If the Price is right I think I would honestly give an ASRock a try.

I'm confused with the "LGA 1155" name. That's before 1156, so will these be low budget motherboards? Looks like from the pictures they are mid range to high performance grade which is confusing.

It's like all the companies decide to switch up their product numbers to confuse everyone so they impulse buy everything out of confusion! It's all a conspiracy!!

I dont get how one board would differ from another if these chips are bus locked and you would need a K series processor to overclock. But I could be mistaken

well, it seems that lga2011(?) is a longer ways off so its a proper way to milk the customer while having him wait. now, if you have 1366, will you go down to p67 just to get the new k chips and drop some mad clocks?

@Polygon
Pin count on a cpu socket should never ever been an indicator for performance. If they started naming the new high end quads on this platform core i6, then we would have a conspiracy.
