  1. Hey

    Ok, months of changing bios settings, and blue screens, I've still never managed to get the P5Q3 Deluxe stable with
    2gb of OCZ DDR3 PC3-12800 Platinum Enhanced Bandwidth Edition.
    Tried every option suggested, aswell as flashing to most of the bios's available.

    So, what board does everyone recomend for a replacement to this. Was looking at the X58's + Core I7, but don't have enough atm to afford them. I was thinking of a P5E3 Premium, heard they are a very stable board + overclocks well. What does everyone think?

    The P5E3? If you have got that kind of money... go for it. It is a nice motherboard

    I have a P5E3 Deluxe and it's very stable with my Patriot kit, as well as the Kingston kit I had in it before. I should think the P5E3 Premium will be similarly stable, if not more.

    Try it, I doubt you'll have problems. Also, do take the time to read the P5E3 Premium RAM Tuning guides here.
