I'm not sure about this Nasgul. Last year I would have agreed wholeheartedly with you, but I have found that the Gigabyte 965p-DS3 is superior to the P5B. Yes, the wi-fi has some bells and whistles but in pure overclockability and smoothness of operation I have found the DS3 to be a great performer.

I found issues with the P5B in highly overclocked systems not being able to warm boot. I had to shut the system down and restart as the warm boot alway hung after 430MHz FSB. I also found that the Standby mode locked at anything after 430 FSB.

The Gigabyte 965P-DS3 had neither of these issues. I had no problem reaching 450Mhz FSB on either board but those above issues made the choice for my 6400's.

The P5W is a CROSSFIRE board. Technically its not made for SLI, but I guess with modded drivers you can get it to work. But if you're going to spend that much money on mobo, you might as well get an SLI board instead of hoping modded drivers work.

But I think the only other board that would work well would be a 680i board. And they are almost 80 bucks more then a P5B, like the eVGA one.

I disagree, I tried both boards and i would have to say that the P5B Deluxe is much better than the DS3 board. As far as your comment

I did not experience any of this problem but i must say for price comparison,I've taken my E6400 chip @ 490 FSB stable for $130 on the DS3 vs. E6400 @ 520FSB on P5B Deluxe for $200. If the extra MHZ. is worth paying extra then i would go with asus but if your on a budget then DS3 is a great board. The P5WDH board is a stable board also but only support crossfire. The maximum FSB that i hit on the The P5WDH is 430 FSB. You can go higher if you volt MOD it.

You are not reading my words correctly sladesurfer so your disagreeing doesn't fit my statement. The P5B Deluxe is one rung up from what I am comparing. I am speaking of the DS3($172.00CAN) vs P5B ($166.75CAN) in the comparison that I have used. Have you used the vanilla P5B Sladesurfer? I can not speak to the P5B Deluxe board as I have no experience with it.

Certainly my experience is just one person's with the P5B board and it could well be an anomaly. I do not buy another of the same board when I experience such issues. I went with the Gigabyte as I had built a few for friends and found them very workable.

I also only use a 427MHz FSB as my nominal folding power but it will easily take 3.6GHz and a 450MHz FSB. Both boards did this. The problem was not ever the overclock, rather the issue was the warm boot and no standby and this was with the P5B which falls within the price range of the DS3.
I wonder if anyone else out there had these issues with the P5B?
