P5B Deluxe or MSI P43

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Which board should I get(getting from a friend, not buying) and those are my 2 options. It would have an E6600 and 8800gt both water cooled on it. Also if I get the P5B it would come with water blocks for the north bridge and mosfets.
I am leaning towards teh p5b becaues i think it would oc better. but gimme your opinions

uh oh. well i would use 2x1gb OCZ but i got 4x2gb in my AMD rig of g skill and would maybe take 2x2gb out and put it in the rig w/ the p5b. hmm, i would probably upgrade the mobo soon though cuz i would get a p45 probably.

well, p5b has huge issues with 2gb sticks, 4x1 is fine. half the time it doesnt like booting with a 2gb stick, sometimes it just bsod's, sometimes you have to run it way below stock

it just doesnt have the trfc settings for 2gb sticks

id go for the p43
ive had to many p5b's
