I want to OC my q6600 to about a 3.6, will the 680i mobo's handle that? Liek this one Newegg.com - EVGA 122-CK-NF68-A1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

I really doubt you will get a Q6600 to 3.6ghz on that board...but who knows you may. The P35 chipset are much better suited for crazy overclocks.

mine is stable at 3.6Ghz with a 680i

the 680i is under estimated for sure. most people just dont know how to use them properly to get a good OC.

my limiting factor is temps right now.

it's not underestimated....some 680i's have been known to overclock very well while I have seem even experts not hit very high overclocks.

I say the 680i gets the reputation it deserves becuase it had a LOT of problems compared to any other board recently.

yeah, on the old BIOS.

the new P30's were designed specificially for quads and OC'ing. it helped me out alot when i flashed the to the P30's.

Sounds good, i think I'm leaning towards the evga nforce 680i for both its Sli and its supposed good overclocking.

You may want to consider holding off on the gpu if you want to send your cpu through the roof.

The gpu will put out alot of heat and degrade the possibilities for your q6600.
