Hey y’all,

was wondering which motherboard could hold overclocking but not cost like seventeen times as much as other stuff, I’ve been lookin at the Gigabyte GA B250M DS3H Micro ATX for awhile.

yeah my asrock Z170 Gaming K4 did bclk oc prior to a certain bios update. I oc'd a 6400 to 4.7ghz on it :). Still have cpu and board, but had updated the bios at some point for my 6700k and I don't think I can go back. Either way I didn't save the bios so not sure where I'd get it now.

ran pretty cool. When u oc' via bclk you lose AVX so temps really aren't bad etc..... I just used it for CSGO and it was good. :). Wish I had another board to put that cpu in.
