Default Suggestions for a new LGA775 Mobo?

I'm going to buy a Q6600 quad core to replace my e6300, but I want a new motherboard to go with it.

The motherboard needs options in the bios to adjust the ram voltage (I need to be able to set it to 2.1v) and hopefully timings as well if possible. I only need 1 PCI-E 16x slot because I'm running a 8800 GTX OC. I have OCZ platinum memory is why I need to be able to set it to 2.1

do you have a budget or price range you'd want to stick too?

Also, would you prefer a full size ATX - or micro ATX board?

Does your PSU have a 20+4 pin power connector or would it have to be either a 20 pin or 24 pin?

answers to those would help narrow it down

budget and price range not really anything will work. Power supply has 20 + 4 connector and it needs to be a standard atx board. No micro =P

P35 or X38 chipset

Asus or Gigabyte are probably the best to look at

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128059 This mobo is great for the price. It's one of the best P35 based OC'ing boards.
