P5B or P5B-D? E6600

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm currently planning to upgrade from AMD 3000+ to an E6600. I'd like to get the best motherboard to overclock it in a price range from 150$ to 350$. It doesn't have to be specifically Asus either.

I went to ncix.com (where I'll be purchasing) and saw the P5B as the top bought motherboard but since most people here where talking about the P5B-D I'd like to know if it's really worth getting.

Note: I'll be aircooling.

Thanks for your help.

Those have a P965 chipset, and the latest chipset from Intel is the P35 which will support a 45nm CPU, a.k.a. Peryn.

And also is currently the best overclocking board for dual and quad core Intel processors.

The ASUS P5K-Deluxe (not to be confused with the P5K3-Deluxe) is the top choice right now, with the P35 chipset an the ICH9-R.
