H61 or Z77? Tags: Core Intel Build Basic Last response: May 19, 2013 11:01 AM in Motherboards Share ArcticMayhem13 May 19, 2013 9:09:11 AM I'm doing a pretty basic build (intel core i3220, amd radeon 7770, 8gb ram) and I can get an H61 mobo for like $50 or a Z77 for like $90. Which is the way to go? cause H61 is kinda old and it doesn't seem like people use it any more. More about : h61 z77 Thanatos Telos May 19, 2013 9:16:04 AM Go for either H77 or B75. The H61 is good, but some need to be updated to support Ivy Bridge. If you can, get a Haswell i3 when it comes out with a newer mobo. m 0 l thasan1 May 19, 2013 9:21:17 AM yeah go with H77 or B75. Z77 is kinda irrelevant in core i3-3220. m 0 l Related resources mATX H61 vs ATX Z77 - Non-K processor - Forum H61 vs B75 vs H77 vs Z77 - Forum Can i put a i7 2600 lga 1155 h61 on a z77? - Forum What should i choose H61 S2P or H77 or Z77 - Forum Should I get a Sabertooth z77 or an H61 + Core i5-3470? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

I think im guna get a H61 cause the one im getting says it supports ivy bridge and is an Asus, which is a reputable brand. It looks obvious that the Z series is beyond what I need. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
