I have figured that most people are hitting a NB wall so I am trying to do as much as I can by getting the best air cooling available...
yes...and no. Any SLi shipset is going to have OC limitations, as they are all stuffed with PCI-e lanes. More data to corrupt = less stability.

The NB's are little space heaters though, so achieving the highest OC you could, before chipset limitations occur, would mean an 'icy' NB for sure.

I've had great success with the ASUS Commando for my quad core (3.9GHz OC, and 460 FSB (not at the same time)), and Knitelife uses the P5K and has run his over 4.0GHz. So those two boards seem to handle quads pretty well. Also I think that using a PSU with an 8-pin CPU connector could make a difference.

Before I purchased my motherboards, I read several reviews that talked about how some good overclocking boards just did not get along with the Quads. They OC, but not like some of the other boards. The P5B-Deluxe was one of the highest rated Quad overclocking boards. Since then, the P35 chipset has come out, and it seems to realy like the quads. I can only assume that the X38 will like the quads just as much, and have SLI so you will get the best of both worlds.
