Lord Anthrax, just curious, why do you think the 965 chipset is the best chipset for C2D?
It's better for chips with lower multies like the E6300, E6400 and somtimes E6600.
An E6300 needs a much much higher FSB to reach the same speed as an E6700, while the E6700 needs a much lower FSB.
965 Chipsets provide much higher FSB's and are better suited for chips with low multis.
x975 chipsets provide much stabler FSB's, good for chips with higher multies, because most dont do 450+ (P5W DH) and 380 390 is plenty of FSB for a E6700 and X6800. Maybe for E6600, Depends on where you want it
