The Asus x38/x48 P5E3 also support pcie 2.0 and the Deluxe/Premium have built in wireless-n. Really can't go wrong with x48 boards just be sure you get what you want and be prepared for a little steeper learning curve as the bios options will stagger you. With that much control you can push hardware alot more if your willing to put forth the effort.


Hmmm. DFI is in my list now.

How far are you able to go stable on FSB with your P5E3? Since they support PCI-E 2.0 and Crossfire X, I might lean over to ASUS.

But before I make up my mind, I'm going to check out some DQ6 reviews I guess. It would deffinitely help me if someone on OCN has a DQ6 to tell me if it's the right choice tho.

The most I tried was 450, which it did no problem but it was 100% stable. As I said the bios options are immense. For now I am keeping it at 333 for 3ghz. I am still learning what settings are ok to play with and my air cooling is stock for the moment (still needs fine tuning). It is really hot here so I really worry about temps.
