I am getting a Q6600 and I need fast RAID0 capabilities, also currently I am running 5 HDDs... so is this the only board for me out there?
Also, wasn't this board supposed to support DDR3?

I don't want to spend money but I could Ebay my P5N32-E SLI...

According to Asus the P5K board doesn't support DDR3, it supports of up to 8GB DDR2 (800/1066), the P5N32-E SLI supports the same amount of ram but with a choice of faster ram too (800/1066/1333 MHz). The only advantage I see with the P35 is that it supports the 45nm chips that Intel is coming out with in the future. The P35 also supports Crossfire but for the RAID0 option I couldn't find anything on Asus's site.

the P5N32-E SLI has been made 45nm friendly with the latest BIOS... so that is one less advantage...

I need a P35 for high FSB on Quads though... it is either that or a hard mod...

honestly I care much less about the DDR3 than the RAID capabilities...

does it seem like I am a great candidate for the hard mod to you guys?
