    Edit: That is just an example above. You could also get a good quality board from ebay that would keep in your budget
    Got the motherboard now and its working fine. So I must have broken the other motherboard some how by changing that setting.

    I will upgrade to an i7 and an Asus Maximus VII Ranger/Extreme/Hero


    Thank you so much for your help, Even though I didn't get the problem solved you still tried .

    Thanks WhyMe.

    Nice result for you.

    Yup. Those Asus Z97s you listed are very good, solid boards. They can take about anything you can throw at them. You'll be able to tweak and overclock 'til your heart's content if you get one of them.

    I doubt that you broke the board just by playing with that setting. You'll never know.

    If you're getting a new CPU and board, and don't mind buying DDR4 RAM as well, get a Socket 1151 board. That will delay obsolescence for it by a few months.

    Best of luck. Keep in mind, if you choose to overclock, using offset can pay dividends in overclocking while reducing heat, however (as you undoubtedly learnt), if the existing offset is reasonably large, switching from positive to negative or vice a versa can make a massive difference in voltages across the board. I doubt if it directly screwed up your board, but might have been the straw that broke the camel's back.
