Okay, so I am buying a computer (probably tomorrow actually) and I am debating as to which motherboard to get.
I am currently set on getting the following:

Antec 1200
i5-760
Corsair H50 Liquid Cooling (it's not your standard liquid cooling, it's a closed system)
OCZ ModXstream Pro 700 Watt PSU
Sapphire Radeon HD5850
WD Caviar Green 1TB


Now, I am wanting to get a ASUS P7P55D. The problem is that there are several different kinds.

There is the:
P7P55D-LE
P7P55D-E-LX
P7P55D-E
P7P55D-PRO
P7P55D-DELUXE

Now, what's the difference in overclocking? I really want to be pushing this poor CPU up to 4.0/4.2ghz (just cuz it's fun to watch the hamster run) but I want it to be functional. There is a deal where I'm buying this stuff making the Deluxe version like only $35 more than the cheapest LE version, which makes me consider it. Will this impact the overclocking possibilities significantly?

I am really confused about this and I would LOVE some help as I'm kind of in a rush... and you're never supposed to rush things with computers :( .

I like ASUS, but I love EVGA and most of my gaming rigs are built with their MOBOs. The are easy to OC and offer substantial power, performance and stability as you've described.

Based upon OC - EVGA P55 | 132-LF-E655 - KR http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Also, based upon your desired OC I would strongly recomend the Corsair H70 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

What other uses or components do you need; just to insure the best choice/compatability?

I have also heard good things about those cards, but unfortunately I cannot get those through my provider.

If I may ask - who's your provider? ... so I can see what choices you have.


The provider is www.dustin.se (it's in Swedish but you can click the british flag at the top).

Regarding the H70, I'll look into it right away ;D

I would get the deluxe for the remote that allows you to reset the bios,instead of opening the case to do it.
