Hi guys, I am just wondering what motherboards you guys are using to pair up with the i5-2500k, and how you like it so far? I already bought the CPU, but still thinking of which motherboard to go for. I have narrowed down to these boards so far. Any suggestions will be appreciated, thanks
For a few builds I used the Asus P8P67 PRO (and one or two went with EVO), very good for RAM overclock. Never had problems with them so far, very easy to overclock, with the EVO I actually achieved 5.0GHz with a 2500k(I would not run it for too long like that though, this just to show you the potential). The graphical interface let's you overclock through Windows very easily.
Bottom line, very stable, the utilities are easy to use and useful.
The P8P67 PRO is a great mobo, and I agree with king. They were recalled not long ago, but any board shipping today will have been updated so not to worry. I can't speak for any of the other boards, as I go with Asus every time.
