So pretty soon I'll be getting my custom gaming PC & I'm going with the ASRock Z77 Pro4 mobo. I don't need 2 PCI-Ex 3.0 slots as i don't go with dual gfx cards.
1.) What are the differences between ASRock Z77 Pro4 & the ASRock Z77 Extreme4 mobo?
2.) Also can someone tell me what are the advantages of having 8+4 power design like it has on the ASRock Z77 Extreme4 mobo?
3.) Why do people say ASRock boards suck & ASUS mobos are the best? Is my particular asrock z77 pro4 a bad mobo?
I am planning on OC'ing both CPU & GPU & here's my build-
MOBO- asrock z77 pro4
CPU- core i5 2500k
GPU- msi gtx 670 oc (reference heatsink fan design card)
PSU- seasonic s12ii 620W
RAM- ripjaws X Series 8gb ddr3 1600
COOLER- cm hyper 212 evo
FANS- 3 x cm 120mm Red LED Case Fan @ 2000 rpm
This 3.5-gram tube contains enough compound to cover at least 15 to 25 small CPU cores, or 6 to 10 large CPU cores, or 2 to 5 heat plates.
99.9% PURE SILVER
The Arctic Silver 5 uses three unique shapes and sizes of pure silver particles to maximize particle-to-particle contact area and thermal transfer.
The Arctic Silver 5 contains over 88% thermally conductive filler by weight. The thermally-enhanced ceramic particles including micronized silver, sub-micron zinc oxide, aluminum oxide and boron nitride particles improve the compound's performance and long-term stability.
