P5K-SE or GA-P35-DS3L?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Simply question,

My local store has the P5k-se in stock and I want to upgrade my motherboard. I would have to order in a ga-p35-ds3l which is the board ive been looking at for a while.

Can I get the same performance/overclock out of the p5k-se? lets me tinker right away

Both are good board at $90 range. They have similar OC when I tried and tested them back to last Dec. I pick P5K-SE because it comes with an eSATA port.

I would suggest staying away from the DS3L. My board would take 3-4 tries to load into windows before it finally got it at bone stock settings.

really I was thinking the ds3l was better for a while. What about the miniscule heatsink size of the p5k-se? also why is it so much cheaper than the vanilla p5k? Are they using poor components by comparison?
