Solved EVGA E770 vs. E762 for overclocking i7 950 Tags: Motherboards Evga Intel i7 Overclocking Last response: January 26, 2011 2:05 PM in Overclocking Share drshim82 January 17, 2011 9:00:17 PM Hi Guys, I have i7 950 and planing to ocing 4.2 with air cooling or higher with water cooling. I'm looking for new mobo and I was looking at ASUS R3E or EVGA E770. After reading many reviews, I decided to go with EVGA. But now, I'm stuck with E770 or E762. I don't need 4-Way SLI. However, I found that E762 is $70 cheaper ($280 after $100 rebate) than E770 ($350 after $20 rebate). I like SATA 6G and USB3.0 features of E770 but are they worth to pay $70 more for? I have i7 920 sitting in the box and trying to put this back into my current mobo and give to someone. So, I need new mobo but can't decide which one should I go with. I'm also planning to get second GTX 460 for SLI and water cooling my pc. Please help. lol My current system is HAF X i7 950 @ 4.0GHz with Venomous-X Black X58A UD3R Rev. 2.0 EVGA GTX 460 SC EE Corsair Dominator 6GB Corsair 850W PSU Thanks in advance More about : evga e770 e762 overclocking 950 | E-mail me updates | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Best solution 55Range January 18, 2011 4:09:48 PM Well that depends on you, if you want usb 3.0, but thats quite a difference in price.
