    I am resolved to get a p35 based mobo but have been steared away from the asus vanilla p5k board.. seems the dx and premeium boards are all 200.00 ish or more

    Does someone have/know of a great p35 based over clockers board they would recommend for under 170.00? I am getting a e6850 and want to push the 4000 barrier:):twitch:

    So any thought are GREATLY appreciated...

    p35 seems to rule the roost in oc'd the 775 conroes per multiple reviews.. I was all set to get a evga sli680 board, really all setBUT several separtae reviewers "SHIATE" all over the sli vs the p35 so I have had asus and thought of the p5k, but again poeple steared me away from the palin wrapper one, so I am back to looking at good boards good cheap! these forums RULE! fyi... so whats up with Gigabyte having an approved ram list? someone sue them?

    I have to agree to a gigabyte p35. I believe [url="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813127030']this[/url] abit also overclocks well.

    P5K-E - its exactly the same as the premium board when it comes to overclocking, unlike the cut back vanilla.

    actually the gigabyte s and the asus dx board test goofy, I think that you will see in each side by side review the dx boards do slightly better than the gigs and the gigs runs some tests better, but not latency oddly enough!
    could be a tested ram issue??

    I did not know the p5k e was the same nuts and bolts.. ok, I already decided on teh 150.00 gig GA-P35C will make one final looksi atthe asus p5ke board..

    BONUS I lucked into getting three items all at great pricing all with free shipping.. not that the shipping matters, BUT how cool that the items that fit the "ticket" fell into such a neat net?

    final tally
    270 fopr the E6850 free shipping
    150 for hte Gig Ga p35c-whatever fre shipping
    130 CB8500 ram free shipping -30 mir :(

    ok, I just verified the p5k-e is ggod oc, now that I sold myself on teh Gigabyte nmotherboard, I am finding it hard to justify the few extra dollars to stay with asus. so much for product loyalty lol! I will sleep on it and decide between the Gig and the asus, U" all are a great group... only one other board I was ever involved has such high quality members! BRAVO!~

    Yea, I'm about to order a P5K-E Wifi and it has the same layout as the Deluxe and Premium versions, as well as all the perks without paying top-dollar. When I was doing research, I couldn't find anything bad to say about the Gigabyte boards either. Also, don't worry about product loyalty- Asus and Gigabyte joined forces.

    MSI Neo2-FR. Not sure on the price in the US, but it's about £70 in the UK, which should be about $140ish.
