I've tried to run with the best performance at the best overall value equipment on my rig. Here are the mobo's I'm considering an upgrade to and would appreciate input from all...

Gigabyte Z77X-UP7
ASUS P8Z77-V Deluxe
ASRock Z77Extreme9
MSI Z77 MPOWER

Are there any that I left out that are High End Z77 LGA1155 Mobo's - with Wifi and Bluetooth is prefered.

and a blue and black color theme is prefered to go with my blue and black themed lighting, ect... for my machine...
I know, not performance related, but if here is a tie or extremely minor difference, the color wins :-)

Please provide your comments and suggestions...

Those all seem like extreme overkill.

This is still a very good board minus the extreme and unnecessary power phases in the UP7 unless you plan on competitively overclocking or something.

Plus it has Thunderbolt ports, and a WiFi card included.

You could even go with a good mid to high end board with wifi the

If you are trying to buy a board to impress people I would go with the UP7.

Other than that once the cost of the board goes over 250 you aren't going to use those features unless you are a serious enthusiast.

Its just a waste especially since you could buy the newest Intel CPU Haswell in June and ditch(recycle) the computer you are building now for the newest and latest components.

I would go with the Asus Deluxe.

Thanks, Sounds like sound advice. I've had some issues with my Z68 and i2700k due to 2 water cooler failures. My machine has been down for over a month so I don't want to wait until June. Have a new i7 3770k on the way and need a board for it that will last until my next urge to update...
