Hey guys, 1st time builder here. I was wondering if you guys can take the time to check my build and fill in the last piece to this puzzle (the mother board).

I will add additional comments at the end of the thread to comply (somewhat) with the forums rules on asking to check builds :D 


CPU :pfff:  : i5 3570k

HDD :pfff:  Western Digital Caviar Black 1 TB SATA III 7200 RPM 64 MB Cache Internal Desktop Hard Drive Bulk/OEM - WD1002FAEX

OS: :pfff:  Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64bit (Full) System Builder DVD 1 Pack---92$


RAM: :pfff:  G.skill Ripjaws X Series 16gb (4 X 4gb) 240-pin Ddr3 Sdram Ddr3 1600 (Pc3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800cl9q-16gbxl

PSU :pfff:  Corsair Enthusiast Series 650-Watt 80 Plus Bronze Certified Power Supply Compatible with Core i3, i5, i7 and platforms - TX650

My GPU will come factory OC'd. I will be buying a radeon HD 7870 in the future, but for now i'm going to use my HD 7750. In terms of OC'ing my CPU, i might do so in the future, but for now I will leave it as is.



I have narrowed down my choices for a motherboard to a z77 board...prefereably gigabyte/msi/ or asus. I looked into the asrock extreme4 z77, but I hear that its' measurements are a bit off, so i've opted out of that one =/.


So, the big question: Which mobo do you guys suggest, and will work with my build?


Does my build look compatible overall?



Thanks alot!

If you want to overclock the CPU, you are going to need a CPU cooler.
