You mean the P5B?

If you get one of those, you should get the Deluxe version. It overclocks much better.

And the price is much higher

Tell me what to expect from this mobo, don't tell me what to get, I ain't shallow-minded

510FSB is what it has to offer (the p5b-dlx), w/ the right cooling and RAM.

There are very limited voltage options on the P5B, but the Deluxe version fixes all of the voltage issues.

Or if you have the guts, you can mod the P5B to be better than the Deluxe.

I'd go with the P5B anyway. The E2160 doesn't need a high FSB.

It all depends on the processor.

Sure it is possible, but listen to what people are saying. If you are that concerned with how high you can overclock, take the advice of those saying to get the P5B Deluxe.

As an extra note, I own 6 of them, and they are great boards. I did purchase one of the open box ones from Newegg and it worked as well as the others, but at a price of only $119. Might seem a bit risky, but all depends on how much you want to spend, and how well you want to increase your chances of getting the OC you desire.
