    I recently did a build with a Abit KN8 Ultra, nice board and it easily got a 146 up to 2.5GHz... the HTT can apparently hit above 300 too.

    I've got a KN8-SLI, which ships with passive chipset cooling (actually why I bought it in preference to the Ultra), and so far it's been very good. I have it running with an Opteron 170 at 2.5GHz (only a 500MHz OC, but I don't feel like pushing it) and it's quite happy.

    If you want agp and pci-e then the ASROCK DUAL-SATA2.

    I'm using it and its rock stable, even with my 3500+ running at 4000+ speed with a slight undervolt

    I've read good stuff about the Gigabyte GA-K8N Pro-SLI. Last time I looked (about a week ago) Scan had it for around £65.
