Im looking at 2 different motherboards... ASRock Z77 Pro4 - $109.99 http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml... and ASRock Z77 Extreme 4 - $134.99 So a $30 Difference. The main difference in performance is Pro4= 4+2 Power Phase; Extreme4= 8+2 Power Phase Is the Extreme4 worth it or no?

I have a board with only 4+2 myself and I wish I had gotten one with a better power design. More phases = more stable power delivery. dudewitbow a b K Overclocking July 17, 2012 8:03:06 PM if your dead on in overclocking to a great extent, the extra power phases will help(the extreme4 will also allot 8x/8x crossfire/sli if you ever plan to) Related resources 4+1 Power Phase on Minor-ish Overclock - Forum What is best OC'ing MoBo with at least 8- phase power - Forum 3+2 power phase vs 4+2 power phase - Forum Mobo for 3570k; power phase design? - Forum Explain 16+2 power phase vs. 8+2 - Forum Can't find your answer ?
