LOL, they're far from the best. They're not bad, but they're definitely not the best.

The 680i will OC alright, but yes, the P35 will OC much better. The only reason to get a 680i chipset is if you're planning on SLI.

Intel has a new chipset called the X38 I think. It runs so hot that they are putting a heatspreader on it. Not out yet though.

Asus P5K-E is what you want. 8 channel audio, Gigabit ethernet, will overclock amazing. You don't really want DDR3 yet, it's not really developed enough and is way too expensive.

i dunno, i bought the board under the pretense that it was good for OCing (which i heard/read from several sources). I don't think it's bad for overclockability but i also dont know if it's the best

Alright here is the deal.

Any 680i chipset is a killer OCer... for dual cores. The quad cores are NOT supported with ONLY the n63 model. The A1 OCes it fine, but not the n63.
