Im building a new pc and first id though i go with ASUS P8Z77-V but as i have some more money to spend ill think ill go with the ASUS Sabertooth instead. Because of its Armored top with fans and seemingly good ventilation + its awesome looks.
But before i make my decision i wanted to know how well dos the heat dissipation work on this board. But so far i haven't found any tests online.
So was hoping some of you had some experience with this mobo to share.
Together with this mobo ill go with the i7-3770K and ASUS GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II
You might not be getting any responses because heat dissipation on motherboards is not really a concern unless you are getting into extreme overclocking. What, specifically, are your concerns around dissipation? What are your concerns? I have a x58 Sabertooth and love it.
With the setup you mention above and a good CPU cooler you should be fine.
the 2 main sources of heat are from the GPU/CPU. on top of that, the case choice has a heavy influence on airflow and # of fans able to be used. other minor heat generators are the ram and psu, but those are usually disregarded because they handle themselves just fine.
