Have my CPU picked out, the Sandy E 3930k, and I'm most likely getting the GA x79 UD5, 8 dimm's, quad channel memory for audio production in 64x mode.

What do you guys predict will be the best pick for the following reasons:

1: Best for Overclocking?

2: Will be most popular and easy for installing legitimate retail Mac OS with? Kind of like the 2600k and P67A UD3.

3. Best BIOS and OC'ing options?
The Gigabyte UD5 has a cool button for OC'ing on the back, simply click to turn off OC settings and return to normal if not using audio/video programs, then click back on before booting next time around.

We don't have any idea how the boards will perform let alone what kinda settings will they have in the BIOS, so we can't give you anymore information than you already have.

1. Not sure yet, most boards will be ~ the same, the Asus Rampage IV looks to be very nice and so does the UD7
2. not allowed to be spoken of on OCN
3. BIOS is being replaced by UEFI, most boards will be ~ the same

Be sure to check out this thread: http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...iscussion.html

1. They should all pretty much overclock the same just like P67/Z68. Will depend more on the chip then the board.

2. No clue

3. I believe Asus will have the best bios

I've also read Gigabyte is not switching to true UEFI, if that's any consolation
