I want to get to at least 3.2-3.4GHz with my Q6600 G0 and TRUE, 3.6 would be even better (for 24/7 use). Should I go with the Gigabyte? Should I get the DFI DK P35 T2RS regardless of the lack of firewire, esata, and WiFi and bad NB/SB/MOSFET heatsinks? Should I spend a bit more and get the abit IP35 Pro? I just want a good, stable overclock with DDR2 800 Crucial Ballistix RAM (2x1GB). Thanks for the help.
No offense at all man, but haven't you posted threads similar to this one several times already? I'm trying to be as nice as can be here, but I think it's time you just throw down and get the one that instinct tells you to get. We all want the perfect mobo, but there really is no one perfect mobo for everyone. You just have to find the one with the features you want that is recommended by actual users of the board, not what people hear/say. I can only recommend my DFI DK in my sig for LGA 775, simply because it is the only one I have tried. I bit the bullet, hoped for a good one, and I am pleasantly happy with this board. It OC's great, has pretty stable voltages, and plenty of BIOS options. Is it perfect? No, not by any means. But I am happy with the price/performance of this board. But I won't tell you to get it because for 1: the board you get might not be as stable as mine, and 2: I don't really know what features you want.
I apologize if I in any way sound rude here, but ya just gotta go with your gut sometimes. Sometimes you win, sometimes you don't, but you at least have to try.
