Probably either Abit IC7-Max3 or DFI Lanparty Pro875B rev. B. Both have heatsinks on mosfets, which is what you'll need for a prescott. Feature-wise they're almost identical. Lanparty has UV reactive plastic, which may or may not be your thing. Max3 has thermal exhausting on the mosfets which can help your case temps a little, but not much. Both come with seemingly random/useless accesories, so check them both out.

The downside to the P4C800 (and P4P800) is the vcore flux at high loads. A pretty simple vcore mod can fix it though and it's about $20 less, so if you're good with a soldering iron, go for it.

Hop: PC4000 is just PC3200 ram that can reach higher speeds.

But they're still just cherry-picked PC3200 chips. And the timings usually aren't all that good compared to decent PC3200. My OCZ EL PC4000's can only do 2.5-3-4-7, which is about what most value ram can do with a modest overclock.

Most PC4000 RAM will not do low timings. It's not made for that and it's not like PC3200 RAM. It is made for FSB, not timings. So you should choose one or the other based on what you want... FSB or tight timings.

Fold for the cure & team 37726!!
H2O cooling: Chevette heatercore, 172mm 258CFM fan, Apogee GT, and Ehiem 1250. Load temp @ 1.45vcore 41C.
