More about : chipset q9300 mayouuu July 4, 2008 10:04:56 PM Well, this board has one of the best options for de chipset but not the best in the powe phases for a Quad Core processor. I would go P35 DS4 or higher or ASUS P5Q Deluxe or Premium. eckosof July 4, 2008 10:23:10 PM how do you determine power phases? i would like to do some more research into this, can you explain how to know whats a good board in terms of power phases?

I have it stable at 400MHz with my Q9450. I can't really get it stable much beyond. kad July 4, 2008 11:33:16 PM eckosof said:after considering your reply ive come across this for 200 bucks, ASUS P5Q Deluxe LGA 775 Intel P45 Intel Motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
