Budget Intel Rig p55 Motherboard Help

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys.
I'm on a budget and I'm looking for the best overclocker.
I'm not looking at any gimmick such as usb 3 sata 6 crossfire or SLI.
Simply which board has the best VREG and overclockability.
Note, I do not care if it's microATX or ATX.
As long as it blast

I'll be overclocking an i3 540( Aiming for 4ghz with Hyper N ) (Achievable ???)
I would like your output on those 4 same price range board.
I will order from directcanada.com so I'll post the links here.

1-ASUS P7H55-M Pro
2-ASUS P7H55-M/CSM
3-ASUS P7P55 LX
4-MSI P55A-G55

AS you can see, all of them are under 100$.
I think p55>h55 in term of overclockability but I'm not sure.
I'm waiting for your thought !
Thank you

Note on the side, I do not care about company's either (Asus or MSI are both good IMO), just the best board for my money

Of the choices you have listed, I'd go with the MSI. The P7H55-M Pro is a solid board too, but I'd rather not have a matx. I've had several 1156 boards and the MSI GD-80 was my favorite, so I think the one you have listed would be nice as well. As for getting to 4ghz, you should have no problem with that.

That's great.
I'm currently discussing with an OCN member to probably buy his EVGA p55 FTW so if it doesn't work out I'll get that motherboard.
I'm just unsure about their Vreg I heard they were squeeshy.

That EVGA board is nice, but if you are going to try for a used one, any of the Gigabyte UD series boards are great. They seem to be able to get the highest bclk.
