Overall a very good build though. | Report abuse Robbaazz May 21, 2012 1:39:37 PM Oh wait, H77s don't support 2nd gen overcloking.

Just a suggestion, as Sandy Bridge is still awesome. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Systems>Final components for my first build> Related ressources: ForumFirst build . final list of components . need last min opinions!! please ForumFirst ever build - Components selected - Any final advice?
