Best socket 478 mobo for overclocking ?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Can someone tell me what mobo should I buy that's easy to overclock and also so I don't spend a fortune on it. I am planning to buy a laptop to completely replace my desktop so this is just something to do while on the holidays.
Thanks guys

Try any of the Asus P4P series. Haven't attempted OC'ing the processor/memory (until I get better cooling), but the P4P800-E Deluxe has an easy overclocker utility to safely OC upto 30%.

There are probably a dozen people that would buy that board off you in a flash.
