  1. What do you think your choice would be with a GTX 680 and Ivy Bridge 3570k? ASrock Extreme6?

    Asrock Z77 extreme4 for me.

    Interesting. Thanks.
  4. The Z77 Extreme4 is $50 more! :o

    Also, are the B75, H77, and B65 overclockable? Are they worth it?

    Thanks for posting this, by the way. But man... that's a pretty hefty price for just PCI 3.0

    EDIT: Also, interestingly enough, there are WAY more USB 3.0 ports on these.
    EDIT2: Last thing. All of the useful combo deals are for the Extreme4 and an SSD. Just throwing that out there.

    ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

    Z77/Z75 boards are overclockable,and I believe B75 boards are also but don't quote me on that. I don't believe H77 and B65 boards are. There's a few links on the net explaining the differences between each series... z77/z75/B75/H77...etc...
  6. Yeah, I did a side-by-side comparison of Extreme4 and Extreme6... and next to no difference. I think we know what the next big board is going to be... <.<

    Also, I only got interested in hardware like a month ago. Do you know if the price drops on motherboards after they are released? Like... within a month?

    I don't see them dropping in price that soon. Some boards...most boards drop in price, and a few boards never drop in price. The Asrock P67 extreme4 never dropped in price to my knowledge. It did offer free shipping a few times on newegg which saved $8.

    http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/z77-express-virtu-mvp-benchmark,3174.html <---- Here's a short and basic review done on those boards here on Toms today.
  10. .... lol
  11. lots of pci-e 2.0 16......... and then they say @4x. Hope people pay attention to that because it seems extremely misleading in the description to me.
  12. lol indeed. That ASUS looks like it could stop a bullet.

    Dangit. Now I wanna click that link.
  13. What's a good chipset for cheap motherboards like the H61? I'm a budget builder and was wondering what chipset to choose from the new Ivy Bridge ones.
  14. You don't really need the new ones. They don't offer that much of an increase in anything.

    Those would be the B75 & H77 boards.
