Can't give you a comparison, only that my MSI (see sig) is pretty good. With some tweaking, it can get up to 300 HHT stable. Currently running 270, no probs.

I like my Abit alot...only had it at 260 tho...but running at stock as mem bandwidth went down with high HTT..also had to drop multis as this proc needs some better cooling. Too busy working on the next build to spend the time to find a max for this board yet.

Depends a lot on what heatsink you wish to use, if you want a large one like the xp-120 or zalman cnsp7700 then you need to take into account compatability so is that a problem for you?

A K8VT800 Pro is not a bad board. But if money is no problem, i agree DiabloAbogado, a K8N board is unsurpassable.

Don't get me wrong, The K8N Neo has some issues and to get the most out of it takes a lot more tweaking than other boards, but I've had the board to 310 HHT stable but CPU maxes out at 2425 MHz. Right now I have it running 2423 MHz (9.5x255), 255 HHT, memory is 1:1 @ 2.5-3-2-10. I think this is the best setup so far. If I get a better CPU, I could probably run it faster. I'm happy for now. DFI has better voltage options tho.

id say that my abit kv8pro is dogn alright. i have my 2800+ 64 1.8 @ 2.250 (250*9) all day long. abits really good and they have stable motherboards. id agree with cadaveca. i dont plan to push it any further really because im happy with my performance. but if you supe it up with a 3200+ or a 3400+ it will really fly.

basically theres little differance between the good boards from each manufacturer
the msi k8n neo has a slight performance advantage from most of the reviews I've seen, plus it will fit the xp-120 or CNSP7700 heatsinks
I don't think any abit boards are fully compatable with the xp-120
The EP-8KDA3J is a good board, it's inexpensive and fill fit larger heatsinks

does anyone else have the XP120 on an 8KDA3J cause my XP90 doesn't leave much room (the power connector from the psu touches and it overlaps my dimm slots....i can only imagine how the 120 would fit...another mobo would be the chaintech vnf3250...but voltage takes you places and the dfi's got it...

I was going off the thermalrights website list of compatable boards, it's quite possible they are mistaken.
