i got that chip with a DS3 board, not that impressed. ill take my e6600 stock over that chip clocked at 3ghz+. so im glad i got it for free cuz i wouldnt buy it. its kinda like the store brand version of your favorite cereal.

Either the Gigabyte P965-DS3 or the ASUS P5B Deluxe is the favorite for C2D overclocking.

for that, anything with a 965p chipset will do you well.
