So I am now down to these two boards. I like both and I was wondering which one OCs better, if either do. I do like the SLI, but it isn't required. I am planning on doing RAID 0, so would the ICH7R be any worse then the ICH8R for the RAID??? Also, is the 975X Chipset better than the 965P chipset on the P5B Deluxe???<br />
<br />
I want to order this stuff tonight, so I can finally get this C2D build going. If you have any suggestions please respond quickly.

P5B Deluxe FTW. Overclocks better, can SLI/CrossFire. ICH8R <img src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Thumb" class="inlineimg" />

<br />
P5W is "true" 16X and 16X SLI.<br />

</div>No, 8x and 8x. Even if its 16x 16x, you still get 8x 8x because no cards can use full 16x 16x yet<br />
<br />
The BT will fit

Oh yeah, thats this about the NB getting a little warm?? Should i buy a little 40mm fan to mount on it??<br />
<br />
Actually what is the best cooling for these C2D's?? I was looking at the TT Big Typhoon or the Scythe SCNJ-1100P. Is there any other good options??
