Hi,

I'm slowly but surely narrowing down my build. Im going to use a Intel Core i7-4770K and eventually use two gtx 780's (one for now).

I like the pro mobo because it has wifi and bluetooth. I would like to do a bit of over clocking and SLI in the future. Can anyone give me some details on these two boards because im having a hard time deciding which to get. Thanks a bunch!

Both are good mobos, and either will prob fit your needs, or just a few dollars up from the Pro is the Hero, that's what I ended up picking over the Sabertooth, can't say anything bad about it

I like the PRO as well. Sabertooth has the looks though and you are paying for those, they should overclock similarly.

The sabertooth has all that cooling stuff (so they say). just curious if anyone has one of these with a Intel Core i7-4770K and gtx 780 setup

As the only board on the market, over 90% of overclockers get by with out it.

I have the Asus Z77 Sabertooth board and can say I really like it. I no reason to upgrade to fourth gen any time soon so I have not used the Z87 Sabertooth but it should be a really great board.

I decided to go with the Sabertooth, it has a lot more features for the extra 30 bucks.... And it looks badass, lol
