i would just google "p5kc review" and see what comes up. anything by asus is generally pretty stable though, and the p5k is, from what i've heard, a good enough board. i have no personal experience with it, though, so i can't help you anymore than that.

edit: HERE is a link to a review

generally asus boards are pretty easy to overclock, and oc failure recovery is a great feature on asus boards. i have a 1st gen p5b and it works pretty well for oc'ing...however, you should make sure that your cpu can handle high oc, im not really familiar with the e4500 so i can only say read some reviews

dude after u let me to see that link, i not pretty much understand at the end at the conclusion(The issue of the flaky memory controller is mitigated by the low price, and the type of product this is; you'll only buy this if you plan to upgrade to DDR3 next year, by which time it may have a more robust BIOS. More importantly, DDR3 will be cheaper and may deliver good performance at fairly low frequencies (we'd hope for 1,333MHz at least).

The main advantage of buying this board is that you needn't agonise over whether DDR3 is worth buying now - buy the P5KC and you won't have to replace it next year as you might do with a DDR2-only P35 board. It gives you peace of mind and resolves the memory dilemma. Best of all, it doesn't cost a fortune and overclocks well.)

Asus P5KC? its my motherboard!

overclocked my Q6600 fine from 2.4Ghz to 3.2Ghz with a 15€ cooler.. so yeah.. it overclocks well

overclocking grapics card from 650/1625/950 to 870/2255/1100 Mhz (Core/Shader/Memory) so overclocking a GPU wont be hard either

edit:

and dont forget it supports both DDR2 and DDR3

and its not too expensive either.. ..
