So, the E6400 isnt worth the extra few bucks. I thought I read something about the E6400 being easier to overclock because of something with the multi's unlocked, maybe?

Also, would the P5b deluxe be worth getting over the DS3, which one is a better OC'er?

The multi on the E6400 isn't unlocked, it's just at 10x compared to the E6300 which is at 9x

The P5B deluxe should OC about the same as the DS3, maybe a little bit higher

What are some pros and cons for both the DS3 and the P5B deluxe? I cant decide which one would suit my needs better.. I dont NEED Raid. It just needs to OC well but the price of the DS3 is starting to sway my vote... Is it worth it to grab the P5B Deluxe instead?
post #10 of 25
The P5B has a second PCIe slot? An extra Sata port?

That is all I can think of

EDIT: The P5B might OC a little bit better
