Well, the P5B is the cheapest. I got the P5B-E. That anandtech review shows the board doing over 500FSB and it has the ICH8R chipset which is good. What is better about the deluxe anyways? Besides two PCI-E slots and the heatpipes?

If you're referring to this: Intel P965: Mid-Range Performance Sector Roundup, well I did not know that!

See, for when it comes to reviews, I honestly do not trust Anantech's Gary Key, he's the same douche that praised the nForce 4 MoBo for its ability to overclock and recommended that nForce 4 MoBos were better than the 975X, so that just tells me the guys has no clue or gets paid by nVidia to come up with such inaccurate statement.

But! I believe ASUS and it seems that the P5B-E is doing a great job at OCing. Now that I remember (vaguely), the P5B-E also comes with the choice of chaning the multi on a Conroe, not sure about Allendales though......So OK, the P5B-E seems like a great choice, "if" what Gary Key says it can do. Go for it!
