Not the same idea.

Base clock is not a bus.

Base clock, reference clock, and external clock are synonymous and have always been around.

In past generations (Athlon XP and earlier, Core 2 and earlier) of x86 CPUs, the reference clock was directly tied to the front-side bus, and most other clocks were derived from the FSB through a system of multipliers and dividers.

There is no longer a need for a front-side bus, so the reference clock stands alone. Otherwise things are pretty similar, most clocks are derived from base clock by a system of multipliers and dividers.

Biostar TP67XE - Best bang for buck mobo for 1155.

Personally I have had good experience's with ASUS for a very long time, therefore I would say the Asus P8P67 PRo is the one, however, other mobo's at similar or lower prices are just as good. For example the best bang for buck is the BIOSTAR TP67XE, coming in at only $125. The next one seems to be the asrock P67 Extreme4, which without a doubt, has been absolutly amazing for some and I have heard nothing but good things about it, same with the Biostar.

I would recommend you to go with one that suits your needs best in term of features and past experiences. I personally would either go for the Asus P8P67 PRO or the Asrock P67 Extreme4.

Just a note, any mid range mobo with 8+2 and above, power phase would do. The overclocking capability is mostly down to the CPU.

Hope that helps
I agree with everthing in your post. That's a first for me.

I own two ASRock P67 Extreme4's and one Asus P8P67 vanilla. I also read a lot of reviews for the Biostar MB.

Yeah the ASRock Extreme4 is a really solid board for the price especially... it's definitely been great overclocking with this board. There might be a few things better with the ASUS board but meh I'm really satisfied with this....... got me to 4.9ghz anyway.

Indeed. I actually ended up going with the Biostar one after looking at some reviews, and a 9 board comparison. For the price, it just makes no sense not to. I do like Asus, I've used them before, but they are pricier. Never tried Biostar but from what I read it is known to be a good quality, good overclocker for the price and I wont need tons of bells and whistles for this build. Also happens to have firewire and SLI. It's perfect.

This is what I'm going with for my Uncle.
