well HungryP, seems you and I are going to have close to the same set-up..Allow me to say that you won't be disappointed. I am extremely happy with this board. My last set-up, a gigabyte 990fxa-UD-7 was a pain to build, 3 boards were DOA (no joke)..this one started up with no issues what so ever. Awesome just awesome.

I spent less money on the basics to start my AMD rig (mobo,cpu, etc) , but I am so happy that I invested the money in this Intel system. Maybe once the kinks are worked out of BD and PD comes out, if it ever does, I'll get my AMD rig back up...

Once you get the set up going HungryP, please post your OC. I can't seem to get any higher than 4.2 with 103 multi. I am unfamiliar with the EUFI bios so I just used the ASUS auto-clock feature.

Also, could anyone tell me if using IGPU is even worth it, if so how do I work out the kinks,? I tried using it but it will not work in tandem with my gtx570.

Thank you.

Hi everyone. I want to buy this motherboard. But if the Thermalright Silver Arrow can't fit with the TUF armor on then I won't buy it.

Can the Silver Arrow fit on this board?

Well a D14 fits with this motherboard, and I've seen someone who uses a Silver Arrow but points upwards.

Do this motherboard have a temperature probe header? Are it able to control fan headers independently?

You can control fan headers independently, as well as the 2 assist fans. Or you can set a temperature curve for your fans, so only spin up at a certain degrees.

Can anyone help me out please! What are the main components that I should look out for, for when it comes to making sure that my system will be compatible? I don't know whether it should only be the Motherboard, Hard Drive, Power Supply, Graphics Card, Sound Card, Processor and Optical Drive.

I have researched online on many forums and people have said to mainly stick with a specific manufacturer. So far for my Graphics Card, Wireless Card and Motherboard is with Asus.

Graphics Card: Asus Nvidia Geforce GTX 560 Ti DirectCU II (2GB, GDDR5, mini HDMI, 2x DVI, Nvidia SLI Technology, Overlclock on arrival)
Motherboard: Asus Sabertooth P67 1150 socket REV 3.0 ATX
Wireless Card: Asus N15 300mbps
Memory Module: Vegence Memory 16GB 4x

But for the Processor: Intel core i5 2300 2.8GHz, the Sound Card: is a Creative Sound Blaster Audigy SE and the Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda 500GB 7200rpm 16mb cache. And for the Optical Drive: LG BH08LS20 AUAR 8x internal BDRW Black.

I would just like to know if all these components are compatible. If any of you could help me with this I would really appreciate it!

Sticking with the same manufacturer is not true. Every manufacturer is competing so you use their products and they will make it compatible with everyone else.

Your motherboard tells you what is compatible to anchor on it. You look in your motherboards manual to see it's memory QVL (Qualified vendor list) it lists all the tested and qualified memory product numbers (there are about 50+ memory they give you a guarantee it will be at advertised clock speed out of the box). Memory that is not listed there does work but lets stick to the basics.

The motherboard manual (which is also available for download from asus website) also tells you what CPU socket it supports and what generation of Pentiums. It also tells you what expansion slots you have on the motherboard. The only issue u will have with Video cards is if you want to use SLI or crossfire the motherboard chipset has to be capable of it, your power supply must give enough juice to your video card (650W PSU is more than enough for someone without SLI or crossfire), lastly make sure your video card fits in your case!

Hope this helps as a starting point!
post #220 of 6915
I dn't see an issue with compatibility at all. When I build my system I make sure that CPU matches the motherboard socket, and that all my hardware has drivers for my OS, Windows 7. Also check to make sure that you aren't buying an HDD or DVD-ROMs with IDE instead of SATA . I bought a mobo a few months ago and didn't look to see the placement of PCI-E and PCI legacy slots..after I had installed my 2 Asus GTX570 CU II I had no more expansion slots so I couldn't use my NIC card or sound card..so thats another thing to look out for. I am using the Corsair Vengeance 4x4gig modules on my mobo now, shoud be fine. What Gaunlet mentioned above about the PSU is important..make sure you have enough juice to run it. When I bought mine I asked the guy at my local PC shop and he suggested 750 watts after I told him what I had..I went with 850watts so I could expand and have peace of mind. Has this system that you mentioned already been built or are you buying all the components?

If you are about to buy all the components check out the IB 3570k i5, it's only a little more than the SB i5 2300. Supposedly there is a bios update for all 6 series mobos that enable you to use IB chips. Frankly I don't think it would hurt to look and see if you can get any "k" processor in your price range as you can overclock it for more performance.

Hope that help or is atleast close to the answer you need bud. Good Luck
