I have a 965p-ds3. works great. before this board I had an Asus A8V deluxe. It was good also. With the ds3, I have my 6300 oc'd to 2.8 without any problems. I know most other have done better than this, but I have a stock cooler & am running 667ddr2. So far, no problems at all. Would get another, this time a p35. Hope this helps.
