just wondering which is the best MB for overclocking a 3750k to about ~4GHz.
my build is: i5-3750k Zotac GTX 650 Ti Corsair Vengeance Black PC12800 8gb (2x4gb) PSU Corsair VS550W
so here's the pros and cons of each MB in my perspective:
pro 3: + ATX form factor - 4+1 power phase
pro 4-m: + 4+2 power phase - mATX form factor (which in some reviews, i read that the PCIe 3.0 slot is too close to the HD audio port, so if i managed to install a VGA on it, i can't properly use the HD audio port, vice versa)
i dont care about SLI/Crossfire thing, since i wont use that any kind of feature.
tangled to a ~700$ budget, i wasted a big slice of my budget to the processor,VGA,and LCD (~450$), because this's gonna be a gaming rig. after adding PSU,casing,and RAM, leaving a ~130$ space for a choice of Z77 motherboard.
is the power phase gonna make a difference in performance and lifespan?
is there any other option available in the ~130$ range?
answer will be very appriaciated, review of overclocking on both MB also can help
PS: sorry for my bad english
ASRock Z77 Extreme 4.
Not much point in getting a 3570k if you're only going to overclock to 4 GHz.
