Giga UD4P maybe mate, P6T Dlx is nice too. I would go over 250 euro's If I was you. There's no gain for daily usage...

Gigabyte 1366 GA-EX58-UD4P DDR3

And what do you mean by there's no gain for daily usage... :-p

Asus P6T deluxe v2
also looks nice :D

to spend 300 bucks compared to a 200-250 one, all of them can run 200Bclock , which is more than enough for nice 4GHz clocks and beyond

Look here for the UD4P ; 219 euro's at and

nigel 26th June 2009 19:59

And the UD4P is a good deal then?
It looks good ^^

In the meantime, almost six months have passed and we had the launch of the LGA 1156 mobo's... that's what I'm going for. Since the core i7 860 is a very nice processor with loads of overhead to OC, that's the one I ordered, in combination with an ASUS Maximus III Gene micro-ATX mobo...

Okay, so it has DDR3-dual channel instead of triple, but the mobo is a wet dream for tweakers... ;-)

Haven't decided on the memory. Been using Kingston HyperX for quite a while (DDR2 PC8500@1066MHz) and I'll prolly stick to that brand and their HyperX mem.

I'm calling Asus tomorrow for some 1156 mobo's to test

I'll keep an eye out for the results.

Saw a test for the Maximus III Gene at Guru of 3D, by the way...
