Help me choose a p45 ddr3 board

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Well my other mobo i had picked out was out of stock. So I have 4 new choices of ddr3 p45 boards (because i already ordered the ddr3 and got an amazing deal on it after rebate). So you wonderful gentlemen need to let me know which is the best one, and which one i would have the highest chance of running 525-550mhz fsb on. I will of course read as many reviews as i can, but i am hoping you know from your own experiences which one is just the badassedness uber l33t mobo or something

Here they are:

Gigabyte GA-EP45T-UD3P
Asus P5QC
Gigabyte GA-EP45T-DS3R
Asus P5Q3

OK, now, do not base your opinion on brand. Asus/gigabyte I will say are equal in my mind, even though i have had some bad luck with Asus, both brands are commonly on the very top performance/quality of boards.

Please help me. To me I dont really see many differences, but I know there has to be something. And i really need that 550mhz fsb if possible.

that board is my favorite choice right now, it seems very stable, no complaints from anyone on newegg. Let me hit the reviews now. Come on people, post up some comments with your responses, not just pick a board any board here. lOl

UD3P. Personally, I used several regular UD3Ps to build rig for others. They work great. The UD3PC should have similar OC as UD3P does.
