I'm going to be building a new computer soon and I've decided on everything (maybe), except the motherboard. Here is my build:
cooler master haf x blue
prolimatech super mega with san ace 9g1212h101 fan
gtx 670 (maybe ti)
8gb g. skill 1600mhz cl9 1.35v ripjaws x(blue, or I'll get the red one if I get the gene/formula)
mushkin enhanced chronos 120gb
windows 7 home premium 64 bit
xonar dx if I get the p8z77-v pro
All of the boards have the features that I need, and I'll be doing a 4.3-4.7ghz overclock. Which would be best for overclocking? Would the difference between the motherboards be the maximum overclock or the voltage required for a certain overclock, or both? Or should I wait for the maximus v formula?
If you have any suggestions for my build, please give those also.
So why do you think p67 isn't as good as z77 for ivy bridge? Why do you reccomend z68 over p67 for sandy bridge when the only difference is integrated graphics support and ssd caching? I see no reason that the p8p67 deluxe wouldn't be better than the p8z77-v pro for ivy bridge. Also, ivy bridge is better than sandy bridge at the same temperature, with the same cooler at the same speed, with the average 3570k and the average 2500k, the 3570k would be better. The 2500k might be able to reach higher clock speeds, but the 3570k performs better clock for clock, and with lower power consumption. Also, the p8z77-v deluxe and p8p67 deluxe have the same amount of phases (not including integrated graphics phases).
