  1. Well, u need to tell us what CPU model do u have!?
  2. Best answer
    If it is 1155 socket, this one.


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

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

    Works as expected @ 4.4GHz



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

  3. what intel cpu?
    if its an ivy bridge "K" series than a Z77, Z75 is fine
    if its a sandy bridge "K" series than a Z77, Z75 or Z68 is fine

    if its not a "K" series then a H77, B75 or H67 for a sandy bridge or H77 or B75 for an ivy bridge.
