If you will be doing any very extreme overclocking using sub-zero cooling like liquid nitrogen (LN2), dry ice and the like, then the Deluxe is the way to. However, I see that you have a Hyper 212 Plus, so a board that is like the P8P67 Pro would be more than enough.

So it really just comes down to the features that each board has (that is, features that aren't related to overclocking). For a very basic example, I would prefer the ASUS P67 board because it has a UEFI instead of a BIOS.

Ok I ditched the Gigabyte mobo and the Asus Deluxe mobo as well, I think I'm gonna get a P8P67 EVO motherboard (has some cool features the PRO doesn't have), thanks for the help.

I also didn't notice until now that it was a kinda unfair comparison, the Gigabyte board is missing a lot of features I didn't notice before.

Oh! I didn't know that either. Although, I didn't have time to compare either.

Anyway, that's a good choice. Although, I'm biased.

So what made you choose the i7-2600K over the i5-2500K? I'm just honestly curious so that I can get my geek on.

I chose the 2600k over the 2500k because I'm going to be video editing and that HT speed boost would be nice.
