Do the classifieds or any other board really make that much difference as far as overclocking, and which one should I get? I will always only run 2 cards max, ie 2 4870x2's or 2 5970's etc, so either board will suffice as far as x16 lanes for me... I just want to have the most overclocking potential and don't mind paying the extra cash for it... I like the bloodrage, but you just cant find the damn things, also like the rampage II but those are out of stock at newegg right now as well.

It does make a difference yes, it should overclock higher, and more easily, but I think you'll be let down with your cooling before you notice the difference.

If you built a water cooling loop, then I'd recommend the Classified.

The something like the Classified would probably do wonders for your maximum overclock. With a good water cooling loop, (at least a triple radiator, something like the RX360 or BIX360) then (depending on your CPU) I think you could probably hit 4.6GHz+

However, get the new loop first, and see if youc are impressed by your P6T's overclocking ability under water. If you're not, then get a Classified.


Although, I just had a thought: Does the Antec 1200 accept E-ATX motherboards?

Edit: No, I'm pretty sure it doesn't. That rules out the Classified for you.


Edit for the second time: If you're only going to run two cards, and you don't mind being limited to 6GB of RAM, then the Foxconn Bloodrage seems to be the motherboard for you. With a quick and easy vmod, they can run Core i7 920s at ~4.8GHz 24/7 under water.

gbrilliantq - a member here has that setup.
