Post Socket 940 motherboard for my FX53 CPU


I am in the process of building a dedicated gaming PC around a used FX53 CPU I aquired. In researching the compatable components to use this CPU I am finding very little information on what motherboards are the best overclockers. The ASUS SK8N and SK8V seem like good candidates so far. Does anyone have any information and/or hardware they can guide me towards? Thanks!

The one I have is a socket 940 pin configuration. The AMD website has the information on it and the 6 or so compatable motherboards. It requires registered memory like the original 940 1 series Opterons. What I am interested in is anyones likes/dislikes of the few motherboards that are available for this CPU. Thanks
