Hey guys, im in the process of FINALLY upgrading my P.C to something abit more powerful :) 

but i am a little stuck.

i am getting a i5 3750k (which i plan on oc'in to 4.5ghz), An NZXT Hades case, 8gb of the new Samsung green Ram but im stuck on which mobo to go for. i have around £110 left in my budget but with all the choice out there i want to get the right one for a stable overclock and some nice features.

this will be friday (hopefully) and be paired with my msi 6870 HAWK and XFX pro 550w Bronze PSU

any help is much appreciated.

It is 3570k btw. For MOBO, if you're not CF/SLIng, get the Z77 Pro3 Gen3. What state do you live in?

If you are buying i7 3570k buy a Z77 motherboard. You can't find a better motherboard for the price, go buy Asrock Z77 Extreme4

Or even the Pro3 Gen3 if he's not SLI/CFing.

thanks for your replies, i can find the pro3 gen3 anywhere on UK sites, only a mATX version with less phases.

ive looked at the Extreme4 but is £125 @ do you know of any other reliable sites that might be cheaper?

Phases don't matter too much at 4.5 GHz.

Oh, ok. but i really wanted to avoid mATX mainly for my ego. i think they look like kids versions of the adult toys... ,might be weird, but that's how i feel.

plus, my CPU cooler is HUGE.
