Another thing, the G41 (my old board was also G41) is not ideal for overclocking. I hit an fsb wall at 343 MHz, and other people also tend to complain about that.
Guys, i don't have any more money frown.gif trust me i would if i did, but i can't..so please help me choose 1 from those.. i would not overclock my Q6600 over 2.8-3.0.. and i plan to use Patriot DDR3 8GB (2x4GB) 1333MHz G2 Aluminium CL9 PGD38G1333ELK with it.. so which one should perform the best ?

I checked the specs of your chip, you should not have trouble getting 3 GHz even with the G41 chipset as 3 GHZ would use an FSB of about 333MHz. Just keep in mind that you might need a better cooler.

Sorry, I've no experience of the boards you have posted about, but I will say I used to have an Asus P5Q (well, actually I still do - it's now overkilling in my fileserver) and I expect you could pick up a second hand one for a good price - it's a very nice board.

I have some pretty nice cooler in mind which i will probably get, but now that i am getting a P41/G41 board, could you pick the best 1 from those 3 i offered ? smile.gif

I couldn't find any information about the P41 chipset, but the G41 should be fine as long as you don't push the clocks too far.

EDIT: The different G41 boards should be similar, so there you just need to look at stuff like the form factor, number of ports, etc.

all i'd be worried about a side from the chip set is the VRMs while no one talks about some low end 775 boards also have crappy VRM setups and if you over clock on them you just fry the board.

I once had 50 dollar a 41 chipset board alot like the GA-G41MT-S2PT assuming it isn't the same board that i had, i also had a high FSB chip but, dual care and it hardly OCed at all, and the other one i got an MSI board fired and every single one i got back form RMA too for that matter, i was lucky i didn't catch fire, OC or no OC it was total piece of crap.

No if your not over clocking and they all support 1066 fsb i wouldn't have even wasted my time making this thread because they all will work. IMHO i'd lean towards the ASUS because they are usually really reliable boards, my friends 775 board is working fine after about 5 years, it's even OCed and this is after spilling candle wax on it and having parts fall off.

why do you need more than 4GB. what app are you running which requires more than 4 GB RAM. spending money on LGA775 board is waste of money. if you can't upgrade to LGA 1155 stick with your current setup for a while. save money for a entry level core i5 and upgrade later.

well he never mentioned it was to overclock so he could be asking because his motherboard broke or is having problems.
