suggestions for a 2600k mobo


looking for a solid mobo for a 2600k. would like to do some overclocking, system will have a 6990 and the cpu will be watercooled with a swiftech xt wb. was kinda leaning toward a maximus IV or a p8p67 mobo but dont really know which one to go for yet. any suggestions/thoughts are welcomed. thx

If you have too much money then go for maximus IV but most cheaper boards are good enough for some oc. From cheaper boards I think that ASRock P67 Extreme 4/6 are really good, stable and oc well ( not only because I have one ).

I have the Asrock Extreme6 and it's a very nice board. Much much better quality than my previous Asrock experiences some years ago with socket 939 and LGA775.

I'm very happy with the P8P67 Deluxe. Is a solid board for a decent price.
