MB choice needed (going to buy it tomorrow)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
sorry to bother all. i am thinking to pick one of the following budget mbd(they are in stock in microcenter), asus p8z68-v lx, asus p8z68-m pro, gigabyte ga-z68ma-d2h-b3, biostar tz68a+rch, as well as asrock e3 g3. my cpu is 2500k, i need little bit overclock to 4.1/4.3ghz. but i need run it 7/24 for scientific computation with 100% cpu load, 1 project might take 7-10 days.


i hope to pick a most stable one. i don't need any fancy functions, i even do not have a video card. also i don't need overclock too much, 4.5ghz max(i think 4.2/4.3 might be safe), but i do need stable, since the project cost too much time to calculate.


do you have any suggestion? thanks a bunch.

thanks, i know it's very good one, but too expansive for me.
after finishing this project, i am going to sell the computer. i don't want to spend too much money on it, as a poor student. thanks
