MSI Z77 MPower or AsRock Fatal1ty?

Hi all,

I am building a Gaming Rig, specs are below;

Processor : Intel Core i5 3570K

Graphics Card : Gigabyte Ge Force GTX 660 Ti

RAM : 8 GB DDR3 1600 MHz G.Skill Sni.Per

Cooler : Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO+ Cooler

Case : Antec Twelve Hundred Full-Tower

Storage : one 240 GB Intel 520 Series SSD, and one 3 TB WD Caviar Green 7200.00 RPM HDD

Display : Dell ST2240L Full-HD.

So I wanted to know whether I should go in for the MSI Z77 MPower or the AsRock Fatal1ty MoBo, thanks in advance, I will be OC-ing a lot. Also in future I may upgrade to a Liquid Cooling Solution. :lol: :hello:

  1. I would go for asrock purely because their motherboards are dark and black cases with black motherboards look good in my book haha
  2. Personally I'd say neither. I'd go for the Asrock OC Formula or the Gigabyte UD4 with Thunderbolt. Both will allow for some great overclocking.
  3. Ok no problem in extending my MoBo budget a little bit. Now should I go for the AsRock Oc Formula or the Gigabyte UD4 with Thunderbolt Super Speed Ports? I see the speed of USB 3.0 amazing even today so I don't find the use of a Thunderbolt Port.
    Also I don't own any Apple products.
  4. I will be buying the NZXT Phantom 820, the Antec Twelve-Hundred, Bitfenix Ghost, or Cooler Master HAF XM. As the AsRock Oc Formula is an E-ATX MoBo; whether there will be any problems.
