Seems like I might be able to go with the P5B. I feel like I'm doing something wrong if I spend more on the motherboard than the CPU

Anyone know the V-Dimm range on it though?

Go for the P5B Deluxe. If you want to save money go for the DS3. IMO, the DS3 > P5B-D, but I'm gonna get pawned by ASUS owners.

PWNGE!

don't get the P5B, just get the P5BD/wifi and you don't have to use the wifi part. better than getting just the P5B. but teh DS3 is a good alternative.

My whole family's always had Asus mobos and we've never had any problems...I don't want to try another brand unless it's huge savings and it won't be that much for me

I think I'll go with the Deluxe Wifi

I will also say that the P5B Deluxe WiFi is a better choice. You pay a premium price for some reason, such as Stack Cool 2 and better power management. So is it worth the extra $$$? I think so, if you want a kickass system that will last you for years.

Fellas, sorry to but in here, but I've been wrapping my brain over which Asus board to get (i have a good old asus deluxe for my barton 2500 at the moment) OK , no laughing thank you.

I want to overclock a e6300 and have been very impressed with what i've read about its overclocking capability. I'm not a mad overclocker so not after a 93% increase like anandtech got with the p5b-e asus board.

So I like the look of the p5b and e6300 and can't see the point in coughing up 50% extra for the deluxe version. All i want to know is can I get a pretty decent overclock out that board compared to whats out there?

With memory being crazy prices at the moment, i am just going to settle for some 675mhz chips. Also, Brisbane gets crazy temps in the summer which don't help with o/c too much.

Some thumbs up/pointers/review pages of the p5b or not would be appreciated.

Cheers!

next time start your own thread, but at least this isn't a total hijack. just read the above posts, they're about all you need to know. and good thing winter is here, cooler ambient means higher OCs.
