Perhaps the new 45nm chips will run cooler and OC better with the X38 chipset.

Ive read reviews of both chipsets and these are the only reasons I can think of that justify buying the X38.
Currently the P35 boards offer excellent performance with current CPUS and memory for a lot less eg. the DFI blood Iron or some of the P35 Gigabyte/ ASUS offerings.
So is it worth paying for X38 with the new 45nm CPUS and GPUs when using DDR2?
I won't bother with p35 or x38 as I'm interested more in the next board that supports SLI or is nvidia based.
