Default Quick OCing mobo question

I'm currently doing as part of my ICT coursework some build recommendations, just wondering what's a couple of good mobos for OCing i7s? I'm looking for a really good and expensive one for the high-performance build and a less expensive one for the moderate build.
Mobos really isn't my strong point :P

best overclocking i7 motherboard hands down is the evga classified. High bclk on sub zero cooling is what it is all about.
Newegg.com - EVGA 170-BL-E762-A1 LGA 1366 Intel X58 4-WAY SLI Classified XL ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

midrange:
Newegg.com - EVGA E758-A1 3-Way SLI (x16/x16/x8) LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards
Newegg.com - ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards (mine )
or
Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-EX58-UD5 LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

Yes it is. And this is how it should be set up.

This model of the Classified is geared more for the Overclocker.
Newegg.com - EVGA E760 CLASSIFIED &#34;Overclocker&#39;s Pick&#34; 3-Way SLI &#43; PhysX 1366 Intel X58 EATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards
The model Hefe linked to is the 4-way SLI mobo.

Posting here again because it's the same coursework:
How far do you recon an i7 920 can be pushed while using a stock cooler? Assuming you have an epic mobo like the EVGA E760

I wouldn't think 3.2~3.3 would be out of the question. Depends on the ambient really.

That sounds about right, thanks And ambient I guess would be ST.

I was able to hit 3.2 at 1.1volts so a stock cooler should be able to handle that just fine. Depends a bit upon the chip as well. some just need more volts than others.
