Best overclocking 1155 mobo under 230$?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My current mobo is somewhat limited and am looking for another p67 mobo with:

-8x/8x sli
-excellent voltage regulation
-stable power settings at high overclocks (c1e, EIST and preferably c6)
-good mosfet cooling

Looking to drop my 5ghz chip in a mobo than can push it further!

1155 overclocking is more in the chip than the mobo, even the cheapest boards out there can get a 2500k to 5Ghz or more if the chip can do it.
Gigabyte p67 ud4, Asus p67 pro & asrock extreme 4 look like the most popular ~$200 boards.

For $230 why not go Z68 instead? My GA-Z68XP-UD4 runs $210 and is a solid board. No boot/cycling issues.

For really high speeds, like 5Ghz and beyond a good motherboard becomes just as important for a stable power supply.
