I5 2500K Mother board with some OC options ?


Mar 15, 2011
Hello everyone!

After deciding to build myself a new PC, I noticed that I knew pretty much every parts that will go in, but the dreaded Motherboard.

Basically, I am planning on OC'ing with an Intel i5-2500K. GPU Will be a GTX 570. I plan to SLI that card later.

Ram would be 8 GB. PSU of 750W.

Budget varies from 150-200 $ for the motherboard.

Do you guys have any suggestions? Thanks !
Here are a couple boards that I like in that price range. Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3P, the Intel® Desktop board DZ68BC, Asus P8Z68-V/GEN3 and MSI Z68A GD65 (GEN3) all of them are nice boards that should fit right within your price range and get good features wiht it.
