    I saw that one, but I am a little concerned with the fact that it has 117 one egg reviews. Out of curiosity any reason as to why that board in particular?

    Thanks!
  2. Well any board has negative costumer reviews by doa or other stuff, keep in mind it's the most popular board so it will get more reviews, you should take those with a grain of salt.
    The asrock z77 extreme 4 is a good motherboard with plenty of features(SLI/Crossfire), 4 SATA III ports, the audio onboard(ALC898), it has 8 power phases, overall a good motherboard for the money, and the most popular one.

    Would you say it is pretty decent for overclocking?

    Thanks for all your help! Really appreciate it
  4. I have not been back with intel for long but I am really happy with my 2013 build I have a i5 3570K with a Asus Z77 Sabertooth and it has been working very good for me.
