Mother board for SLI, i5 2500K, OC and video out

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi, i am looking for a mother board which will allow me to do sli and over clock that i5 2500K.

Problem is, i want to wait for the amd 7950 before buying a graphics card. Right now i need a computer with a good cpu more than a good gpu, so the gpu can wait a bit. So i need a mother board with video out that i can OC with and do SLI.

I don't know which one is the best for me, budget max 150 €.

thanks

How much can i overclock with them? I don't plan on doing extreme overclock, maybe i'll try to get to 4 or 4,5 ghz

what's the difference between the Asus P8Z68-V B3 and the Asus P8Z68-V

Both boards above can OC to 4.5GHz provided you got a good CPU. Some batches of 2500K are bad of OC.

No difference between non-B3 and B3. You should only worry about B3 when you are dealing with H67 or P67.

cool thanks

a question that just came up, what fan should i buy for the over clock? I've been looking at the cooler master hyper 212 plus and the corsaire a70

the corsair is huge, i dont know if it will fit in a zalman z9 plus, and i've read that the 212 plus was good enough. But i'm not sure which one to take

another question, would it be better to get a P8P67 pro with a cheap graphics card, or the one with P8Z68 v

A70 performs a bit better than 212 Plus/EVO, but it is usually more expensive and larger.

My advice, light OC (like to 4.5 GHz), stick with 212 Plus/EVO. Serious OC (between 4.5 GHz to 4.9 GHz) stick with D14, Silver Arrow, or all in one water cooling. Extreme OC (5.0 GHz and above), custom water cooling loop.

I second that suggestion.

I have an ASRock P67 Extreme4 Gen3 and I'm very satisfied with it. It's a great overclocker, running my 2500K @ 4.8Ghz. I could go higher, but I prefer running it at a low voltage. I believe ASRock has the fastest post and boot, my buddy's ASUS board takes eight times longer to post. With ASRock, you're getting an ASUS quality board for a lower price.

I'm using a Noctua D-14 cooler. It's pricier than the 212, but the performance increase is worth it. If you're on a budget the 212 is the best bang for the buck. I would stay away from the H70, I've had bad results with it, the H100 isn't too bad, but I still love my D-14.

If you are not going to use a GPU for the time being get the Z68.
