Hey guys! What would be the good Mobo for a E8400 with/under $150 budget? Good overclock potential with the E8400, PCI Express 2.0 x16, no SLI option (not planning on it)...



Thanks for looking...

I can vouch for the P5Q Pro as well, See sig. Board has basically no vdrop/vdroop, its very good with voltage during OCing. Well maybe not, my sig is gone.

I wish that Gigabyte board was around when I bought my P5Q Pro. I would rather have it simply for the heatsink assembly. I had to replace all the stuff on my board with thermalright pieces, the mosfets on this thing get blistering hot under an OC.

I have a Abit AB9 Pro that runs that CPU flawlessly, it did need a bios update to the microcode for it though.
As you look for your board go to the manufacturers site to see what CPU's are supported with the initial bios.
I keep a Celeron D handy for bios flashes, but most people do not have that luxury.
DFI's BloodIron is a great board, but you might need to flash the bios on it.
I will say the http://preview.tinyurl.com/62bktv does look like a good option.
