Best STABLE mb for 2600k??

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys Im having a hell of time trying to get my system going as it should.

-First I bought the MSI p67a-gd55: Great mb, but it has a well known problem with idle BSOD's due to CPU voltage unstability problems.

-Then I bought the ASUS P8P67 Deluxe: Again, great board but now its having a well know problem of fail POST during a cold boot due to RAM voltage unstability issues.

This really sucks, because Im loosing money like crazy. I just want a good stable board that OC's well and does not give me any problems. What do you guys suggest?

The RAM defaults at 1.49 [native voltage] but I also tried 1.60, which still gives me the same problem. I also turned on XMP, and same.

and once again, gigabyte might not be fancy looking, have those silly little gimmick features, or have a name like "super ultimate extreme ultra rage ***bbq" (ok... the killer assassin is pretty absurd but we arnt talking about THOSE GA boards), but they tend to work when you want your computer to not catch fire.

I was thinking of going back to them as my previous board was the well known GA-EP45-UD3P and boy was that board Tonka tough. I also looked at Asrock but I never owned one before, so its new waters for me.
