Thats 520MHz fsb (2080mhz quad-pumped)! Insane...Gigabyte mobo! The memory is running 1000MHz latencies like 10-10-X-X and ratio of quadpump fsb to memory at 1:2.

Looks like bearlake is an overclocking chipset wunderbah!

The P35 is going to form the backbone of my new build once the price cuts come through. The question is E6850 or quad core.

I gotta upgrae my 3d graphics setup.....thinking of getting a 8800 gtx....my SLi setup is getting long on the tooth - 2 years almost!

I wonder if that E6850 OC is on air? I'm very curious to see how high those go, as that will be in my next build. If I can get mine above 3.5Ghz I would be happy.

P5B Deluxe can easily pass 500 FSB.

P5W DH can as well, but it needs a little vmodding.

I've seen a few Asus PK5's getting into the 600's. P35 is a very good overclocker and if your going to be getting a p965 board I see no reason not to pass and get something a tad more future proof for relatively the same price in the P35. Although DDR3 isn't really useful right now it will be soon enough. P35 also shows much better overclocks on quad-core CPU's then any other chipset right now. Also it's designed for the 45nm chips once they come out too. I own a Asus P5B Deluxe and a P5W DH and I love both, but if I was building now and it had to be right now it would be a P35, if I didn't want SLI of course.

Personally I'm going to wait a few more months for the quad-core price drops, introductions of a few more CPU's, and the release of X38. Here's to hoping X38 will have SLI support! If not then then I'm going to have to go with an Nvidia chipset.

Oh same here. X38 with SLI support would be fantastic!

I'll eat crow later if I'm wrong, but I'll lay odds that will never happen. :)

I'm guessing they should be hitting most stores soon? Whats the price on these boards? I've googled, and found one odd onlinestore that references them to be $198 in the US. Doesn't look like any of the "mainstream" site sell it yet..


I'm about to actually buy a mobo.. P35 looks interesting, but the $100 difference between the 965 DS3 and the P35 DS3R is a bit excessive...

SLi + Intel chipset = on its way.

Likewise. I love my P5B-Deluxe... great mobo! I plan on getting the Q6600 in July when the price hits $299 and will OC the hell out of it. Should last me awhile, plus I never ever plan on getting SLi (which is why I got this mobo to begin with). If need be I will just get 1 of the best cards out as that has always been more than enough for me :)

I am currently awaiting the arrival of the Gigabyte P35C-DS3R in Canada. It will quite the upgrade from this VIA mobo I am running allowing an upgrade path to Yorkfield, & DDR3 while still utilizing my Allendale and DDR2 for now.

I am in exactly the same situation....

I sooooo hope to eat that crow dinner. Man that would be sweet!!!
However, I read the article and it does not specifically mention SLI...although it is implied.
