    Basicly as stated in title, i'm looking for some suggestions/advices buying proper matx mobo (if there/s any within my budget range) for my new 2500k, something that is capable of OCing.

    budget: 150$ max!!

    TA :nutkick:

    SLI worth the premium? As that's the only difference I can really see.

    Nah i'm not that deep into gaming and i rly doubt i'll be going for second gpu (got EVGA gtx 550ti atm) as the current one is more than enough for my needs and budget lol.

    Pro4-M it is.

    Sorted. :toast:

    I currently use a P8Z77 m pro with a 2500k and running rock solid 4.5ghz 24/7

    I paid 130$ for the mobo, NCIX.ca web deal the week it came out.
