just wondering which is the best MB for overclocking a 3750k to about ~4GHz.
my build is:
Zotac GTX 650 Ti
Corsair Vengeance Black PC12800 8gb (2x4gb)
PSU Corsair VS550W
so here's the pros and cons of each MB in my perspective:
+ ATX form factor
- 4+1 power phase
+ 4+2 power phase
- mATX form factor (which in some reviews, i read that the PCIe 3.0 slot is too close to the HD audio port, so if i managed to install a VGA on it, i can't properly use the HD audio port, vice versa)
i dont care about SLI/Crossfire thing, since i wont use that any kind of feature.
tangled to a ~700$ budget, i wasted a big slice of my budget to the processor,VGA,and LCD (~450$), because this's gonna be a gaming rig. after adding PSU,casing,and RAM, leaving a ~130$ space for a choice of Z77 motherboard.
is the power phase gonna make a difference in performance and lifespan?
is there any other option available in the ~130$ range?
answer will be very appriaciated,
review of overclocking on both MB also can help
