Just going off my recent build with an i5-750, I was able to buy an Open Box MSI p55-GD65 motherboard for around $120 and I love it. It looks good, very cheap (though it doesn't have USB 3.0 or Sata III), has a VERY beefy power delivery system (called Dr. Mos) and has a great OC for dummies button. I'm happy very happy with it, but then again I haven't used the Asus Boards.

Cogage arrow with a 38mm yate loon. It's a fairly low VID chip (1.1V) so it runs pretty hot.

mm... i think you lost me XD

if its a low vid chip, doesn't that mean that you could potentially achieve higher OCs on less voltage? so that would mean that (by my understanding) that your specific cpu would run cooler not hotter.

There's a strong correlation between low VID and high temperatures.
