    I have a little question, what is the best overclocking motherboard that commonly use for intel cpu. I have a quad core Q6600, and planning to get pcie 2.0 express video card. so what is the best oc intel mobo for quad core and compatible with pcie 2.0? i am looking at P5E asus mobo, are there any better one?


    Thanks

    PCI-E 2.0 cards work in regular PCI-E slots as well, without any performance penalties. So you can use any motherboard out there that supports your CPU and has a PCI-E slot. The ASUS P5E is a great board however, for overclocking, I'd recommend the DFI BloodIron P35-T2RL and the Abit IP35 Pro.
