Question About Intel/AMD Boards with i5 3570k

So does it matter if it's an AMD board or an intel board that I choose to be my motherboard, if my processor is the intel i5 3570k?

Do any of my other components effect weather I need to buy a Intel or AMD motherboard?

I know it's a rookie question, I just want to make sure that everything is compatible.

Also, I am going for a Z77 motherboard, with my i5 3570k, is that okay?

If you get a Intel CPU, you need an Intel based motherboard!

So, for the Intel Core i5 3570K, you need a Intel Z68 or Z77 LGA 1155 motherboard, like you listed.

Here is a site which lists all the Asus Z77 motherboard lines:

P.S. Please don't bump!

You must use Intel-based motherboards with Intel cpus and AMD-based motherboards with AMD cpus. You cannot mix and match.

A Z77 board is an excellent choice for an i5-3570K.

If you give us a budget or your other specs if you already have parts, we can recommend a specific board.

I see.
Well God help me, but I am making my own PC.
I don't have the graphics card yet, my friend said I should wait before buying the 7970, as the 670 is coming out on the 10th may.

My total budget for the PC is £900 (and seperately, for the monitor £100)

I so far have: Corsair 650W power supply - £67
i5 3570k processor - £176
Corsair 12GB 1600 MHz Dominator RAM - £75
1 TB Seagate Baracuda 7200 RPM, 6 GB/S, 64MB Cache HDD - £68
- Assuming the graphics card is £330 - for the 7970 - I found a Sapphire one cheap :D 

£184 left

- Haven't got all the parts, still need keyboard + mouse, DVD drive, cooler and any other small stuff, with the £84 left, I would mind extending £20 more or so, so I have another £100 to work with - if you could help with that too, I'd be ever so greatful, Idc what cooler to get, like liquid or normal, or even if I plan overlocking? And if I buy liquid/normal how do I know which one will keep my PC surviving and not frying in a year xD


I could spend about £100 for the Motherboard, at the most (If I have to o.o)

Edit: Also, the sites that I'm buying my components from is:

I'm advising against IB CPU's for serious overclockers, at least until the next stepping is released. ..... seen reviews where the buggers hit 80 - 90+C . See results in image here:

http://www.guru3d.com/article/core-i7-3770k-and-3750-re...

Seems to me IB / SB choice is a draw for modest overclockers and IB has a distinct advantage at stock, but 90C temps make me uncomfy when SB at 5.2 Ghz can be done in the mid 70's.

And 12 GB is a no-no..... that's a Intel 9xx config. You'll want 8GB for a gaming box, 16 GB if ya using CAD, video editing, huge databases and the like.

Hmmm, what did you mean by IB and SB? xD

And thanks for that, I will change it to 8GB.

Hmmm, what do you suggest I do for fans/optical drive/case/motherboard

Those are my only components left, + I saved £25 for making it 8GB RAM xD

IB is 3rd generation intel processor. ivy bridge. when overclocking heats up more than sb. i5 3570k iv is almost the same as the 2500k sb.
SB is 2nd generation intel processor. sandy bridge.

Hmmm, I see.

But what do the 3rd gen i5's bring to the table?

I'm sure it's not just a new name? :D 

What's the difference between the two, 2nd and 3rd, basically ^_^

If you get a Z68 or Z77 motherboard, they are Dual Channel DDR3-1600. So how do you get to 12GB? You'd need 8 (2x4GB sticks) or 16 (4x4GB sticks). 12GB would be for a Triple Channel mobo, like a X58 chipset (6x2GB or 3x4GB).

Look into a Corsair Vengance DDR3-1600 8GB kit.

Oops, sorry, missed this:

Don't spend more on the SATA III 6.0Gbps model, unless that is all they got. Hard Drives don't need, nor benefit from SATA III.
