Help me upgrade my motherboard (Q6600):

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Current Rig. setup is listed in my sig.

I got my ASUS P5N32-E SLI to 3.0GHZ on my Q6600, but it seems I am hitting a wall as these MB's are not well suited to Quads.

I've been doing a lot of searching on these forums, but I am still not sure what to get.

So I need a recommendation (links to NEWEGG with product information is a massive plus) on what motherboard to upgrade too.

Don't care for SLI (running one single 8800GTX), don't care for raid, don't care for a lot of things save that it will work with my existing equipment and provide me with better overclocks.

Thanks!

EDIT: Encl. picture of my Rig. (first time building a computer)...is that Tuniq Tower Backwards...maybe?

well all of my quads are running on the Gigabyte P35-DS3l. you can get to 3.2 with no problems. all of mine can get to 3.4, and 2 of them with the lower VID can get to 3.6. if you do a thread search, you will see there is a huge thread on this board.http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128059

Wow.

That is cheap compared to the board I bought (when I got it new).

Rock on! Any other ones like this that would work in my build? Does the Tuniq Tower work with that motherboard?
