Hey, Im looking for an LGA 1155 motherboard that can survive overclocking and gaming. It needs to have 3 PCIE Slots (Spaced to fit 3 Double Slot VGA Cards) or 4 PCIE Slots (Spaced to fit 4 Double Slot VGA Cards), The motherboard has to be a reasonable price by this I mean that i have a budget for the motherboard of £150 - £180/ $233 - $280.

Thanks, Greatly appreciated if you help out.

5.2 GHz is a mighty high overclock. Few chips can make it that high. Just forewarning you before you get your hopes up to high. Not too many boards have triple PCIe, let alone quad PCIE, but here's a shot:

Triple PCIE:
GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD5H LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Quad PCIE:
GIGABYTE G1.Sniper 3 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard
