Default Best OCing motherboard

According to this thread:
http://forums.vr-zone.com/showthread.php?t=291962

This:
http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...acture=BIOSTAR

would be the best choice in OCing. Anyone have a better one?
I'm planning on making an E2200 cry with:
-2x GT Xtreme 480
-8x (or more) Delta 220CFM Fans
-Portable Air conditioner
-A whole stack of tubing.

I don't need any fancy features, just a motherboard that can be pushed to high heaven.

Well Death_hawk if you do end up getting that Biostar let me know the results, thinking of getting it to replace my POS Striker Extreme, then add water cooling once I finally get the NCIX anniversary Sweepstakes computer so I can part it out to pay for my water cooling setup

I'll probably pick this unit up as no one has really said anything otherwise.

Don't you need a custom NB cooler for water or are they fairly universal?

Worst comes to worst you could always sell it to me lol... Anything has to be better then this POS Striker extreme. Had to upgrade my BIOS to get AoC to play, and now it won't let me OC, AT ALL, like not even 10 mhz, where before I was pushing my q6700 to 3.5 stableish. "Sigh" Just sick of it and want something new, so please please keep me informed on how it does.

for the watercooled NB, I think EK and another company (I'll look for the name) make NB waterblock for DFI boards.

Also, If you have the 2 480 go for it, but one is enough I think. Specially if you do any kind of chilled cooling. To Much rad power and you'll end up disspating cold since your water would be colder than the outside.
