Well I run the DS3 version and it's a really good board, and I guess the DQ6 would be all the better, although I hear the extra price might not be worth it over the DS3. I've only heard good things about the P5B deluxe, but it's not the best overclocker (from what I read).

The P5B Deluxe is known well for it's overclocking capability, and I think it's cheaper. You can also check out the Gigabyte 965P-DS3, which is also known for it's overclocking capability.

yeah iv e heard the asus dosnt clock to well but i think they have a new bios revision for it now making it a little o/c friendly.Still undecided. I know the dq6 has a heatsink on the back of it. That will restrict what sort of aftermarket cooling i can have on it to wont it? Not to sure if it is removable as i think the heatsink on top screw into part of it.

The P5B deluxe is a good overclocker, you'll hit dangerous temps on your processor before you hit an FSB max.

I'm using the P5B deluxe and I love it.
