    I need a board for a 2600K.

    Which would be the best board for me keeping in mind the following requirements (in order of importance):

    1. Allows me all options to overclock the processor as far as the processor goes (do not want to be limited by board).
    2. Under $200
    3. NB/SB/VREGs stay cool. Will potentially have waterblocks in the future for the chipset.

    The Asus had good reviews. I ended up picking it up.
