You may be falling onto the "It's new so it must be the best" bandwagon....
Show me a 680i hitting the FSB that the P35s here on this forum are getting with quads.

Sure if you wanna make a big investment in DDR3 that is still just figured out. I know the timings and speeds are going to get better and the prices are gonna drop. PCI-E 2.0 I don't know much about but it sounds like the same issue you are going to see with DDR3.

I recommend the P5K3-Deluxe to people with "unlimited" funds that can buy some DDR3 right now and not mind upgrading it once DDR3 is refined more.

some of the p35's already support DDR3, like the gigabyte one, but, yea i'm in the same boat, getting a 2140 just for fun and wanna get new mb for this 4300 , oh decisions decisions.

Yeah I'm skeptical about the Cost-To-Benefit on the X38. I can't imagine DDR3 doing anything more considering I get 300FPS in Counter-Strike Source lol.

So you think the P35 then?

Wow, this exactly what I'm talking about. I said explicitly I wasn't making any claims which one was better. And in order to say the P5k is better than the 680i, I need some evidence/proof. Making implications with numbers that aren't included with the above quote is not evidence. So far, you've proved nothing.

Like I said, I made no claim which one was better. But I haven't seen any evidence that the P5K overclocks better (either a high or average) than the Evga 680i. (Or vice versa.)

PS: And someone simply saying "I got my P5K or Evga 680i up to this!" is not evidence. At least not credible evidence. But I'm sure you know that.

Absolutely if you don't need SLI or Crossfire. Well there is Crossfire but 16x and 4x seems.. meh.

Ok so you are gonna make me find the threads... *sigh* I assumed that you had seen this threads with all the hits they have. Sorry that they weren't linked in my above post for your convenience.


P5K Deluxe + Q6600 @ 4395.59 MHz

Q6600 B3 ES @4009Mhz - Asus P5K Deluxe + 14-18C ambients

Ok now where are the 680i quad core clocks at?

I've seen alot of people running 680i boards with quads. I can't recall ever seeing them reliably over 3.4GHzish on them either.

You find them. You made a claim, now back it up.

Find the dual cores if you would, too. EDIT: (because the threads original poster has an e6400, it would be more relevant to find this.)

I've been hearing the Intel chipsets are the best for overclocking and that the 680i's are for SLi or something?

Whats the best chipset for a Intel CPU and Nvidia Card while overclocking? lol
Look at my system. I have an Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Processor, an Intel Bad Axe 2 Motherboard, and an eVGA e-GeForce 8800GTX Graphics Card. My E6600 can overclock to 3200MHz (400x8) with the help of my Bad Axe 2 and my Tuniq Tower 120. My 8800GTX is overclocked to 600MHz Core and 2000MHz Memory.

I would go with an Intel Bad Axe 2 975X, Asus P5N32-E 680i, or Asus P5K P35 Motherboard.

How about you tell me what your best FSB is with your 680i? If these quads are doing better than your C2D that'll tell you something in it self don't you think?

And for C2D I'm rocking 500Mhz FSB 24/7 at ease. Oh yeah let me mention... I had an Evga 680i AR, A1, and Asus P5N32-E SLI 680i all on water for the NB. NONE of them would get my E6300 over 490MHz FSB. My Evga's would do 480Mhz, the Asus would do 490. You tell me to do the research and guess what, I have with my own money.

I'm not just pulling my recommendations from the place the sun doesn't shine. I'm going off personal expeirences. It took me a good month to get the Evga to hit 480MHz FSB. I popped the P5K outta the box, changed the CPU VCore and Memory Voltage and left the rest at auto. I then put the FBS to 490 and it booted right up 100% stable. I have since worked up to 504MHz FSB but due to the 500MHz FSB strap I have moved back down to 499MHz FSB.

What else would you like to know?
