I'd like to buy a new motherboard for q6600. I use it almost 24/7 and also, I want to overclock it as much as possible. 3,4-3,5 ghz if possible (on air with z600 push-pull)! I have DDR2 rams... HELP please! :)

A good P45 board would be fine such as ASUS P5Q or Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS3R

Its good but its a mATX board,if you want ROG series,Maximus II Formula would be good

Well Maximus Formula has some extra features like LCD Poster,also a better cooling and usually ROG series OC better.
What's your budget ?

Almost 150 euros. But Maximus II Gene also has LCD poster and I think that the differences in the cooling system are trivial.

As i said GENE is a mATX board,do you need a mATX board ?

Not exactly but why do I have to pay 30 euros more? :S Will it serve me better?

As i said you can ASUS P5Q or Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS3R,they are both cheaper than Maximus II formula and are good boards with good reviews from the web

Okay. Thnx a lot. P5Q deluxe is on the same price as maximus II gene! Gigabyte is not sold here in Greece! Also, I think that gene has better cooling system, or not?

Both will be fine,however if you have an ATX case go for P5Q Deluxe.
mATX boards are mostly used in SFF cases

ATX require full cases?
