Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD4-B3.. Overkill for me? - Page 2

post #11 of 24

Yea I'm not looking to break any records. Just looking to get a mid 4's OC. From what I heard the 2500k will easily OC to 4.5 even on cheaper boards so I would think I'd be safe with one of these?

a UD4 will serve you well... i personally feel that the UD3->UD4 is worth the price jump as you go from mid-level to high-level overclock ability with the change in VRMs and different features

I can get like a $40 discount when buying the UD4 and 2500k together so that makes it worthwhile. Putting that saved money into next day air for the weekend build

Thanks guys.

Agreed. As a UD4/2500k owner myself I think you're making a great choice.

4.5 Ghz, 24/7. First time I ever OC'ed anything and it couldn't have been easier. I haven't tried to OC it higher yet, but I fully intend to. But I'll probably keep it at 4.5 for 24/7 use.
