Default Mobo for Duo e6700

What in everyone's opinion would be the best SLI mobo for the e6700?
so far all i found is the ASUS P5N32-SLI SE nForce4 SLI X16

hoping to one day be less of a modding newb.

ehh.. if you want sli i think you should wait for other than asus.. i can't say if its true, but i think asus had problems with fsb not being able to be raised after a certain point..

wait for nforce 5 boards if you want sli

Current Build:
Intel 8700k | 16GB G.skill Trident Z | Z370 Gigabyte Auros Gaming Extreme |
Asus GTX1080 Strix | Corsair H100i V2 | Corsair 750D | Corsair RM850X

It's not a Pentium. Pentium is done. Pentium is no more.

It's a Core 2 Duo E6700.

ANYWAY. I have this motherboard, it works great. Lots of good features, standard hardware (so it works fantastic with Linux ) but if you plan on doing overclocking, don't get it, cause I can't get my E6600 over 3Ghz with it, and on my Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 I got it to 3.6Ghz. I had to switch motherboards though as the DS3 was pretty much made just for Windows.
