At this rate maybe a sandy i5 2500k, or 2600k i7. Waiting for the ivy reviews once it's out

which would be better for ocing? Asrock or Gig? I know it all depends on the board and cpu, but generally?

i cant see why not use only 6/9 standoffs, but TBH i dont have any experience myself so i dont want to steer you wrong except use as many standoffs as the motherboard allows is what i see smile.gif

Giga warrranty support is like getting your molars yanked out. Think about that one for a moment. At least you get a mint after seeing the dentist.

If I see another crazy deal like $200 at microcenter for a 2600k, I might do it. Otherwise...I'll get a 3770k. Many of the reviews out there aren't legit, or at least the ones I have seen aren't. I think it will be fine for OCing and temps should be okay.

I guess 6 standoffs should be fine. There are 2 more, but they are in wacky places. Maybe for cords idk.

Seen alot of bad rep on gigabyte lately....

I just purchased the asrock Fatal1ty Z77 pro board as reviews were excellent and when i overclocked my older 2500k i could squeeze an extra 300mhz out of it at much lower voltage so i'm now running 5ghz 24/7 and i could not be happier, This board also benefits from 16+8 power phase design which for a Z77 board is alot thumb.gif

I have the Extreme 4. You just remove the 3 rightmost standoffs and mount it the same as a full sized ATX board. Actually I think you need to add one in the middle for the leftmost standoffs.
Good Board. Easily hit 4.5GHz on mine.
