don't trust any review on newegg. they are always full of crap. perhaps the epox is EASIER to overclock but the LanParty is better for overclocking

DFI is by far the best overclocking board. They probably said the epox was easier because there is probably less options, so its less "confusing." The DFI board is good for all overclocking levels. If you want to do a simple bump in speed you can do it. If you want to tweak every setting to get maximum performance, you can do it.

The best motherboard for overclocking is the DFI LanParty UT nF4 SLI-DR Venus. If you can't afford that, then the Ultra-D.

I would go with the DFI Ultra-D like everyone else said. Once you get into overclocking, you will appreciate the features it has.

The DFI has some very advanced options, not really for noobs. A very simple straight forward motherboard with a lot of overclocking options would have to be the MSI K8N Neo4-F.

If you aren't comfortable with tweaking a lot of settings, then you can just ignore them and adjust what you want.
