Proud owner of a P67 Sabertooth ( again thanks Zack for answering all those questions in the comment thread) and I have to say other than sleep issues ( why cant they get a working sleep bios for me IDK) been a solid board OC's nicely but since it is a P67 fsb overclocking isnt going to be your main concern.
I like the Vengenace LP 4x4gb kits myself just because I like LP ram.
I ran a set of Blacklines 2x4gb 1600 for awhile and they clocked alright in this board.

Oh Lord. My wife is going to murder me...

Pulled the trigger on an i5 2500k, P67 Sabertooth mobo, and 2x4GB RIPJAWS 12800 DDR3 from DirectCanada. Yay free shipping and one tax! Fair warning to all who looked at my price check thread--a Q9550, 780i and 4GB of Mushkin RAM will soon be coming up for sale... :)

My System Specs

Default An update

Just wanted to pass on my thanks to all of you that helped me with my decision. I put together my new rig late last week, and then had to rip it apart again today, when I received my new Coolermaster Hyper Plus 212; I had been hoping that my Xigmatek S1283 with Thermalright backplate would fit, but no such luck. Anyway, thanks again to all, and here are some pics of the build--first with the stock cooler, then with the Coolermaster on and everything back in the case.






My only complaint is that the Coolermaster runs a touch warmer than I would like it to (about 55 at load), but it does reduce the fan RPM for the sake of noise. We'll see what happens when I OC.
