Hey, guys (again ),
and I need some help deciding on which mobo to get.
First of all here are my specs:
-Intel Core i5 2500k
-CORSAIR XMS 8GB 1600 (going to get this)
-XFX Radeon HD 6870 Double Dissipation
-OCZ ZS Series 550w (I read some good reviews on it, so I got it)
-Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus
Here are my options of motherboards:
-ASRock Z68 Extreme3/Gen3 (save some money)
-ASUS P8P67 Pro or Evo
-ASUS P8Z68-V/Gen3 (no Pro)
-ASRock Z68 Extreme4/Gen3
-ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z
I'm leaning to the Gene-Z because:
1. ASUS is a good brand.
2. It's a ROG mobo.
3. It looks cool with my HAF 922 and in general .
Full-size board features and capability packed into a much smaller footprint
Excellent overclocking options
Mature BIOS ensures easy setup for near every configuration
Low power consumption
Lucid Virtu support
Fantastic accessory package.
Near the best "Out-of-the-Box" performance we've seen so far
