Hi guys,
I'm looking to buy an x58 mobo for an i7 920. I want to overclock, but nothing extreme (~3.2-3.6) an was wondering what would be the best LGA1336 motherboard? The Evga x58 or any of the P6T's (P6T, P6T OC/Palm, P6T V2, etc.)?
Most I'll be running is dual SLI (2 GTX 285's).
Thanks for the help :D

P6T Deluxe V2, though any of them can overclock relatively easy to 3.6 assuming cooled properly

Either will hit 3.6, the P6T Deluxe is the most stable board for higher overclocks.

If I were to run dual SLI would that run at 16x/16x or 16x/8x (bandwidth)? That's the most I'll ever go to. Are you recommending the P6T Deluxe?

ASUS FTW!!! I have always used ASUS motherboards because they have the best features. Don't worry about the P6T V2 cause you don't need to watercool the northbridge cause there is no memory controller so it runs cooler. Just get the P6T deluxe and be happy.

And the asus P6t is a good choice instead the evga X58?

Is it worth paying the additional $40 for the Deluxe?

Depends if you are going to use those extra features or not. I got the non-delux because I really don't think the extra $ is worth it for features that I will never use.

i suggest the p6t deluxe V2 but the p6t isnt bad at all. the evga isnt that special but they are all great.

Does it support Tri-SLI?, if so you made my choice a whole lot eaasier.

Can't help but agree...the P6T Deluxe is the way to go. Its just a nice board and the current bios is quite ripe for the pick'n.
