It's only a little more expensive so it's a very good investment IMO It's also Tom's approved! Other than that, everything looks good to go i3atesy September 4, 2012 11:40:31 PM hey mate what if im only overclocking at say 4ghz would the asus be fine for that overclock?

Get the answer TheBigTroll September 5, 2012 12:00:26 AM yep and it would be easier than to do it on a asrock board. beefier power designs dont make too much of a difference at lower overclocks. asus boards are known to be good at overclocking mocchan September 5, 2012 12:12:40 AM ^ What Troll said. If you're only going up a few hundred Mhz, then the ASUS board will do just fine.
