On the evga site it states that it supports the Intel Core 2 Quads. As like with all components some play nice and some do not. You could also go over to the evga forum and read through some posts of any issues. Are you thinking of getting a Q6600?

The A1's are better at overclocking the quad than the T1's. There was something wrong in the board that they fixed, thats why EVGA allowed its customers to step up to the A1's for like 30bucks when they were released a long time ago. Also no matter wat board u get take off the stock heatsinks and apply new thermal paste becuz from factory they put on bout 20-30times more than u need and im being literal here. U can just roll clumps of it with ur fingers like playdoh. If u dont and u start overclocking u can fry the chips on it.
