It's around 30$ more expensive than that gigabyte Z68MX-UD2H mobo but much better..

CHEERS..
Pretty sure you are missing the "PRO" in the name of the mother board.
And since he already had a gigabyte, I recommend him the gigabyte equivalent, the UD4. Then again, I am guessing he choose matx either for space, or because of $.

I didn't say that you couldn't do it on that board, but there are always horror stories of peoples computers frying trying to do stupid stuff like that. Also, just because it "works" doesn't mean it is doing right, I think I have heard from some where that putting stress on VRMs like that can cause instability.

I appreciate the input guys ! I belive I would be better suited with a better power phase then. I'll just skip the Micro-ATX and consider something a little more high-end.

And thank you for the list, Omega329. Rep+

A lot of this VRM and power phase stuff is advertising.

I can get 5.3 on one of the cheapest 1155 boards. It's mostly what batch CPU you get.

I considered buying it because of the two x8 PCI-e slots since I'm going to Crossfire 6870's. And the low price point, of course. I'm on a budget, so theoretically any good motherboard brand will be considered. I'd prefer Asus, Asrock, Gigabyte though.


Note that this build is not for myself.

Right, as software is a good way to measure power, ain't it?

Even some old 4-phase 775 boards could take Q9xxx Quads past 4GHz. Would draw 130 - 140w with that 'out of this world' ridiculous IBT.

I don't say no thanks to having more, as long as the price is right.

Ahh, I know on the normal P8P67 (non pro) that it does not support SLI, they must have changed that with Z68.

@ op
You could choose the P67 chipset instead of the Z68 (if you don't need ssd caching) and probably have the room to get a better board.
I am unsure of your countries prices, but the difference between your motherboard and say the P67 UD4 shouldn't be more than 10$. The Asrock extreme 4 has all the features of the Gigabyte UD4 and the Asus P67 Pro, but is usually 10-20$ cheaper, so that could be an alternative to look into.
