  1. Its not the best mobo to get, if u want to overclock your CPU.

    The power design is the limiter here.
  2. Get this one instead. It has 8+4 power design.

    For the mobo, I would recommend -> ... Latest Z77...

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

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

    Works as expected @ 4.4GHz.

    Has Premium Gold Caps

    Digi Power Design -> 8 + 4 Power Phase Design

    Supports Dual Channel DDR3 2800+(OC)

    AMD Quad CrossFireX, CrossFireX

    NVIDIA Quad SLI, SLI

    PCIE Gigabit LAN

    Supports Intel HD Graphics with Built-in Visuals

    Multi VGA Output options : DVI-D, D-Sub, HDMI


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

    Great deal for the mobo/price/quality feature set ratio.

  3. Yes but since ivybridge uses less power a 4+1+1 power design should as it can do 125w,right and i dont plan on doing any big overclock plus asus have a very good record with motherboards
  4. And i dont want other recomendations i just want to know will the board do what i want it to do and be reliable
  5. I like ASUS as #1 too. But this is a better deal.

    ASUS has priced the Z77 $20+ too high.

    More phases u have, the better OC results u get and the stability is better as well.

    Since u have the "K" CPU, it deserves decent mobo too. And u want a lot from it.

    Hopefully u get better PSU, than the mobo. In your case, it will be important.
  6. Thanks
  7. BTW, whats the PSU and the GPU?

    And u are getting an aftermarket cooler, right?
  8. I just noticed that it is @ $129.99 after mail-in rebate card.

    Not bad deal at this price at all.
  9. I'm on the same ship. I want to try asus and I plan on mid OC of my 3570K.

    Have a look at p8z77-v LE, as that would propably cut the deal (8+2 PP) but not so sure about SLI.
    I won't be going SLI so I'll be getting the LE version I think
  10. Gpu is 7850 and psu is corsair gs 800w i play on upgrading gpu later and maybe going sli or crossfire
  11. Ive already bought the build and im just waiting for parts to arrive i have a h60 heatsink so i should still be able to oc to 4.2 even with pp design right?
  12. I just want a reliable board able to do a light oc and asus should be able to do that as they have good rep right
  13. Yes, it should be fine and quiet build.
