Which Motherboard should I pick?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I know there have been a ton of these threads, but I really need some help. I finally got the okay from the wife to build, so I need to make a decision.

Basically what I am wanting is an extremely stable overclock. I don't need 5ghz, but I was thinking around 4.5. I also would like to keep the cost down around 150.00 and no more than 200.00 for sure.

I have been looking at these:

BIOSTAR TP67XE
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.589453

ASRock P67 Extreme4 LGA (Sold out, not sure how long the wait would be.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813157217

GIGABYTE GA-P67A-UD4
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...&Tpk=p67%20ud4

It doesn't have to be out of these 3 by any means. I just want a nice stable and somewhat hassle-free board.


Thank you in advance for your help.

Both, the Biostar & Gigabyte mobo are good mobos but between those particular mobos you have selected, I would go with Biostar I give Biostar extra points for having onboard power & reset buttons along with debug led indicator. Regarding to Biostar's performance, take some time & read this...Tom's Hardware Article: P67 Motherboard Roundup.

The BioStar TP67xe is a soild one at that price range. 8+2 phases should be good enough for most OC.
