1366 i7 OC mobo suggestions

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I've got an EVGA 3x SLI mobo now, and I think it died...again. I'm gonna RMA it, and just sell the RMA. I'm tired of the board. It OC's well, but I'm just tired of it. I need a board that will get me to at least 4.5 GHz easily, as that's about where I want my chip to go. I'm on water right now, and previously I was able to get a 98% stable 4.5 OC out of my chip with around 1.4 vcore, and is 100% stable at 4.2 with 1.25 vcore. I'd rather stay away from EVGA for now...I'm a little weary of their boards. Also, if you have a board just laying around, I'm open to making offers as well, although PM me, as I dont think this is the place to handle that kind of exchange.

your chip needs to be able to do 4.5ghz. I had a X58A-UD5 rev 2.0 that did 4.5ghz very easily. Or you can wait for the X58A-OC board but it has no features, only basic audio and a few USb 2.0 ports. IDK how much it will be, but probably expensive. I have a G1 assassin board and it does 4.5ghz too.
