Solved Best Overclocking motherboard for i7 to hit 4ghz or higher? $120-$250 Tags: Motherboards Overclocking Intel i7 Product Last response: November 22, 2009 11:14 PM in Motherboards Share nitros85 November 8, 2009 12:09:39 AM I would prefer to spend no more than $150. Any suggestions? I want to OC my i7 to at least 4ghz and want a MB that won't crap out on me. I also want two PCI-E slots at 16x/16x each, and preferably 3-4 slots total. A black or red color design is even better, but as I read the Foxconn Bloodrage isn't as good as motherboards similar in price- and I can't get it at newegg open box.

Most boards will let you clock up to 4GHz, but I'd recommend Gigabyte, Asus or EVGA to do it nicely. Running 16x/16x will be good on the Asus P6TD (leaves you a 4x for a 3rd card) and you still get to keep the 1x slot too, but it's more than your budget. Getting 3 or 4 slots with black & red moves you towards the EVGA X58 3-way SLI Classified, but that's twice your budget. nitros85 November 14, 2009 11:50:42 PM I went with the Asrock x58 Extreme for $120 It overclocks amazingly and I hit 4ghz without a single problem, solely based on their automatic overclock. From there I just lowered voltages a ton. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
