With raid0, decent onboard sound, and 8gb maximum it fits perfectly. I have read the NB heatsink gets rather hot when overclocking, but that is nothing a fan can't fix.

Anyone have other suggestions of proven good mATX overclocking motherboards? Thanks!
That is probably the best Matx board on the market imo.

The G33 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813121315 is probably your best bet. It meets your requirements and overclocks some. Its a great base board for an HTPC if thats your goal. If you really want performance and money is no object check this out http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...name=Intel+X38 open box $219 I am considering getting one for another build.

I believe I'm going to get this board as well. I was going to get the Gigabyte GA-G33M-S2L, but this board beats it hands down. If you happen to get it withing the next couple weeks, please let me know how it works out for you, as I won't be purchasing my board for about 3 weeks.

I'll be ordering it and a small form factor case for my next mod project. I'll keep you informed!

Well I had to order some stuff for a system build for a new client of mine. So I went ahead and ordered the ASUS P5E-VM HDMI along with the CZXT ROGUE. It was a toss up between it and the Lian Li cube case. Even though I love the Lian's brushed aluminum, the room in the Rogue sold me. I read some people's mods to the case, and it seems very mod friendly. I'll be posting a build log asap.

I'll also post overclocking results asap. Hope this will help others who are seeking a mATX solution.

Yeah, I wouldn't want to have to physically alter anything. haha. I feel allot more comfortable overclocking from the bios.

My vote is the Asus G35. I wanted it the whole time I had my matx setup.

I'm looking forward to this build/mod. I have my Q6600 B3 at 3.4ghz right now under water. If it can reach those clocks, I will be very happy indeed.
