Well depends on what type of processor you want. But i suggest the Abit 3rd Eye AV8 K8T800 Pro for socket 939. Thats as good as it gets for 939.

the MSI Neo2-Platinum is also a very good board. This one and the one Codeine listed are always the two I suggest as the top boards to get for socket 939. Both have more than enough options in the BIOS for adequate overclocking.

For overclocking Socket A you'd want an XP-Mobile and the ABit NF7-S v2 board. 'Bout the best combo right now for overclocking

Oh, shoulda said that in the first place =/

Well with that.....I don't know

Sorry don't know anything about Intel really

ABit still makes socket 478 too I believe also DFILanParty boards are supposed to be some of the best for OC'ing also so you might want to check out what each of them offers.

I've found this ...

http://www.asus.com/products/mb/sock...e/overview.htm

Does this have good overclocking capabilities or not ?

You should download the manual of any potential motherboard candidates and go through the BIOS options menu section of the manual to find out if you have the correct options for OC'ing.

CPU FSB
Multiplier
AGP/PCI Bus Lock
Vcore

Those are the basics for CPU OC'ing

You also might need

DRam Timings
Dimm Voltage

if you start going above your RAM stock specifications.
