ASUS P8H77-V LE or ASRock Z77 Extreme 4

Have your say. Would this be any good? I intend to overclock a little... Would this girl handle it?

Alternatively, I need to choose a mobo from this list (sorry about the native language, should be browsable), preferably under 100€, to pair with a 3570k or a 2500k, depending on the budget I have left...

  1. I say get a 2500k, and use the extra money left over to get a slightly better MB. Here's one that I know and can recommend:
    GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-D3H - Socket 1155 - Chipset Z77 - ATX
  2. That's a little too much, I'd have to give it some deep consideration... I know the choice isn't much, and mobos aren't something you should skimp on, but could you take a look at some others there?

    BTW: I have store credit there, which is why my choice is limited.

    If I could hypothetically get this board with the 3570k how would my overclocking go?

    I think its great.

    U can definitely use this one -> ASRock Z77 Extreme 4 -> ... Latest Z77...

    I just build PC with this mobo and I like the BIOS, its looks like this.

    Works as expected @ 4.4GHz

    That is a great mobo choice for the CPU. It has good power design for OC.

    It is always great to wrap up a review on a positive note, when all you can think of is which advantages to highlight again. This is exactly how we feel now that the review of ASRock Z77 Extreme4 and ASRock Z77 Extreme6 has been completed. However, each of these boards has its unique peculiarities, which we would like to point out once again.

    While ASRock Z77 Extreme6 has everything a contemporary high-end mainboard must have, it also stands out due to a number of unique features. First of all, it is a floppy drive connector and support for the mini-PCI Express cards, but we could also mention additional retention holes around the processor socket, two connectors for CPU fans and combined SATA and eSATA ports. ASRock Z77 Extreme4 mainboard is a little smaller than the Extreme6 model and has slightly simpler design, but it retains all the basic functionality of its elder sister. We can clearly see that the manufacturer made special effort to lower the cost of this product by giving up some of the optional features, but didn’t sacrifice any of the essential functionality. Both these mainboards are high-quality products with very well thought-through design and extensive functionality including convenient BIOS with everything necessary for system fine-tuning and overclocking.
  6. Nikkor, I too have the Extreme4. Have you tried the 1.90 BIOS update yet? Mine came with 1.30, which is what I am running. I had read where 1.70 gave someone an issue with the GTX560Ti video card when I ordered my MB. I had also ordered that same video card. By the time I received my MB, ASRock had pulled 1.70 and replaced with with 1.80. I thought great, so I installed it (couldn't get the flash to work, so used the windows installer). What I found with 1.80 and the GTX560Ti was, I could not complete the WEI with the processor OC'd to anything higher than 4.2Ghz. I went back to 1.30 (I've read where 1.40 is great as well), and was back to having no issues with anything with a OC setting to 4.6 GHz, with my i7-2600k. I haven't tried higher than that.

    I see some interesting description comments to the 1.90 BIOS, but I'm not sure what they pertain too.

    BTW, I also have on the way, this P8H77-V MB. I needed to upgrade the CPU in one of my boys computers and with the current special on this board and the i3-2120, it was too hard to pass up, regardless of no overclocking, which that CPU doesn't allow anyways.

    Performance wise, I find the Extreme4 to be right on par with the Sabertooth Z77. I have both, each running the i7-2600K.
  7. To everyone wondering I decided to save up some cash and got a Z77X-UD5H, a beast of a board.
