  1. Best answer
    Since you are getting all these top end hardware you should a high end Mobo as well.
    ASUS Maximus V GENE Motherboard or the ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77 Motherboard should do it
  2. And that MOBO, P8Z77-V Deluxe?
  3. It is a good board. Like the other Asus boards listed.
  4. I would agree to the sabertooth it has a five year warranty, ways to protect your motherboard from heat and dust, built in wireless which is pretty good, a nice large amount of things on the rear i/o port. cost=$240
  5. If you wanna spend alot, get the Sabertooth z77. If you wanna spend less, get the Asrock z77. Beware all Asus boards have slower boot times.
  6. Which is better? Sabertooth z77 or P8Z77-V Deluxe
  7. I have nothing to base it on other than reviews/other users, but I would say the Sabertooth.
  8. It is rather do you need for example the extra 2 x SATA 6GB ports on the deluxe http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007627%2050001315%20600093976%20600315497&IsNodeId=1&bop=And&CompareItemList=280|13-131-821^13-131-821-TS%2C13-131-818^13-131-818-TS
    Both are great boards that allow for maximum overclock.
  9. I do not know what I get. Argh!
  10. I personally would get the Sabertooth!
  11. I have a 3770k with Corsair 16Gb and GTX 680 on a P8Z77V-Pro. Love the setup!
  12. ASrock z77 extreme 4 is a tremendous value. And overclocks like a champ.

    Corsair Professional HX850W


    EDIT: I have allot of HD's.
  15. I think I'll pick SABERTOOTH ASUS Z77.

    He has better cooling and has that protection against dust.
  16. If you go with anything more expensive than the PRO that would be the board I would get.
  17. The thing that I didn't like about the Sabertooth was that it didn't come with the onboard wifi like the pro and the deluxe do.
  18. WiFi card $15-20. then go for the PRO.

    Plus you can OC your mobo from your cell phone / bluetooth and double check voltages/fan speeds and what not.
  20. OK! That to me is a totally unnecessary feature.
  21. I was reading that this mobo is having problems with the cooler, is this true? Is happening to many people?

    The CPU cooler? I haven't had any problems at all.
