Need a benching board on a budget

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am looking to build a new system with a Phenom II. I need a motherboard that does the following:
1. has am3+ support (990x/990fx)
2. capable of core unlocking
3. has the ability to bench a cpu under DICE or LN2
4. costs less than 160 (preferably)
I plan on using a Phenom II x4 960t and unlocking it to an x6(yes, the 960t will unlock). Eventually, I would like to experiment with DICE and LN2 an possibly a bulldozer/piledriver CPU. Here are some options I compiled:
sub 160:

over 160:

Preferably, I would like a motherboard under 160, but I'm willing to spend more if it is worth it.
Thanks!

I'm probably not going to get an msi board. I've had problems with them in the past....
