Looking for motherboard to overclock I5 750 to 3.4Mhz

Hi guys,
I want to overclock my I5 750. I want to spend around 100-130$, Maybe Put 2 cards in crossfire in the future also .Which board you suggest me ?

Does overclocking from 2.66 to 3.4 will make a noticeable difference in gaming and other tasks?
I can run all my games maxout, except crysis 2, I get 30ish fps with the dx11 and high resolution patch, Thats why Im looking to overclock, to maxout the very demanding games....Do you think its worth it ?


GIGABYTE GA-H55M-UD2H <----- I dont trust this cheap motherboard.
I5 750 2.66GHZ 8MB Quad Core
COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus
Sapphire Radeon HD 6950 Dirt3 Edition
Kingston Hyper-X KHX1600C9D3K2/4GX
Western Digital 500gigs BLACK 32mo WD5001AALS
ULTRA LifeTime Series Pro 650W 135MM FAN

    Ok thanks
  3. I've built 3 machines with i5-750 processors, Xigmatek coolers, and cheap Gigabyte motherboards. Two of them easily went to 3.9GHz, the third went to 3.8GHz. They have all been running for almost 2 years with no problems.

    I've built 4 other computers with the cheap Gigabyte motherboards and core2duo processors, all of them are still running with no problems.
  4. In the past my favorite was the ASUS P7P55D-E PRO: 12+2+2 phase, USB 3.0/2.0, SATA 2/SATA3, SLI/CF.

    However, now on Amazon about the best is the ASUS P7P55D-E: 12+2 phase, USB 3.0/2.0, SATA 2/SATA3, 1 GPU.
