Hey all,

Here is what I have:

  • G.SKILL Sniper 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory
  • Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor
  • EVGA 012-P3-1472-AR GeForce GTX 470 (Fermi) SuperClocked 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP
  • CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V v2.2 SLI
  • ASUS SABERTOOTH P67 LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

    Also have this memory:
  • G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory


    Basically, my Asus Sabertooth P72 does not have the B3 revision and is starting to be buggy. Time to get a new mobo.

    Does anyone have any suggestions before I go out and try new products?

    Any help appreciated! ;)

    My ASRock Extreme 6 arrives on Monday. Looked like the sweet spot for what I needed, though I'm sure the Extreme 4 would be enough for most. I've heard good things about Gigabyte's Z77 boards as well.

    I was looking at the extreme 6 when I saw the extreme 7.

    Z77 sabertooth is a good board if its in your price range. ASRock has some nice choices as well
