Good OC board for SB.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
What would be a good OC board for a 2600k. Is it true that its only down to the cpu in SB because you only change the multi or does the board have some inpact on this to?

Features I'm looking for:
SLI support.
A few SATA 6Gb/s
USB3

That's about it.

well ive been looking at the asus p8p67 boards for my rig. I'm interested in there p8p67 deluxe board. You can find them here: http://usa.asus.com/Search/?SearchKey=p8p67
however gigabyte has recently made there new z68 motherboards
http://www.gigabyte.com/microsite/27...68-models.html
I just opened a thread asking for opinions/facts on which one is better.
Both of these motherboard series support usb3, sata 3, and sli support
However it is also worth noting that these motherboards can't sli at pcie 16x
When two are being used up it converts to pcie8x this isn't to much of a problem though. It doen't halve performance in fact you won't even notice it unless your using super high resolutions against multiple monitors. Basically what that represents is the bandwidth which is hardly being used up with 8x anyway. Best of luck!
