The Asus Sabertooth is a great board, had good luck with it (overclocked friends 2500k. 4.3ghz (nothing magical or great, but it was easy and somewhat fun). No other experience with the other listed boards.

Just so you know OP 4.5ghz is not at all a guarantee. People on OCN tend to bandy that statement about because, I assume, you don't see a lot of bragging about mediocre overclocks on an enthusiasm forums, but the truth is that plenty of SB chips hit a wall at 4.4 or require stupid amounts of vcore to stay stable at 4.5ghz. There's a figure of diminishing returns out there (hopefully someone can link it) that shows what percentage of Sandy Bridge chips hit 4.5ghz and beyond, and it boils down to about 50% of chips can hit 4.5ghz and stay stable a reasonable vcore.

But hey, 50% is still pretty good odds. Not exactly what I'd call a "guarantee," but still, pretty good odds.

Out of the three i'd go with the Z68. As for the P67 like i mentioned before i already own one, but not worth it for the price. The ASUS P8P67 EVO (REV 3.0) is a much better buy then the Sabertooth P67. Sabertooth P67 looks nice, but don't fall for it, "I did". Lol. Doesn't mean i don't love it btw.

no one knows why, but apparently we wont see bulldozer till late september at the earliest

theories are amd yields are quite bad and they have to stockpile, if that is true i imagine the chips wont overclock much at all, and therefore are total crap.

I hope its not true because if your average bulldozer cant overclock to 4.4, amd is screwed

If you want true 16x 16x pci-e go for the Asus WS Rev. other wise I like the Asrock Extreme6. I have both & they both work well with the 2600K.
