Posted this on the wrong thread so you might see this(similar) again.
Which of the following for my file server?the current mobo(biostar h61mgv is already giving me problems like not starting up properly,like on for a second then off.so i have now a list of mobo to replace that.I want z77/68 as i want to underclock them.coz doing casual virtualization on that machine too.
P8Z77-V LX 209$ SGD
P8Z77-V LK 229$ SGD
GA-Z77-D3H 199$ SGD
Z77 Pro 3 Gen 3 159$ SGD
Z77 Extreme 3 199$ SGD
Z77 Extreme 4 219$ SGD
TZ77XE4 225$ SGD
TZ68K+ 158$ SGD
I do not want micro atx as in the future i am probably getting a RAID card.
Thanks in advance.
They also overheat in my room when beyond 2.2ghz most of the time(G645 i borrowed).i just need to to not give me problems.i think a Gigabyte Sniper M3 is great as my place sell same price as the Z77X-UD3H.I also do light virtualization there so i dont want the processor and mobo to fry.(237$)and i really see no point of downgrading a processor.Not all because of overheating,also to add stability and save that so meagre to even count electricity.(this server will be decomissioned soon and given to my cousin soon.he has 3570k collecting dust so yeah i get a z77).
overheating is 75+c. i highly doubt you can run your rig in a furnace room
there is no reason to underclock. underclocking doesnt always mean stability. it can mean the opposite
I thought that is for undervolting?not underclock afaik.
Now i do not know to get the sniper m3 , the asus p8z77-v lk, the asrock extreme 4-m or asus p8z77-m.i am getting one of these 4,but also get a cooler then.which is best?is the hyper101 ok?i am not really using a furnace,but living on the top floor (12)really explain it.
that isnt. it still doesnt explain your reasoning to underclock. your h61 board wouldnt even work with his 3570k if the bios has not been updated. even if it was, he is restricted to running at stock speed, which defeats the purpose of the k chip
But the asus board on newegg have many reviews saying the sata 6Gbps ports dont work(btw the place i am gonna buy is sim lim which is very hard to replace if defect),so should i still get that or the gigabyte ones?
