85 while others are like £170.
What are you spending the extra money on with the really expensive boards? Is it all that extra heatpipe stuff and watercooled NB's?
I mean don't just quote me some marketing guff but highlight some benefits that have real world use?
Another vote for the IP35 pro.....great board.
I am gonna be going for the P35 DS4 when i get my q6600, as will dabble a little bit with xfire, so that is my suggestion.
