Best OCing board for C2D? - Page 2

post #11 of 20
Thread Starter 
I have had great luck with the P5B also.

I am going to build a new system for a family member, probably will go with the P5B, E6600, and XTeam memory.

Ys, but it disables the SATA once you get a pretty decent OC. Hopefully a BIOS update will fix that soon enough.

P5B Deluxe is the best, no problems board out there right now.

Hmm. Didn't have a problem with that yet even at 4GHZ.

At the moment the ASUS P5B DELUX Holds the crown. Can get up to 500FSB....The Wifi version is nice also however cant reach as High FSB as the Delux can.

The P5B-Express is only $150 and goes at least 525:

Everyone is vouching for the P5B, but what about the P5W DH Delux? Shouldn't that be a better motherboard for overcloaking?

Thread Starter 
I am curious about the P5W DH Deluxe myself, does anyone have any feedback about this board?
