I'd say Abit. MY friend has a DFI LanParty B (or w/e its called) and he had lots of problems before he got it overclocked. He had it fry his BIOS, nuke his HDD (had to reformat alot of times), and he just left it at 2.3GHz cuz he didn't want to mess with it anymore. I jsut think hes lazy...but maybe if he got the Abit he'd still be trying to beat me lol.
I'd say for overclocking the 2400+ and the 2600+ are great overclockers. I think IQYHA stepping has got the most success overall, but others think the one that starts with an "A" is better (AQYHA?).
No one i know has the 3000+ Mobile, i thought it was only for DTR Notebooks and didn't work in desktop mobo's. But you'd be risking it buying one if you don't have proof it's a good overclocker from at least a few sources.
Only thing i suggest really is HURRY and buy one lol. They are getting harder to find pretty fast (for me anyways)...i'm gonna have to go Intel for my GF if her AXP dies soon. Because i certainly can't afford buying 2 A64's, and i don't want to build another AXP if i can't find replacement parts for it in a year or so.
