P5Q-E or Maximus ll Formula?

Is the maximus worth the extramoney? I don't really need this soundcard.

P5Q-E Is a good overclocker to make Q9550 4.0GHz @ water stable?

You can do 4.0 on a Q9550 on air. The P5Q-E ought to be able to pull it off. Or you could get the GIGABYTE board like all the rest of us. Either way if you've got water, you should be going for 4.5 or more...

P5Q-E does 475FSB with my Q6600 with 2 mins tweak. I am running my Q6600 @ 3.8Ghz 475*8 @1.45 volts stable 8 hours. It all matter to the CPU too.

That's too bad. The GA-EP45-UD3P is where you want to be if you want to seriously overclock your Q9550.
