i now have 5 gibabyte p35-ds3l boards, i justed replaced my sig rig with one. i have been able to get my Q6600's up to 3.6 with no problem, where as i could only get my 680i up to 3.2. i think that this board is one of the best boards you can buy, expecially with the price being below $100.

E6550 is a 7x cpu so go for Gigabyte P35-DS3L or ABit IP35-E for moderate OC. For high OC, may get a DFI Blood Iron.

linskingdom, what would be a high o/c for a e6550? i also have one of those, also running on the gigabyte board. i fold @ 3.2, 24/7 with absolutely no problems.
