Default Motherboard vs Motherboard - OC thread

For overclockers..like myself.. who want to push their hardware to the limit what motherboards are there that will support 4GHz on a Q6700 with Phase Cooling? - Budget = $700.00 maximum..not those $7,000+ ones O.0

I have heard this mobo is best:
Quote:
DFI LANPARTY DK P35-T2RS LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX

I also just got a recommendation on this one:
Quote:
Also if you haven't already bought your motherboard, consider waiting for either the x48 or p45 chipsets.

X48 should be available in the coming weeks and P45 should be launching beginning Q2

A q6700 has a 10x multi. All you'd need is 400FSB which basically ANY mobo can do. Heck i run my q6600 at 9x400 on air.

I wouldn't say the DK series is the best for DFI. The LT or UT's are the top ones.

I can push 4ghz on my q6600 with my Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme using my 680i board. But i have to put entirely too much voltage into the chip. Your best bet is going to be an x38 board or 780i board if you want to run SLI.

ASUS Maximus Formula Intel X38 Core 2 Quad Socket 775 1600MHz PC2-9280 (DDR2-1160) ATX Motherboard R at ZipZoomfly

Both awesome boards

X38 is a better chipset than the P35....

And If I had to guess I would say no, it isn't.

A bunch of people on xtremesystems have both those ASUS boards an they are awesome performers.

X38 boards will do 500 easy but only a handful of p35 boards can actually do it and beyond.
