Hello. Im going to overclock my Intel 2600K system to around 5.5-6GHZ. Will the following equipment allow these speeds and be stable at the same time. Im buying from TigerDirect and shipping to Australia, so much cheaper in the US. So here are the parts

Intel Core i7 2600K
ASUS Sabertooth TUF
Dominator GT 2133MHZ (2)
Corsair Obsidian 800D
Seagate XT Hard Drive 1TB
Samsung Burner/Writer
MSI Afterburner 6970 2GB SLI
Corsair H80
Corsair AX-850

Here is an example of what you get from using an very expensive " enthusiast" motherboard

compared to a regular p67 board

NOTHING !

And since pretty much any P67 motherboard will let you OC to insane speeds the major difference is in your wallet

nicely put Outlander! also, make sure to run your Prime95 if you are OC'ing. Speed is nice, but you dont want a highly unstable system.
