cool, i shall look into that asus motherboard then.

what about this Asus P5K Deluxe's heat? any owners of the Deluxe experience any problems with 400FSB and unacceptable NB heat?
(im asking because i've only bought 1 chipset cooler, this board seems to need 2 chipset cooler, since SB's heatpipe goes through NB's cooler. )

so the review says P35's are worth getting? what about the users? the review didn't say anything about whether the chipset coolers are enough.

what i tend to do is look at other users here at OCN have setup if they use that mobo

most don't go for aftermarket NB coolers

reading the P5n32-e SLi tells me most people do use aftermarket NB coolers, so i bought a Tt Extreme Spirit II.......... but changed my mind on which motherboard, so..........

I thought 680i would be great for overclocking, but those were my first impressions, then people steered me toward the P35 chipset. Which is fine with me! It seems pretty mainstream if you aren't going SLI.

I'm the biggest supporter of the 680i boards (specifically the Asus board) on this site (check my guide in the sig). With that said, if you want SLI its the way to go. If SLI is not an option, then the P35 is a better overclocker.

I'm personally waiting for the intel refresh in the form of the X38. Rumour has it that it is similar to the P35 boards that have been overclocking so well but will also support SLI. My understanding is that the boards are due for release in August so you might want to wait and get the best of both worlds.

They are the same except striker has dual rail linked heatpipe cooling, onboard LCD, LED and all solid capacitors.
