Good of them to be big enough to print it, I'm a little surprised!

What a joke, for 400$ that board should be the fastest out there, period. It shouldve been a flawless board. 400$ is the most expensive board ive ever seen, even server boards are usualy a lot cheaper than that...

Yea, it would be more worth it if it was an AMD board. :p

$400? I assume your not talking US currency, because $299 is the highest price (US) that I have seen for that board...

** EDIT ** Crap, when I am wrong, I am wrong. I appologise....I just looked it up...The Non Striker Asus 680I is $299....The Striker Extreme is indeed retailing for $399, and unfortunatly, I have to agree with Arctic, that is kinda pricey...

So whats the best overclocking mobo for C2D under 150 USD ?

I'd get a 965 board and ask around about the following:

P5B 128usd:

GIGABYTE GA-965P-DS3 134usd
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813128012

P5B-E 150usd:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813131070

If I was buying it for myself I'd spring for the P5B-E right @ 150usd or the possibly the Gigabyte DS3 for 134usd. The ram I would probably buy:

Good Anand article about mid range G.Skill ram:

Some people swear by the Gigabyte board and it supposed to have issues with certain types of memory. Wish I could remember the specifics. Some of these boards only use up to 2.2ov on the ram or less. Make sure you don't buy ram that needs high voltage. I believe they upped the P5B-E's voltage to 2.4v and I will need to confirm that.
