Which p67 Motherboard?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
The market seems to be swamped with p67 boards of varying prices, and im not sure how much money I should be spending. All i need is SLI support, and im only going to be sticking 4gb of 1600mhz ram in there. And it has to be a decent overclocker. Do more expensive boards overclock better or last longer?

I hear budget wise that the high end Biostar is good for overclocking and possesses great build quality. I personally opted for the AsRock P67 Extreme4. I have no idea why but it has a nice UEFI bios and an software overclock utility.

Take the ASUS motherboard. It rocks.

ASUS motherboard has more CPU power phases VS that MSI board.

so that it means it has better power delivery right?
according to tomshardware it overclocks the best too! Thing is, i could get the msi with a free 212 hyper plus for the same price, im being tempted to the dark side...

I'm sure the MSI board will do fine too

But the ASUS one is the best of these two in my opinion.

Do what you feel is right for you mate

but why? also i kind of have 2 other questions - will having an msi mobo with 2 msi gpus somehow make all the little homunculi (big word ) in the hardware work faster? Also is the 212 hyper plus actually good? isnt it kind of old and mid-low range?

As I've said, the ASUS one have more CPU power phases, and is considered one of the best overclockers.

It won't make a difference using MSI GPU's in MSI board or ASUS board

Hyper 212+ is considered/If not the best performance/price ratio cooler. It does it's job very well.

It can maintain a Sandybridge cool enough at + ~1.45v Vcore.
