I recommend the asrock extreme 4 or msi thunderbolt z77a-G45 (newegg links aren't working today). jthill909 January 24, 2013 1:08:25 PM I have a z77 extreme 4 and it's pretty good. I really like the UEFI bios and the board got me up to a 4.4ghz overclock on my 3570k. Can't really complain.

As for SLI, unless you are gaming on three monitors, I always recommend the single fastest gpu you can afford. J_E_D_70 a b V Motherboard January 24, 2013 2:33:14 PM I'd recommend getting a 3570K instead of the 2500K - lower power, more IPC, PCI3.0 (might matter down the line). lchrisk January 24, 2013 2:44:19 PM Get i5-3570k, and a Gigabyte U3H Extreme 4 is not a good motherboard. It's a 4+1, they lied about 8+4 J_E_D_70 a b V Motherboard January 24, 2013 2:59:36 PM I can't speak to the 4+1 or 8+4 and "good" is really subjective. I love my Extreme4 and am sold on ASRock unless something goes very wrong in the coming years. Even if it's 4+1, I got mine to 4.4GHz on auto voltage rock stable. Good enough for me and it's the right price. Goodeggray January 24, 2013 3:14:08 PM If you must have the 2500 you don't need a Z77 mobo. AZ68 will do and there are lots of deals on them. Giving you more money for the gpu. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources: ForumOverclock i5 2500k . Z77 extreme 4 Forum2500k - Z77 Freezing Forum2500k & Z68 or 3570k & Z77 ?
