I have the Asus P5E-VM HDMI and love it - great board, good overclocker. The Q-shield is useful as well.

I have GA-G31M-S2L, it's good card. I get max 2,92Ghz on stock voltage (E4600). But i want change it for GA-G33M-DS2R, because my mobo has weak radiators and it's little hot.

I just recieved the Asus P5E-VM HDMI, I have yet to test everything out, but the board is solid. Great build quality, and for the mATX, it seems to be the best.

I can post my results once my modding starts, when the case arrives tomorrow!

So far this board overclocks very well. I am running a E6750 @ 3.6ghz with 1.472v. The vdroop on the board is actually very large, I have the voltage at 1.61v. As you can see that is a large vdroop, but nothing to worry about when you counter it.

It is running 8x450 as we speak, orthos was running earlier for an hour and half no errors. I had to do some windows updates, but will be running orthos for atleast 8-10hrs before I will say system is 100% stable.

I have tried to go higher but I believe my ram is hindering that idea. I am running 4gb 2x2gb G.Skill 5-5-5-15 ddr 2 800@901mhz. I can not even push the ram to 951mhz, so I will wait to get my other G.Skill ram to go higher. If I can't due to ram, it will be time to get some higher overclocking ram!

Everything has worked without hiccups so far. I have updated the bios to the latest revision, even though no major changes were made I felt better with it.

I have yet to run 3DMark, but I put my Q6600 B3 on the back burner to see how far I can get this E6750 too. My old E6750 did 4.0ghz on air, wish I wouldn't have sold that chip when I did. I have had to mess with the bios options allot to figure them out, but if your familiar with any aftermarket bios you should be fine. I will post more results asap!
