What motherboard OCs a Q6700 the best?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Ok gonna buy a OCing board for my Q6700 to OC on air. Also gonna buy either a Tuniq or a True and lap it with some gaming ram. So what board offers the highest but stable OC on air? Sli and crossfire isn't an issue since i only need one card. Also 45 NM compatibility isn't an issue since this processor isn't going any where for a LONG time.

Q6700 is a 10x CPU. Assuming that it will be able to reach 4GB, which is the limit for typical air cooling so the fsb is around 400. All P35 or X38 boards are able to do this so fsb should not be the key factor to pick the boad. Depending on the budget, I would go Abit IP35-Pro, Asus P5K-E or DFI P35 Dark for P35 boards and Gigabyte X38-DS4 or DFI LP X38 for x38 boards.
