The Asus Maximus IV is overpriced unless you plan to use triple gpu cards or LN2

The Gigabyte boards lack the UEFI bios.

The Asus Sabretooth does not overclock as well as the Pro and the shield gimmick can trap heat unless you are using a top down air cooler.

ASRock boards are ok but Asus RMA service is much quicker if needed (and up until recently ASRock boards were average at best...)

The P8P67 Deluxe is pretty much a Pro with some extras (dual lan, onboard power/reset, USB 3.0 front breakout box). I had both the Pro and now the Deluxe and they provide identical overclocks.
I'm picking up a motherboard soon. I plan on overclocking a i5-2500K to 5ghz and using SLI GTX570s with a good liquid air cooler. I have the money for either a Maximus IV Extreme or a P67a UD7 but are you telling me that the P8P67 Pro would work the same for cheaper?

When talking about OCing, yes, Pro will perform pretty much the same as those two other boards (especially when talking about "only" 5Ghz, afterall, it is about how well your chip is). If you really want to squeeze the last Hz of the chip, perhaps then there will be a difference, I don't really know.

I just bought the core i7-2600k. I'm simply into making music and could care less about graphics or the sort right now. All I'm interested in is at least 8 gigs of ram and a good processor. Basically, that's all I know so far.

I was looking at this motherboard:

Why is it so cheap? I don't want references. I want to understand WHY it is good/bad for the i7-2600k? What makes this motherboard so different from the ones you guys are recommending? Is it sufficient for my needs of producing music?

+1 for the UD4 or P8P67 Pro. I've had both(UD4 being the B3 replacement) and achieved 4.5Ghz on my i5-2500K with 1.36v easily.

I went purchased the ASUS P8P67-M PRO (REV 3.0) motherboard. My case is mid-form factor. I have the i7-2600k. My main purpose is for music production.

Do you think this was a good choice as far as a motherboard for my i7-2600k?

When it comes to motheboard I only trust two brand names, Asus and Gigabyte.

I was going to get the EVO but decided to stick with what I have been going to for the last 8 years - Gigabyte.

I believe I need to replace my B2 board since this is considered a ticking timebomb. Just ordered UD5 today from Newegg and call it a day.

These are much better choices. Both performance & price.

*If you're planning on using SSDs, buy Z68 versions of boards.
