^Sorry to hear about that chip. Return it?

I just installed a 3770K on a P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3, but that board was up for sale and just found a buyer the day I got the chip, so now I need a board.

If I want to be back up today it looks like I have to go to Fry's and choose from the Sabertooth, P8Z77-V, or Z77-V Pro (or some MSI boards I've never heard of).

What is the Sabertooth intended for? It's got 8+4(+2) power phases and costs $20 more than the Z77 Pro which is 12+4 phase. I have no use for onboard devices, ports or whatever. I just want OC options. Go with the Pro, or is there more to the Sabertooth that I'm not seeing?

Anyone have any idea how to get stereo upmix when using 4 speakers on these Z77 boards? I saw video of an Asus rep saying it is possible and I can't seem to figure it out for myself and Google is of no help.

For pure Overclocking go with the Gene if they have it, otherwise the Pro should be good.
The Gene has more options then any board ever made. Expecially RAM profiles.

Sabertooth is for people who want extra tough components for longevity. I did some research and as a gamer and OCer the Sabertooth is not a very good board. The Pro has better voltage regulation (better for overclocking) and has better memory support (again better for overclocking). For the regular OCN overclocker it looks like the Asus P8Z77-V Pro board is the best choice and that is why I bough it. thumb.gif

I hope this UD5H is the best board like the UD3P was way back when tongue.gif

question is the wifi that comes with the asus p8z77-v deluxe good for wideband cable 50mb down / 5mb up ?
also do you use both intel usb3 and asmedia usb3 ?

The wifi is N is yes it should be good to 300mb down and up. Also yes it has both intel and asmedia usb 3 and sata 3.
