Default P6T Vanilla vs Deluxe v2 vs Evga x58

How much better would the Deluxe/Evga X58 oc over the vanilla? I have the regular p6t vanilla but I can return it and get the deluxe or evga for $40 more..

I have a i7 D0 by the way. I want to get atleast 4.2ghz on a TRUE

The only differnce I can see between the vanilla and deluxe is that it has 8+2 phase power instead of the deluxes 16+2

How much of a differnce would this make?

None, getting 4.2 on a D0 is fairly easy and i do it with my Gigabyte EX58-ud3r. The problem is not getting there because your Vanilla can get 200 BCLK anytime. My TRUE doesn't stand these temps at 4.2 though and i wouldn't go higher than 4.0 on air with mine.

So basically your MB is not a problem.
Core i7 920(D0) @4.0 1.212v | Gigabyte EX58-UD3R | OCZ Gold 3x2GB CL8 | Silverstone FT01-BW | TRUE 1366-RT | eVga GTX275 FTW (713/1512/1260) | Corsair TX850w | Hitachi 500GB | Seagate 7200.11 750GB | Dual Screen (Dell 2208wfp & Viewsonic VP930b)

I agree with HuttFuzz. I run the EVGA X58 board and I can't stand the temps of my TRUE either at anything over 4 GHz. If you really want to go beyond, get watercooling. All those boards overclock really well. The chip was the main determinant in this case for overclocking.

HuttFuzz n Jangles....are your TRUE's arranged in push or push / pull, I reduced my temps siginificantly adding an additonal 120mm 1600 RPM Scythe to the TRUE....push / pull baby!!
