Sabertooth z77 good for overclocking???(i7-3770K) Tags: Motherboards Overclocking Sabertooth Intel i7 Product Last response: February 23, 2013 9:54 PM in Motherboards Share HBchevelle68 February 21, 2013 3:42:52 PM Hi all, I just bought the Sabertooth z77 late last night, got it for 10 buck off from newegg. I have a i7-3770K Question i have for you is it a good MOBO for OC'ing? I read it doesn't have the auto tune feature that other asus models do. Should I cancel the order and get a different board? I don't want to spend more that what the sabertooth cost, I am new so any help would be great! Thanks!

Im new to OC'ing any advice would help! wiggbot February 21, 2013 5:15:42 PM Auto tune is oftentimes an afterthought and not a good means of overclocking. You'll be able to manually overclock it quite easily. Just ensure you've got a cooler to handle the extra heat.

I set my ram to XMP instead of auto and you can easily overclock in BIOS. Well GHz wise I am not really sure, I just picked up my i7-3770K from Micro Center today. I would at least like to get it to 4.2 but I am limited by my cooler. I bought this cooler on sale for 45 out the door: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835106150 And I was think about getting this ram: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231455 I m a Computer Science major and my school requires us to work with the engineers (since were both in the college of engineering) and so I run MatLab, Solid Works and other pretty heavy programs that are made by me and my CS team. Let me know watcha think! Thanks! Can't find your answer ? Ask !
