    Default What motherboard for overclocking ?

    Hi guys i need a new motherboard but its got to be easy to overclock as i havent done much of that, i have been looking at the asus p5q pro and the DFI LANPARTY DK P450T2RS PLUS but would consider others i have an e8400 chip and Kingston HyperX 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 PC2-8500C6 1066MHz Dual Channel Kit.

    Dont get a DFI if you want easy

    I would suggest a Gigabyte P35 variant for easy overclocking

    Well since you use 5 drives but dont know if you use raid.... I am not sure really. Did you build that system yourself? Just wonder if it uses raid maybe and you just dont know it?

    This is a great P35 board for 99 >>>
    Gigabyte GA-EP35-DS4 Intel P35 (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR2 Motherboard

    P45 (Advanced BIOS, just incase you change your mind)
    Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS3R P45 Socket 775 8 Channel Audio ATX Motherboard - Ebuyer

    Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS3R Intel P45 (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR2 Motherboard

    Or newest Model
    Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R Intel P45 (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR2 Motherboard

    Thanks for giving me an idea i think this board Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R Intel P45 (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR2 Motherboard would be of more interest has it has 8 sata ports so then i can use sata writer and reader as well as my 6 hard drives can you tell me the 2 purple sata connections can you connect anythink to them ?
    Yes my system is built buy me yes it has raid but i dont use it as i dont have exsperience in using it so i leave it alone , but mybe i should as this might speed up transfers between hard drives maybe not sure really. The board i use now is the asus p5ne-sli had two of these now but crap really.

    The purple connections are a Gigabyte/J.Micron controller you can use them for any SATA Device or another RAID array
