The Asus sabertooth x79, P9x79 LE and the Gigabyte GA-X79-UP4. I admit they are not the most expensive but they are alot better then some of the other motherboards in their price ranges.

When i say about a proper motherboard, i mean whats the point in spending that amount of money on a 3930k and getting one of the cheaper boards?

You can never have too many phases for sb-e. They get very power hungry when you start to overclock them

well,the point is that maybe you already pushed your budget too much to get that 4930k,so saving on the motherboard might be the only way for you to go 6core...
i guess everybody would aggree that 4930k+200 euro mobo is anyday a better deal than 4820k+400 euro mobo...for about the same money...so there you go...

then again if getting a 4820k and comparing with 4770k you have again to take a reasonably priced mobo to make up for the reduced performance per core...

personally i've seen too many times in the past that more phases and bells and whistles are way overrated when it comes to max OC and the only reason to get an expensive OC mobo is the bios for 2 things. First,since z68 they started crippling tge bios of cheaper board in the way of not even offering some OC options even though technically there is no reason for it...just to push you to the hihjer end ones if you want to OC. lame tactic but it does happen. This however i hope does not happen to x79 mobos cobsidering there is no really cheap mobo here,and its an enthousiast platform so it would be ubspeakable to not offer all OC options... Am I right on that?

The second reason is the bios again cobsidering having people working all the time on it to fix quirks and help improve OC...thats the only reason you go for the Asus ROG boards when you have extreme cooling etc...

in the end,for a normal OC with air/water if the UD3 has the needed bios options it should not OC any worse than a UP4 or sabertooth...
