And the Asrock H77M or Pro4/MVP. Lastly, that RAM will void your warranty because of high voltage. You want the Corsair Vengenace or G.Skill Ares sticks. | Report abuse miror55 October 13, 2012 10:10:00 AM the asrok motherboard are realy needed? becuase the store im buying from dont sell these motherboards. | Report abuse Nw333 October 13, 2012 10:30:28 AM Well, its a bigger motherboard but if its not available check out the Asus P8H77 series and find a mobo which suits your needs. I know little about the P8H77 series, sorry. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Systems>Want to upgrade my system> Related ressources: ForumI want to upgrade my entire system but not reinstall windows ForumWant to upgrade my system questions ForumI want to Upgrade my system ForumI want to upgrade sr2013wm system ForumWant to upgrade ForumWant to run Bioshock Infinite on eyefinity setup - Upgrade or build?
