How is this mobo?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So im going to be going i7 2600k and im looking at this board.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131730

I wont get anything but asus, but i have heard that some new asus boards cant be adjusted in the bios. My buddy has one that you can only change the voltages through software..

Anything like that i should know about? thanks!

With that board you'll have full overclocking capabilities, including voltages.

That's an epic motherboard for the price tbh. You'll be happy with it

Definitely would be a great motherboard to go with and they seem to have a lot of RMA locations (aka they have one in canada for canadians)

Nice choice.

Keep in mind in couple weeks Asus's Gen3 motherboard will hit the shelf. If you want PCI Express 3.0 you probably should wait a couple weeks.

i think it is. well if u plan on gaming and thats it u can get a i52500s that is cehaper. if you dont mind spending the extra buck, of course ull get teh extra performance. as of now i think the i72600k is the best. and remember to get the K version.
also if you paln OCing you should look at some heatpipe7fan combo for the cpu,like a noctua or go watercooling
