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...

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 www.jaha.be and www.alternate.be

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.

Nice.

I'll keep an eye out for the results.


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