Hey guys. I am switching out my 1090T (finally.) and I need a new motherboard.

I loved my CrossHair IV never had an issue, overclocking was a dream.

I'm kinda stick on Asus now but I've never touched other brands and my knowledge isn't anything to brag about. I'd love some serious opinions and what I'd benefit from and which features would be wasted.

Money isn't too much of an issue, as long as I can stay under £250.

I've been using my usb 3.0 a lot. and overclocking features are a must as I like to have options.

I'm using an i7 2600k and currently using a 6990. (Will likely get another in the future for upgrade, but if not it'll be a whole new card so it won't matter. So I need a board that'll let me run two 6990 as an option for future. And ofc that'll need two 16x pci-e.

Thanks for any info. Really the cheaper the better, but not so cheap i'm stuck next time I upgrade my system again.

I would suggest Asus or Gigabyte with a Z68 Chipset.

The Asus Maximus IV Extreme is the counterpart to your Crosshair, and although pricy is definitely worth it.

A step down from that would be the Asus Sabertooth P67. Again, very solid choice.
