This is the consensus I have seen on several forums. The DFI boards have great overclock potential but what would take 5 steps on an Abit boards takes 15 on a DFI.

Simplicity wins every time in my book, especially for those who have not OC'ed before.

It wasn't as easy as Abit's OC Guru that I've used on a previous motherboard. The voltage stepping was very low which was nice because you could change the voltage from say 1.5500 to 1.55625, which is decent stepping in my mind. Overall, it wasn't too hard to overclock on this motherboard but I just didn't feel like it was as easy as previous motherboards that I've overclocked on. Without further ado, let's get testing!"

From what Ive been reading here and other forums, it seems to be the same, any of the suggested boards should get to 3.6 on a Q6600, it seems to be a cpu issue if not. There is a thread about the GA P35 DS3 and it seems many are able to get 3.6 on that board.

Im probly going to get it mainly for the fact that Im familliar with the gigabyte bios, also the DS3L is only 90$ or the DS3R is 119$, the 1066 Ram support is nice as well. It seems to me that the only diff in the X38 board as far as performance goes is DDR3, and the option for crossfire, and personally, I dont buy ATI cards, so its not that appealing.

Im really not too concerned about higher FSB, my cpu is going to need alot of volts to reach anything above 3.4.

A lot of people rave about the DFI Dark but i'm convienced that the Abit IP35 Pro is a much easier BIOS to deal with. They are both amazing Q6600 OCer so the choice is yours.
The dark comes with an external cmos jumper, onboard reset+power switched and dont be fooled by "easier" bios settings. The dark is made for overclocking the q6600 and the more advanced options are ideal and CMOS Reloaded which makes switching from one OC to the next EASY!

AS a DFI P35 Dark user, you want this board.
