Going for a 2500K...what motherboard? - Page 2

post #11 of 18
I have the ASRock p67 Extreme 4 Gen 3. Crazy easy to OC to 4.8GHz. Some of that is due to Sandy Bridge though.

I paid $154. Was kinda worried at first because I usually always buy Asus, but this board is pretty awesome.

ASUS P67/Z68 boards are pretty good. I have a P8Z68-V (and oddly enough a hyper 212+ as well) and it keeps my 2500k at around 35 degrees idle and 55-65 load (depending on what I am doing).

OC'd to 4.5GHz at 1.32v 24/7.

The Hyper 212 Plus is enough to handle at least 4.5GHz.

I'd recommend something from ASRock's P67 Etreme-series or ASUS' P8P67-series.

I love my Gigabyte Z68X-UD4. The only problem I have with it is the PCI-E x1 is between the 2 PCI-E x16 slots and my Titanium HD starves GPU 1 to 90c. I have a UD5 on the way to remedy this situation.

A fantastic mid-range mobo, it's highly recommended by basically everyone that owns it, including myself.
