- These days overclocking is more limited by your CPU + cooling than the motherboard.
Great Thanks man! you really cleared up the whole 1366/1156 processor confusion for me because I knew they both had i7 and thats what made it so confusing. Looks like the EVGA x58 is for me then. Thanks again.

Okay, Thanks mate. I have plenty of time because I am still saving up for the components lol. Any ideas on when the SATA6/USB3 Chipset will be coming out (An estimate would be enough ) Thanks.
