post #101 of 110
It's a great board, but you should really think about a P45 over the P35's.

yea i have the improved version of this board, its great! unfortunately my RAM is limiting me, it likes tight timing but not high frequency so my OC is limited to 450FSB and i used to have a e6420 i could hit 3.44 Stable for 8hours of prime so good luck!

Yep I am still doing it on a P35...not because I have to..but because I want to

Just ordered another P35 to set up. They are so cheap now...and we know what they can do.

You'll get a good run out of it. Maybe 440 FSB stable with a lot of juice. The P5K runs out of steam on quads after about 450 FSB. Unlocked multiplier is the ticket.
