  1. I've used the Gigabyte ep45-ud3r on 3 builds, and overclocked all 3. I built one with an E8500, 1 with a Q9400 and more recently 1 with an old Q6600. The board seems to have worked very well, and isn't expensive.

    Certainly people have had good luck with ASUS boards too and they'll probably chime in.
  2. - GigaByte GA-P35-DS3R
    - ASUS P5K DELUXE/WIFI-AP
    - ASUS P5W DH Deluxe.
    - evga 680I A1
  3. I prefer the Gigabyte P35/P45 motherboards.

    GA-EP45-UD3P | Q9550 OC'd to 3.6 GHz (425 MHz X 8.5) C3 stepping :(
    GA-EP45-UD3L | Q6600 OC'd to 3.6 GHz (400 MHz X 9)
    GA-EP35-DS3P | E7500 OC'd to 4.1 GHz GHz (373 MHz X 11)
  4. no not really i want a full size atx because micros dont seem to be very good at overclocking...at least being value boards they are not equiped to do so as well...not to mention full atx boards have more features as standard..more usb and so forth....so no i plan to replace the case..i think i may have an old full tower around i can use.
