Will I7 2600K X68 fit ASUS P8Z77-V-Pro Mo-Bo

TO Nikorr & guys,

I had discussion before regarding MO-Bo's for my I7 2600K
After some reading & advise here i decided to get ASUS Saberbooth Z77


My friend im getting the Chipset from said he's having I7 2600K X68.
First i didnt know there was an X68 ( thought it was Z68)
Or i think if i was totally wrong and sorry for the ignorance....

Also with features on Asus SABERTOOTH-Z77 ($260) & P8Z77-V-Pro ($229) ( Prices are here in Sydney where im gonna get the parts from )

If im not wrong again - Saberbooth doesnt have the onboard Wi-Fi feature which is helpful for me
If thats the case my final decision would be P8Z77-V-Pro....

If im confusing myself and you too " My question is : Will I7 2600K X68 work fit ASUS P8Z77-V-Pro Mo-Bo "

****

I have the rest of the parts

Patriot Viper 2 6GB (2GB X 3) DDR# 1600 ( Intel 1366PIN only )
HIS 1GB 5770 PCI-E VGA Card
Seasonic S12II-520W -PSU
Case : Coolermaster HAF932

this Rig's old Mo-Bo Gigabyte X58A UD3R is faulty - nd in process of replacement - takes 2 months he says as they are decommisioned

More details are on thred "Urgent suggestion needed for Mo-Bo "

*******


Thnx for reading
Any reply is greatly helpful ( even suggestions that "i should do more research will do " )

More about will 2600k asus p8z77
  1. OK lets clear few things up : )

    There is no X68, only Z68.
  2. Can u post a link to your RAM?

    Not all is compatible with 2600K.

    More than 1.5V is voiding the CPU warranty.
  3. Correct, Saberbooth doesnt have the onboard Wi-Fi feature.

    P8Z77-V PRO has ASUS Wi-Fi GO!

    - Wi-Fi GO! Function: DLNA Media Hub, Smart Motion Control, Remote Desktop, Remote Keyboard & Mouse, File Transfer, Capture & Send *8
    - Wi-Fi GO! Remote for portable Smartphone/Tablet, supporting iOS & Android systems
    - Wi-Fi Engine for network sharing and connection: Client Mode, AP Mode
  4. It will fit, no question about that.

    The 2600K and P8Z77-V PRO are perfect mach!
  5. I would suggest to get an after market CPU cooler,

    so u can OC to get 4.5GHz with ease : )

    COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus RR-B10-212P-G1 "Heatpipe Direct Contact" Long Life Sleeve 120mm CPU Cooler
  6. Bful, thnx - P8Z77-V PRO it is then - about RAM i have
    Patriot Viper 2 6GB (2GB X 3) DDR3 1600 ( Intel 1366PIN only )
    so im guessing it wont FIT ???
    I already have the after market beast cooler "Noctua NHD14"
  7. Provide link to the RAM or the RAM serial #.

    it is not enough to post only that -> Patriot Viper 2 6GB (2GB X 3) DDR3 1600

    If u don't know, find the exact model here.

    If that's the one, as fpoon posted, that one will fit, but since it is @ 1.65V, it voids the CPU warranty.

    U can get a new one like this.


    I recommend CORSAIR Vengeance 99% of the time, quality RAM and low profile with XMP profile. And if u will get an aftermarket CPU cooler, low profile is the worry free remedy with perfect fit with any large cooler.
    CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233196
    Vengeance Low Profile heat spreaders have a reduced height of 1.03" (26.25mm). They're designed for high-performance systems with extra-large CPU coolers, small form factor system builds, or any other space-constrained application where standard Vengeance memory might not fit.
  10. He could try to run it at a lower voltage and speed.
  11. Or that ^, but I would get more RAM and in this case it means more likely new RAM : )
  12. Thnx for the suggestions, i did fond out from my invoice a serial number or such for my current RAM -

    Patriot Viper2 6GB Kit (2G X ) " PV736G1600ELK " DDR3 1600

    http://patriotmemory.com/products/detailp.jsp?prodline=5&catid=34&prodgroupid=197&id=968&type=1

    Hope this helps !!!

    And also yes - i have a "Noctua NHD-14 " CPU cooler - its beast of size cooler - and not sure if i could fit with the Mo-Bo "P8Z77-V PRO" and my current RAM - as the Mo-Bo heat sinks around the CPU looks like my cooler is going to have issues...

    Either way can i use my RAM though mentioned above - as i might have to wait a month again if new RAM - ( have to wait to get PAID !!! :(((

    Yep alluri,

    That's the one @ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820220503


    Its 1.65V and I don't think it will fit. At least not the first one.

  14. Pfffff ! Aight then

    Looks like new RAM too then - My old board had a tight fit aswell - what i did for the first one is I raised the FAN up a little bit so the first RAM can FIT.

    What im worried is about the fact u mentioned that 1.65V is gonna VOID the warranty ! so i probably have to look into that ?? or if i can somehow lower it untill i get the NEW RAM.

    If not im gonna have to look get those CORSAIR Vengeance RAM u mentioned - looks good and fits with no issues - ( initially thought of G-SKILL Ripjaw - but may be both are the same )

    Can wait to finish this RIG

    ill use those old RAM - Mo-Bo to rebuild by old RIG and have both of them lighting my room

    Hey if i decide to go for a different CPU case for my new RIG ( initially i thought of Coolermaster Cosmos 2 ) but getting pulled over those DANGER DEN "see through glass kind of cases " what do u think of a new case ? its kind of diff and looks good in my room..
  15. Its just $54.99 for 8GB. You can set the RAM in the BIOS to 1.5V

    This is only 6GB what u got : )
  16. Looks great. I am thinking about that one too.
  17. And this one. I want this kind set up for the HDD/SSD.

  18. Yap its good - fantastic design - probably will wait out for a month or so and get it ( cosmos II ) and yap will get the RAM too this week - thnx for all the replies -

    Ur Awesomness is always appreciated
