45mm capable replacement for P5N32-E Sli Plus?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey all,
I'm having problems with my P5N32-E Sli Plus and i'm looking for a "forward-thinking" replacement (can handle a quad core 45mm cpu). I checked out the sticky, but I wasn't sure which of those boards supported the new Wolfdales (I couldn't find any info on the DS3). Essentially I want something that will overclock well and handle the next gen cpu's. Sli doesn't matter, but It has to be able to accomodate a Thermaltake Extreme cooler (no funky extra heatsinks). Sorry for such a big question.

My current specs:
E6400
2 Gig Corsair DDR 800 C4
3 hard drives
8800 GTS 320MB

Thanks!
Iota

Using the same CPU as you, I moved from a P5N32-E SLI to my current Maximus Formula and love it.

The maximus, unfortunately, a bit too pricey for my budget. Anything in the 100-150 range? What about the ASRock Penryn 1600SLI-110dB or GIGABYTE GA-EP35C-DS3R?
