Mobo selection advice

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have already pretty much made up my mind to go with the P8Z68-V PRO, I just want to make sure I am getting the most for my money.

CPU - i7-2600k (I want to OC to 4.5-4.7)
CPU Cooler - NH-D14
Case - FT02B
GPU - GTX 580 (SLI)

I want to use the onboard sound and easy OC features, but would I be better off getting the LE version instead of the PRO?

No. LE and LX are not designed for OC. They can do light OC but that's about it.

Ok thanks that is what I figured. Most of my trolling through here led me to the same conclusion.
