Hello, I am wondering if this motherboard is good for my first build. I plan to overclock my i5 3570K to about 4.2 Ghz. I am new and want to know if this board is reliable and easy to navigate the UEFI. Also, can I use a SDD and HDD with this board ?
Awesome motherboard, great value. I've worked on two 3570Ks on that exact board. You WILL need a quality aftermarket CPU cooler. And you will need to tinker with the CPU voltage, if you leave it on auto it will set the voltage higher then necessary and will result in excessive borderline unsafe heat. Set it to auto, see what voltage it gives you, and then take it down .025v at a time until it is unstable. Then just bump it back up +.025 and you have yourself the sweetspot. (Should be between 1.15v-1.225v)
