If you are not going to take your chip over 4.0/4.2 ( Highest possible on Air ) then there is not much need for a very high end motherboard. even the LE will get to 4.0ghz.

i think the p6x58d-e is pretty cool, what with usb3.0 etc.

check my sig if i needed a low end board might as well keep my set up and get a i7 1156 im running 4.0ghz easy with my current set... im upgrading not downgrading thx for the suggestion though.

i'm going for i7 930 to start if i dont like it ill go extreme .....
