Default Re: Motherboard recommendation for GTX 280 SLI?

I have the P7N SLI Platinum from MSI. But, it might not be so stable with SLI if you intend to overclock. I don't know what the problem with mine is, it's very stable with an overclocked CPU at 3Ghz when running one card, but crashes in SLI mode. And it runs SLI fine when not overclocked...

I've also tested with the CPU at 2331 (7x333) and it still crashes, so the problem is the higher FSB... Zapa is running his fine at 3.6ghz with only CPU voltage increases... Mine requires VTT increases at anything above 300FSB, which means I might have a bad board...
