You've bought these already? The motherboard you got, yes, unfortunately is highly overpriced. You could've bought something MUCH MUUCCCHHH better at that price. Something like the Maximus V Formula or the Sabertooth or the P8Z77 V-Pro. And also, the RAM isn't good either. The G.Skill RipJaws X 1600Mhz would've been the best.

But it's okay as long as you're happy with this. We always learn from our mistakes :)

Guys this is my build.
I had another thread on another place,
Was told that the intel z77 i chose was overpriced. But doesnt this include stableness and overall up to atleast 5 yrs?
Where he mentioned the asrockz77 gen 4 and 6 as well as gigabyte z77

I know that ASRock had problems with overheat with their mobo's back in the past, but not sure about now.
Will prefer something for long term.

For OC, i probably do it sometimes, just to test it out.
But probably not all the time for the sake of taking care of my computer.
But yea, what do you guys think about this build.

More comments will be cool guys.


Get Asus or Gigabyte if you want high quality and durability for long term.

Thanks for the reminding guys.
I thought intel will be good, but i guess im wrong.
Intel is good for cpu but not mobo. :/ 
Lucky you guys woke me up !

so yea which will be better off? (List the top 2 preference so i get a choice by choosing the budget)
asus x77 sabertooth
asus P8Z77 V-Pro
gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H whats the diff between some series that has UD3H and UD5H?

Hrm, i was thinking 500gb that will be more than enough. Because i dont really use that much

What are the top preference brands for HDD's?
I see many people uses Seagate and i found on ccpu website the 500gb toshiba one is faster than the seagate 500gb.
16 and toshiba is 32....

Ideas thanks !!

And the case you suggested, is actually quite nice ! i love it how theres many fans, it let me feel the airflow goes well and the price is economical. Good stuff ~ thanks !
Let me know if theres any other options in cases too with such price, so i can see which is the best i like out of it :) 
thanks
By the way i am from Australia, Sydney. The shops will be more of like Pc case gear and MSY and something like that.

Never use Squidoo as your mentor haha. It's a very weird site. Always ask in the forums :)  We guys are computer enthusiasts and I bet we all know much more than the guy that posted that.

For a high spec. computer like that, RAMs like the G.Skill RipJaws X, Vengeance and Trident are the best. I recommend the G.Skill as it's the best I've used till now, Never had a problem, easy to overlcock, SUPER fast even @ 1600Mhz. The vengeance is great too. But still, the G.Skill is much better in my opinion.

As for the motherboard, go for the ASUS Maximus V Formula if possible or go for the Sabertooth.

This will help you out -

Maximus V Formula > Sabertooth > P8Z77 V-Pro = Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H > ASRock Fatal1ty Z77 Professional > ASRock Extreme6 > ASRock Extreme4

^ Rude much?

Calm down mate. He's here for help, he never said "Oooohhh my build is the best did he?". So don't use a sentence like that. Specially in a forum where people come for help.

do yourself a favor and buy the build i posted, the motherboard should be the LEAST of your worries, you should only spend a significant amount of money on a motherboard if you want 3/4 way Crossfire/SLI @8x/8x/8x/8x the rest of the motherboards priced @160-250$ are complete bull sh!t.
