    Recommend me an Intel MBHi I

    have around £80 to spend on a socket 775 MB. Not to bothered about crossfire or sli. What model is going to let me clock a wolfdale the highest? Also intending to use an AC Freezer 7 pro on it so it'll need space round the cpu slot

    I think Asus P5Q Pro or the Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS3 would do, I still haven't figured out which of the 2 is in fact better ^_^ (also interested myself for my next build, got both of those in mind)

    Asus P5Q or Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS3 are under £80.

    p5q is ok for overclocking, reviews suggest it can handle around 450Mhz , the older p5k however is famous for running stable at over 530Mhz. Asus P5K boards are still the best overclocking boards money can buy.

    I'd be tempted by this

    Or a P5K-E wifi
