hello everybody , i am planing to buy an i5 2500k and overclock it later when i get water cooling solution , and i am building a new pc rig ,with
vga => 7850 2gb oc (maybe crossfire in future )
ram => 4 gb
cpu => i5 2500k
motherboard ===> ga-z77-ds3h mb http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
what do u think of it ??
i wanted the cool features of z77 chipset but i found all of them too expensive for me till i found this on newegg if u notice that this is the cheapest z77 chipset in the market so i just want to know what do u think of it and what are its cons ??
and what do u think of this rig for hardcore gaming :)  my resolution is 1600x900

Save some money and go with Z77 or at least Z68 because B75 doesn't support overclocking which is a waste of unlocked CPU.

You can get Asrock Z77 Pro3 if Extreme4 is too expensive for you.

Why are you looking for the cheapest / lowest performing MoBo ? What is it you think you are getting w/ Z77 that you won't get on Z68 or even P67 ? Note that you are using a IB MoBo w/ a SB CPU.

I'd also suggest getting skipping the water cooling solution, which will serve no purpose on SB and investing the money saved on a better MoBo.

It's almost ironic that coolers like this are becoming available just as processors transition to designs that may ultimately render them unnecessary; even overclocked to 5GHz, an Intel Sandy Bridge 2600K doesn't need anywhere near this level of cooling.


And the 2500k runs 7-10C cooler than the 2600k at that speed due to the latter's use of hyperthreading.

if you have a local micro center they have them on sale and sometime they have combo deals with cpu.

Nice cooling solution :)  , but I was going to get the water cooling in a year from now , second I want an ivy chipset because I may buy 3570k which is better than the i5 2500k thirdly I just want a mb that supports CPU overclocking and ATI crossfirex that's all what I need from a mb , so I chose the cheapest one that can do this for me :)  and I am building a new rig and am on budget so my money is limited this time that's y I am looking for the cheapest one , on wikipedia it says that the b75 can overclock CPU so I am confused between b75 and ga-z77-d3h

Why would you buy a 2500k first then 3570k later... The difference is like $25
