100th post! I found a pretty good website I just bought a cpu fan off of. It's got a lot of good deals on motherboards. A lot of good deals on the new hybrid SLI.

Computer Motherboards Abit Motherboards MSI PC Mainboards RAID Controllers - Discount/Cheap Prices Hot Deals Free Drivers-Best Computer Online Store Houston Buy Discount Prices Texas-Directron.com

Just click what chipset you want. Pretty cheap.

it isn't. The more power phase the more cooler and stable it will run. 3.2 is nothing anyways. Any board can do that w/ exceptions. If thats as high as you want to go then by all means get whatever you'd like. But if you want to oc to the max for benching and whatnot then I'd suggest getting something that can oc quads better. Plus its' not that much more and it will have better cooling

One thing's for certain, we can all agree that more phases do not necessarily make for a more stable power subsystem.

I would go for the Biostar. zmatt has that board and has been very happy with it.
