What do ye think of the p8z77-v lk it has a 4+1+1 power phase design http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/P8Z7...
I plan on maybe doing crossfire on the board and light oc to4.2ghz on i5 3570k

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

The power design is the limiter here.

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.

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

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.

I just noticed that it is @ $129.99 after mail-in rebate card.

Not bad deal at this price at all.

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

Gpu is 7850 and psu is corsair gs 800w i play on upgrading gpu later and maybe going sli or crossfire

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?
July 3, 2012 7:47:27 PM

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
