Upgrading to 3770k

Before I start I'm aware the 4th gen will be coming out soon, but I want an upgrade now. I'm looking to buy an i7 3770k, and just want to make sure that this mobo http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157293&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&AID=10446076&PID=4003003&SID=p4ukhcnvb4hn will be the one for me. I'm planning on OCing to 4.6-4.8 depending on the chip. I currently have a 960 that's @ 4.2, and after countless LinX passes I still don't feel 100% comfortable with it. Will the ASRock Z77 be sufficient for the OCing I plan on doing? I also SLI gtx 660s, the board is "quad sli" compatible though so no problems there.

  1. You're not going to be able to do quad SLI with 4 cards... what they mean by that is you get 2x GTX 690/7990s...

    It only has 2x PCI-E x16/x8 slots...

    And what cooler do you have? because you probably won't be able to reach 4.8 without water cooling... maybe 4.6 if you got the Noctua NH-D14...
  2. Yeah I don't care about quad sli.... I said I have gtx 660s in SLI. I have an H80

    Well. The Noctua NH-D14 is better than your h80. (roughly the same cooling as the H100) so you'll probably push 4.5-4.6 max...
