1155 motherboard for 2500k 5ghz

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
Hey guys....

I guess I'm going to upgrade my system because I want sata3 and some new stuff. I'm going to shoot for 5ghz with a 2500k so I'm wondering what the best board is. I'd prefer ASUS but will consider other options. I don't want to spend much more than 200. I was thinking the P67 Sabertooth but I've heard some bad things about it.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

sabourtooth will not give you 5Ghz on that chip, usually. ASUS marketing rep said it is a board to be used for stock speeds although it can overclock.

I would get a p8p67 evo

Man if the CPU can handle it, most P67 can do 5.0. My Asrock P67 pro3 is a solid board and took my 2600K to 4.8. Could take it to 5.0 but it was to much heat for my Noctua to handle. I bought the the board for 65 bucks from newegg open box and it was a great budget board. My Asus P8P67 Deluxe in my main rig has the same overclocking potential as my Asrock for a lot more money. The only difference is my Asus has a crapload of overclocking options.

I'm nervous to go ASRock to be honest. I've never known ASRock to be anything but budget. I know they've changed but still. I don't NEED 5ghz but I don't want to buy anything that's going to limit the cpu potential.

The P8P67 EVO is better than the sabertooth?

This one right? http://www.directcanada.com/products/?sku=10530BD1522&vpn=P8P67%20EVO%20REV%203.0&manufacture=ASUS

Don't know if the sabertooth is better than the evo. From my understanding the sabertooth is more towards longivity and comes with a longer warranty. The P8P67 EVO I believe has a 12 phase VRM so in theory it should overclock better than the Sabertooth since it only comes with a 8 VRM design. I have the deluxe and it comes with a 16 phase vrm design and I feel my asrock can keep up with it regardless of its 8 phase design. Like I said before the deluxe and evo (maybe the sabertooth aswell never dealt with it) have a lot of overclocking options for hitting those uber high overclocks of over 5.2+.

What's better? The Deluxe or the EVO? EDIT: Dumb question, looks like the Deluxe...


Here's my cart so far:

2500k
ASUS P8P67 Deluxe
GSKILL 2x4GB 1600mhz SNIPER (http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231416) - I need short heat spreaders....

The deluxe is the next step up from an evo. As far as Asus P67 is concerned it is the P8P67 Deluxe, the P8P67 WS Revolution (comes with the NF200 chip to give you pcie x16, x8, x8), and the top dog being the Maximus Extreme 4.

It looks like the only thing I'm not getting is PCI-E 3 but that doesn't bother me much. I just bought a GPU so I doubt I'll be looking for a new one anytime soon and even if I do I'm sure it will work fine with PCI-E 2.

Looks like I've narrowed it down to the cart above. Now I just need to figure out if that ram is any good. I don't see very many people using "GSKILL SNIPER" memory....

I'm using sniper on z68 now, I had the ASUS P8P67 Deluxe and it handled 16GB at 1866 (stock is 1600 1.5v) and it worked great! also got my 2500k to 5.1 on 1.51vcore, but just take note that not every chip will be able to do 5GHz. i ditched that because my friend didn't want this gigabyte and he gave me $85 with this board for mine thumb.gif

Yes, EVO is better. Like i said, ASUS themselves said Sabourtooth was not built with OC'ing in mind, however i do stress, it can still OC well.
Good luck man!

Edit: If you want the best ASUS P67 board, this is it.
