    Well... it looks like the heat wave we had up in New England killed my HTPC's motherboard (Asus P4T) and I need to pick out another one. I'd love to hear some suggestions from other HTPCers.

    I'm looking for a well-performing ATX P4 mobo. I don't need onboard video or audio as I'm using an ATI video card and an M-Audio audio card.

    Any suggestions/recommendations?

    I have the Intel D875PBZ and really like it. Well laid out, rock solid, easy to setup.

    This is my first Intel mobo, always bought Asus in the past. However, in the past I have always dabbled in overclocking. I have lost interest, so to speak, with OC'ing Intel chips. Really not worth the effort, don't get that much extra, and the performance really isn't that noticeable in real world apps.

    I am running a 2.4 PIV w/800 fsb and 1 gb dual channel RAM, and have zero complaints on performance, configuration, conflicts, and compatibility.
