Recommend me a MoBo

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Looking for a MoBo to OC my new i5 2500k on.
Not interested in CF/SLI
Needs to be pretty cheap...
Want to try and hit 4.5-5ghz without burning stuff up
Looking like a showdown between ASRock Pro3, ASrock extreme4 and BIOSTAR TP67XE. I am not made of money though so if you can assure me that the Pro3 won't blow up my shiny new i5 and itself then i am all for it.

But then again looking at this review of the Pro3: http://www.proclockers.com/motherboa...d.html?start=5

I'd say if they can hit 4.7 stable on this board, its pretty good

Easy, TP67XE. $140 at microcenter. Great board.

You should definitely get the TP67XE; Solid OCer and one of the best color schemes (some of us care about aesthetics ya know ). From prior experience owning a Biostar x58 board, I can wholeheartedly vouch for a solid, reliable, and plain kick-ass product for great overclocks
