I'm looking for a very stable motherboard for a Q6600 with 2-4GB RAM. I will not be overclocking this motherboard, I would just like to upgrade my current workstation to something a little more stable.
The requirements for the board will be:
* stable! I need my system as stable as possible, I don't need a lot of features.
* At least 2 x PCI-E slots, one for graphs, and one for Areca ARC-1210 RAID card
* 2GB RAM support minimum, and would be good if it were stable running on 4GB
My current config is:
- 30" LCD Dell Monitor
- Intel Core 2 Duo E6400
- 2 x 1GB Kingston DDR2
- Geforce 7600 GS
- P5B Deluxe Motherboard
- Areca ARC-1210 RAID Card (PCI-E)
- 4 x 320GB HD RAID 10
If you want stable and don't intend to overclock, you can't go wrong with an Intel made board. Sorry don't have any specific models to suggest, but when it comes to reliability/stability Intel boards can't be beat.
