Best socket 775 board for overclocking

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My friend and I are looking to revive an old gaming rig that has a Core 2 Quad Q9550 in it, but it is in an HP motherboard so it is not overclock able. I am wondering what motherboard would be the best, I would like the price to be below $150 if possible. This project will be made into a build log if we can get this little project of ours off the ground. I guess it would be our way of giving back to you guys for helping out!

Just find a gigabyte P45 board. There are a ton of different models, but they all perform great.

Gigabyte EP45 UD3R and P are quite good. You may also search for DFI LP DK P45 T2RS+
