ON my P5K deluxe I am stable @ 3.4 and have suicided past 4.0...
on the same cooling system and same NB SB coolers...

How about a Q6600
P5K Deluxe
8800 Ultra (you can buy an OC edition if u want or OC ur self)
and 2GB team extreem RAM

That will last u for at least 2 years, and will cost less then 2 SLied 8800GTXs especially in power bills....
That sounds good

Are there any other motherboards like the p5k that are good at OCing for quadcores?

Forget i mentioned the whole SLi deal in the first place.

Also is there much of a difference between the p5k and the p5k deluxe?

It's mainly a gaming and school work machine. the e6850 sounds like a better fit really. And considering they are clocking quite high, it can smooth over the cracks slightly where the Q6600 has the advantage.

the P5K deluxe has the added WiFi 8phase power deliverance...make a difference in OC

Uses the stack to cool 2 design which lowers chip temps, and has beefier heat sinks...

any of the P35 chipset Mobos do a real nice job but the top one is the Asus P5K...

in second place is trhe Gigabyte DS3 check it out

WOW... price drops already showing through...but I suggest u pre order with tank guys for the G0 stepping Q6600...
