What is the best motherboard for the i5-2500K
 
I had a gigabyte EX58-UD5 that was great but I hear it my not be that good for the 2500K .How about Asrock or Evga,I need it to be able to run SLI and be around $150.I was looking at the GIGABYTE GA-Z68XP-UD3 $140
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128512
or the EVGA Z68 SLI 130-SB-E685-KR $150
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813188097
or theASRock P67 EXTREME4 GEN3 $170
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813157265
I am not sure what would be the best one to go with.I have three GTX 470's but not really wanting to run three of them because of the noise.

A Z68 chipset seems to be the best motherboard for SandyBridge overclocking.

I'm personally running a ASUS P8Z68-V Pro/Gen3 motherboard. I have my 2500K clocked at 4.5GHZ on air cooling. Runs rock solid.

I would venture a guess and say your 4.5ghz is due more to your luck with the CPU than the ability of that motherboard.

Still, I think SRT is a very good reason to go with Z68 and the ASUS P8Z68-V Pro is what I'd buy if I was in the market.

Nobody likes EVGA any more?
