Mother Board Help?

Hello there.
I have had an issue recently with my build. I am planning to run SLI Asus 770's, yet my motherboard (Asus p8z77v-lx) does not support SLI, So I am looking for motherboards.

The thing is, I have a third generation i5 3570k CPU, so not many motherboards are being made for them at the moment.

So, any help?

(Remember: The motherboard has to be compatible with SLI, 15 3570k and Asus preferably or MSI. On my budget is the maximum of £120)

    None are available from Asus or MSI for that price: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/parts/motherboard/#l=2&c=52&sort=a7

    However, this is what I'd recommend if you're ready to get an AsRock board instead: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/asrock-motherboard-z77extreme4

    EDIT: Correcting myself, you can actually get an MSI board for £90: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/msi-motherboard-z68ag45b3

    The thing is, does this have the updated bios and all the drivers that a z77 mpower military class will have? And the thing is It dosent have to be Atx, it can be Micro too. Also The budget is £150, I made a mistake.
  3. Yes, it should have them. This is the list of all SLI motherboards compatible with your system available in the UK: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/parts/motherboard/#l=2&s=14&sort=a7

    You should be fine with any of those boards if you're not doing some extreme overclocking.

    I'm only overclocking to 4.5GHz (H100i) so I guess I am fine, Thanks!
  5. No problem :)
