[H] notices something new in the way Gigabyte put together their new Core 2 Duo mobo. They have always been a company that makes stable boards, but haven't had a history of good overclockability. That changes with the GA-965P-DQ6, they got a Core 2 Duo E6300 1.87GHz to run at 3.3GHz, with a 472MHz FSB, but they did need to break out a few waterblocks to do so.
"The GA-965P-DQ6 is among the first of many motherboards touting full support for Intel's new Core 2
Duo line of processors. While GIGABYTE traditionally hasn't delivered stellar enthusiast boards, the
DQ6 seems to be an overclocking star."
