Suggestions on new motherboard!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey all

I was looking at 1155 motherboards as I've just bought an i5 2500k.

What do you guys make of this board?
GA P67a UD3P B3

Bear in mind that I'm on a budget and I will be wanting to OC to maybe 4ghz.

Thanks!

Cheers
I know this is probably a stupid question, but would it be feasible to paint over the blue parts of the heatsinks with some heat resistant paint? It is really picky but I'm going for a red/black theme!
