    Re: getting new mobo

    well i had the Asus P5K-E and it overclocked my Q6600 to 3.9GHz on air, unstable in any sort of application, but it got it there. and it was totally stable at 3.6GHz on air in everything i threw at it.
    so i can recommend that motherboard
    also, my Abit IP35 that i'm using now can take mt Q6600 to 3.6GHz easily.

    the reason i went back to the P35 over the P45 was because my brother gave me £400 and my old P35 and 8800GT back for my P5K-E and 2* 4850s.
    fair deal i reckon
    bought myself a Samsung Netbook
