That ASUS mobo...

So the DFI C2D isn't out until mid/end of October. My reaction? Ah what! What am I supposed to do for the interim? Thats a month!

No one has given up any info on the asus board which is out this month P5N32-SLI PREMIUM/WIFI-AP

Why not? Are there no reviews, examples of overclocking?

I neeeeeed something... Come on I know someone knows something I don't!

Cheers

IMO P5B is where it's at, at the moment.

Mine is a great board, and 490fsb is nothing to be sniffed at

I would have got the P5B but I have nVidia SLi - thats a crossfire board.

I was waiting for the n590 chipset, i almost bought the nForce 4 P5N32SLI SE Delux months ago to go Conroe. Then I figure wait. So I wait. Now all the hype is on the DFI... Which isn't out for another month.

If I keep waiting for the next best mobo i'll never get this built!!!

C2D mobo with SLi is what I need.

So back to my origonal question, is there any details of the new Asus, or another suitable mobo?

I'd rather have 975x tbh. There is about a 200MHz "difference" in performance between 975 & 965.

For example, an E6600 on 975X @ 3.6GHz will be as fast as a E6600 @ 3.8GHz on P965.

Where did that come from? I don't want a P965 either! I didn't think there were any 975X mobo's that support two x16 PCI-e lanes in SLi and c2d...

I don't want nforce 4 either, I was just saying I almost bought one.

I want some info on the mobo i referenced in my 1st post of this thread! I'm keeping tabs on the DFI in the other thread...

Yep guys its true. 975x is faster than the P965 clock for clock, almost 200Mhz worth, and in some cases more (or less). You read about it a lot @ xs. You can really see 975x shine in superpi, vs P965.
