So basically im building a new computer with a 3570k w/ gtx 670, 8gb ram, 256gb M4, fractal mini case n 212 evo as CPU cooler.
Gonna OC the 3570k to 4-4.2ghz and I just wonder what the differences between a Z77 V pro and a V LX would be?
I am aware of the number of esata / usb 3.0, wifi feature etc. but is there a performance difference which can justify the extra 100$ in my country?
I do not need the extra features, only it does increase the performance.
Pro supports higher frequency ram, usually negligable
Pro allows for 8x/8x crossfire/sli, V-LX only supports 16x/4x Crossfire
Pro has more 6gb/s sata ports
Pro Has a slightly updated sound card built in
Pro has more USB 3.0 slots
Pro has more fan headers and other minor trinkets
Pro is larger and has a display port
Pro has wireless lan
most important for overclockers
pro has 12 phase cpu 4 phase gpu digital power design
lx has a 4+1+1(the lx is almost essentially a low 100$ board at a higher cost)
