Need a mobo for my phenom x6 1055T which will be overclocked to around 4Ghz 3.5~6Ghz only!!

1)Asus M5A97 PRO or EVO--->8.5k due to availability issue whichever is available will cos 8.5k........
2)Gigabyte 970A-UD3--->6.2-6.5k

Bugdet is max 8.5k!

Is CoolerMaster V6GT a good option to overclock my procy to 4Ghz ........
leaving for now!!

V6gt is a good cooler. I read in a review that installing it is a difficult task and it is quite heavy. CM Hyper 212 evo is a good and cheaper alternative. It will fulfill your OCing needs.

IMO, go for the Gigabyte board because it has a notably better onboard audio chip. Of course this doesn't matter if you already have a good sound card.

970A-UD3. and thermalright ultra 120 Extreme rev C.(if u can get rev A that wud be the best) < Lap it & pair it with a high CFM Delta 120mm fan and you're set for 4.1 - 4.2GHz on ur 1055T..

1055T needs a little more Vcc to reach same clocks as 1090 or 1100 so good cooler is imp..

If you can increase the budget of cooler then will suggest SVGTech HOC20 for 5K. For mobo dont use Asus, so personally will suggest the Gigabyte Mobo....

I think u cud reconsider ur cooler requirements... ur already on 3.5GHz... even if u get an N620 you will only reach 3.7 to 3.9GHz... is investing 2k worth the 300-400MHz??

if anything u cud invest some on a good psu...

P.S. What are you going to do with the 890GXM?!

Technically speaking Asus one is way better than Gigabyte. I don't understand on what basis people voted that Giga board. Only because of one of the distributor of Asus?

@d6bmg -

1. You don't have to deal with that vDroop sh!t in the Gigabyte boards.. voltage is stable under load!.. (atleast in my board it is.. :p)

2. Better layout of PCIe & SATA.

3. Higher VRM count > 8+2 Phase vs 6+2 Phase on Asus

4. Proper blue screen BIOS. Asus has BIOS for kids with mouse support! :p
(I just dont get that UEFI thingy... sry!!)
