I just purchased the new Asrock Z77 fatal1ty pro for a couple of reasons.... I came from an asus P8P67 pro board which would not overclock my cpu past 4.8 @ 1.45v , I plan on switching to a 3570k if reviews are good. I bought the asrock board as it has 18+8 power phases which is high for Z77 and the newer Z77 chipset and it costs the same as any other high end P67, Z68 board.

I can now overclock the same 2500k i had to 5ghz @ 1.4v and i could not be happier with it, temps are way down too! I would seriously consider this board for overclocking, reviews on this board say the same with one in particular also claiming an extra 300mhz overclock from their 2600k to 4.8ghz from a previous best of 4.5.

ASRock Z77 Extreme 4 is a decent board (i have one) it has 8+4 power phases which is plenty for overclocking (IMO 18+8 is overkill but ok tongue.gif) and has basically the same features as all the other ASRock boards....
post #4 of 8
are we talking about extreme benching with ln2??
Then i would suggest an ASUS ROG extreme with z68 chipset...
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131760
or an EVGA z68 FTW
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813188099

but really ideally id wait for some more high-end z77 motherboards if you want to do some ln2 overcloking...

or simple air/ water cooling??
this is much easier area....

ASRock Z77 Professional
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157299
should be more than enough VRM's for a good overclock and id also suggeest the Gigabyte UD5 because i can vogue that these are rock solid boards
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128549

but really id wait and see what z77 boards are still coming out... (especially the Asus ROG formula for z77)

That question is so vague..

What kind of OC'ing?

Stock cooler?
Air?
High end air?
Water?
DICE?
LN2?
HE2?

The answer to your question could be anywhere from this to this.

Seeing as he has 5 posts, I would assume just standard/high end air or closed loop overclocking.

The last board you listed is X79... different platform. As far as high end Z77 boards go the Asrock Profesional, Gigabyte G1 Sniper 3, and asus ROG top the list, With the Asrock having the most cpu power phases which will come in handy if overclocking a sandybridge cpu as they draw more current than ivy cpu's.

Some say there's no need for that many vrm's but having come from a 12+2 vrm asus board to this asrock board i have had much greater results in overclocking

i was looking at either high end air or a water cooling kit if that makes any sense, i am new to being a computer enthusiast so i would like to get a good water cooling system.
