  1. Title says it all ...

    rest of specs :

    c2d 8400
    2x HD48XX ( to be decided )
    2x2gb mushkin xp2-8500 ( 1066mhz)

    Need to have good and stable OC, DDR2, and ofc 2x PCIE 16x slots ...
    what features i need ? nothing fancy, i will be using 3 sata drives, 6 USB ports at max... the only thing im concerned about is the space for a good CPU cooler, since i will be using a Cosmos S case, the max height of the cpu cooler is about 145mm so it will probably need more space around the cpu socket ... any recommendattions here ?

    x38 or x48 ? and wich one ? i must admit im pretty tight on budget here for the mobo, but i guess ill find the cash if needed. So far i was thinking about Asus Maximus Formula, but its a bit pricy ...
