Oh wow. I asked the exact same question a little over a month ago. smile.gif I think I even had the same thread title!

The answer ended up being the P8P67 Pro. However, I chose the EVO because it has more stuff to look at (that extra heatsink right above the first PCI-E slot). Although, I was told that I wasted my money because the EVO is no more overclockable than the Pro.

So, I recommend the P8P67 Pro.

So your telling me the pro is better than the ASUS MAXIMUS IV EXTREME LGA or the Evga ftw?? I know i spent the extra money on a Classified 3 for my 1366 , and holy crap its a amazing board overclocked to 4.0ghz like nothing. Now i know its supposed to be a great board for the money ( asus pro), and its popular on this website. But the best for overclocking really? Just asking because i was planning 2600k build , and plan on going high end on my board ( i believe its worth it)

Hrolli34's goal is only 4.8GHz or 5.0GHz. So the best board for that is still the P8P67 Pro because it can easily achieve it as long as the CPU is capable of it. If he wants to go beyond 5GHz, then I might recommend the P8P67 Deluxe. If he wants to do extreme overclocking using sub-zero cooling and whatnot, then I will recommend something like the Maximus IV. Otherwise, the P8P67 Pro is all he will need.

How do I know? Ask here:

>>The Official ASUS P8P67/P8Z68 Series Owners Club>>

I'm not saying to ask them how I know, but to ask them if the P8P67 EVO, Deluxe or other more-expensive ASUS boards are worth the money when all you want to do is overclock with air cooling to 4.8GHz to maybe 5GHz.

Therefore, I'm not saying that the P8P67 Pro is the best damn board on the market for overclocking 1155. I'm saying that based on everything Hrolli34 said, the best one will be the P8P67 Pro. Just ask in the The Official ASUS P8P67/P8Z68 Series Owners Club.

Yeah, these boards are really quite amazing! When I ordered my EVO, I was kind of laughed at (in a friendly way though) because I wasted an extra like $20 just because I like the way it looks due to having that extra pretty heatsink above the PCI-E slot. I like my board quite a bit, though. It reminds me of how awesome the EP45-UD3P is!
