For gaming I keep hearing that the Sabertooth z77 is over priced but I keep reading excelent reviews on it including the easy to use bios for OC. However, I also hear that the Asrock extreme 4 is just as good and a lot cheaper than the Sabertooth. Needless spending or is the Sabertooth worth it for the features and thermal armor?
Thermal armor is nothing more than a gimmick. With that said the extreme4 is a good choice for people on a budget that want the option to add a second vid card later on. If you have a large budget than it doesn't matter if your excessive with it, but for a lot of people here that $100 difference on the motherboard can make or break a build.
