I can't reccomend any specific mobo, but i can tell you that any mobo with an N-Force chipset is the best for overclocking. trust me, VIA sucks

In the reviews for the A7N8X-E Deluxe, some people said that the board wasn't the best for overclocking, and in the 3dgameman.com review, it also said that it wasn't that great, because you can't change the chipset voltage. Is this true? I'm deciding between the NF7-S and the A7N8X-E Deluxe right now.

i like Abit boards best, i have an intel chipset with P4 but the best for socket A is nforce chipsets. Abit boards are very easy to overclock with
