My custom computer is having problems and I narrowed it down to the motherboard. :cry:  It is under wannanty, but I can't wait for RMA and such so I need to buy a new one.

***Please recommend a good motherboard for me. Thank you.***

Here is what I have:
-Intel Core i7-2600K Processor
-Corsair Memory Vengeance 16 Quad Channel Kit DDR3 1600 MHz 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM (4 equalling=16GB)
-Crucial 128 GB m4 2.5-Inch Solid State Drive SATA 6Gb/s
-Cross Fire: ATI Radeon HD 5800

Right now with the 2 video cards in the 2 PCIE slots, it is a very tight fit to plug in my SATA cables so a different placement for the SATA ports not under the video cards would be nice.

The ASRock Z77 Extreme4 is an outstanding board for the price right now. But since ou are looking to run Xfire with two HD 5800 I don't know if I wouldn't look to stepping up a little more robust board like the Asus P8Z77-V or the Asus P8Z77-V Pro. I think it will come down to your budget and if you are overclocking the Intel® Core™ i7-2600K and for how much you are trying to overclock it.
