Hi, Im having trouble finding the best motherboard that supports 775 intel core 2 quad prossessor that also awesome for overclocking. i also prefer ddr3 memory.

i do not need inter-graded graphics card. but i do got 2x geforce 8800gts ready for sli. there pci express 16x so i need 2x pci express 16x slots for them

Socket 775 and SLI really limits you...you'd need to stick to a motherboard with an nVidia chipset...750i & 780i for DDR2 or 790i for DDR3...none of them were great...might be a good time to upgrade to a newer platform :) i7 + SLI is sweet :santa:

None of them to terribly good for OCing, especially with a quad :(

+1 on that advice. If you're looking for Intel + SLI, you should really be looking at either socket 1156 or 1366.... especially if you want an overclocked quad. I don't suggest considering any socket 775 boards for that type of application.

I did have some results with air cooling in there ;) 4.2GHz stable sounds pretty good to me :D
