So I thought that if you get a SB motherboard you only lose pcie3 but didn't realise that you lose the usb 3.0 ports too. My motherboard is asrock pro z77 extreme 4 and I'm wondering if the usb 3.0 slots will still work. I went with the 2500k since it overclocks better but it seems that perhaps I've made the wrong choice. Any suggestions?
Thank you for a quick reply. Yes it's a extreme 4 just like you suggested in the last thread. I am just wondering if I lose the usb 3.0 capabilities if I install the 2500k. I am kinda worried since I've just ordered my 2500k and discovered that it might take out the usb 3.0 features.
