  1. Return it.
  2. Get this one instead. Great mobo with great OC capability due to its power design.

    For the 2700K u don't need Z77, Z68 is just fine.

    PCIE3.0, BT GO!,USB3.0 Boost, Intel LAN support

    Hmm but what if i want to upgrade to ivy bridge in the future
  4. There is no sense to upgrade to IB from SB.

    For 15% extra power?

    Maybe Haswell is the answer, but even that would give u maybe some 30% extra.

    Unless u do games only, even 2500K would do fine for u.

    And u can use IB with this mobo too, all u have to do upgrade your BIOS, that's all.
  5. BTW, do u have that 2700K?

    Not yet but before you tell me to gettin an i5 I do do (ahahah) editing and render videos
  7. Get 2600K, because when u OC, there is no difference.
