im thinking about buying this and want to know if this board is good for overclocking
Depends on what clock you want to reach. If you're looking for some extreme OC's I would recommend the Gigabyte boards. 3.8-4GHz shouldn't be a problem with any half decent board.
well this is my first build and i dont see myself trying to get over 4 ghz so ill stay with my p6t
I'd recommend the UD4P. It's been nice to me.
+1 for EX58-UD4P
Yea I am sitting at 3.6ghz on my i7 920 atm...40C idle, 50C load
Funny... temps have nothing to do with motherboards. There are a few boards that are easily the best out of the box. Gigabyte UD4, UD5, and Extreme (all the same really), and the Foxconn Bloodrage/Bloodrage GTI. The DFI x58 UT is good as well, but it needs some improvements. They keep releasing too many bios updates that fix one problem and make another.
YES this is one of the Best.I have my I7 920 CO step at 4.2 with Zero problems CPU voltage at 1.35 bios.This may seem high but my idle temps are 45ish and Prime 100% 70ish now please look at prime # with a little give and take nothing will use 100% load on that CPU it is a stress test only.If u get a good Ccpu COOLER YOU WILL GOOD 2 GO.i USE THE cOOLiT dOMINO and as a simple water cooler works great.
i cant w8 just odered it yester day should be here tommorow or the next day
