So I am looking for a mobo for my new build that I buying in the next few weeks. I am having a very hard time deciding which one to get because lets be honest there is a million options.

I am looking for z77 because I will be running a 3570k. 4 ram slots ddr3 because I will be running 1600 G skill 16Gb.
I am looking for usb 3.0 and 2 3.0 PCI-E lanes. I want to also run 2 GTX 670 Ftws in sli I am looking for a full atx mobo because I want as much room as possible between the cards for max air flow for low GPU temps. I need no less then 4 sata3 6.0/GBs ports because I will be running a SSD boot drive 2 500GBs in raid 0. I will be Over clocking my CPU to 4.5 GHZ as well so any features the mobo has to help with that would be amazing. Thanks for your input I appreciate everything the Tom's Hardware community does to help me with my computer questions. :)

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.

I looked at this one I do like it. How much room do you have between the first PCI-E and the second? I'm thinking either this one a asus z77 pro or sabertooth they are all in different price brackets I know lol but they all fit my needs. I guess it really comes down to if the price differences are worth it. Thanks for the reply!
