Gigabyte boards never let me down; I swear by them. http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...e&promoid=1088

The latest Asus boards don't clock high FSBs. Their RMA sucks, and I won't talk about their Support site....

One of the cheapest board out there is the GA-P35-DS3L; mine did 550 FSB with an E6400; I never had to RMA one of their boards, and I had many of them; Gigabyte has a site that works...

Depends which P5Q you're looking at. The P5Q Deluxe has pulled off some decent overclocks I believe. Check it out here: "ASUS P5Q Deluxe discussion". - XtremeSystems Forums

LOL where do you get your facts? Or are they just opinion? The latest Asus boards clock perfectly. I have been able to achieve the same OC results with my P5Q-E as I've achieved with my older P5K Premium WiFi.

Asus RMA sucks? Again, you're grossly wrong. I've RMAed two boards so far and Asus service and speed have been no worse than other companies.

How good their support site is irrelevant. Sites like HWC and RFD should be your support sites.
