Yes, I'm planning to overclock the 955BE

I'm having a difficult time choosing a board that's not expensive with USB3.0 and good to overclock.
I'll get getting my mobo from here

This one is about $20 more than the other Gigabyte board, but has 8+2 phase power. Better in my opinion. Just an idea.

That board doesnt have vrm cooling but you could always get some heatsinks for it and stick them on to cool them if you want to stay in that price range.
