Why wouldn't you wait until Ivy is released then you can get a combo with the CPU to save more money.

Sorry , having the same question here.Hope you thread starter wouldn't mind I post here.

Planing on getting 2500k since IB having much negative review on temp but op for a better motherboard Z77 rather than z68 maybe USB 3.0 upgrade with an extra few buck.Asus P8Z68V-LX upgrade to P8Z77V-LX

Does Asus P8Z77v-LX is a good budget motherboard ? I plan to overclock it up to 4.5Ghz on 2500k with CM 212 evo heatsink.Reading the spec it only have 4 phase , does it have the stability to OC to 4.5Ghz ? maybe for 3-5 hours for gaming perday ?

http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/P8Z77V_LX/
Hope someone will give a few opinion , basically it's somehow same as p8z68v-lx specification.Thanks smile.gif

Z77V-LX is a good motherboard by itself, problem is that it is overpriced. It is not the motherboard you should get if you want the best bang per dollar spent. It can handle 4.5 GHz OC, since it is a conservative overclock.

TZ77XE3 all the way for budget motherboard.

What do you mean by conservative overclock ?
I went and lookup on biostar TZ77XE3 but I can't seem to find any review on OC.Does it really giving a 13 phase ? how much allocated to the cpu ? worth it ?

Well you can't say just either way now. But what's the point of buying a board and then not using it for a week, vs buying a board and cpu at the same time? Either way the computer gets assembled on the same day.

It will OC great and have no problem providing as much current as you want. Just take a look at what the TP67XE can do with only 10 phases.

Thanks but those OC is different story , you need a LC to OC > 5Ghz . I mean air cooling , somethings basic OC 4.5Ghz will be enough for me.But those board TP67XE is different with the current TZ77XE3 .
Still need some strong support on review.
Anyone owning biostar TZ77XE3 now ?

dude ivy bridge is a great CPU! Its temps don't mean anything as there isn't half as much heat as sandy bridge, just high temperatures b/c I believe that realtemp is off, my motherboard's temp sensor was re-calibrated in a BIOS update a little before Z77 release, and it reads lower temp than Realtemp, and i used a meter to measure temp right above the core of the CPU and it was closer to the mobo program.
