So i've decided to replace my ASUS P5N-D because the damn thing just doesn't have as many options to OC as I want, aside from horrible vdroop I had to pencil mod to somewhat take care of. At any rate, i've been looking up but just can't decide which motherboard to get for my Q9550 :)

Something that'll keep stable in high OC would be nice. Been looking at http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813141005 this here. tell me what ya think :love:

780i should be ok, alot of people would say to go Intel but with my experience with Nvidia the 780i should work wonders.:)

I can tell you to NOT get the MSI 750i SLi zilent - mine craps out at about 440 FSB, and still trying to stabilize a Q9650 at 3933Mhz.

thanks for the info.. :love: :)

I suppose i'll go with the 780i..
Also read that the Intel chipsets don't support SLi? /shrug

Hell, in a desperate attempt to get a stable 3.8ghz on this damn board I set HT and NB @ auto voltage.. with FSB @ 1800 x_x..
to say the least, my BIOS was freezing up and at times my screen would get glitchy, but i managed to enable to default settings and fix it up before it froze again. Did a few tests and yea, my CPU is fine lol. Had me worried a sec that I messed it up
