ALSO! if I get a water cooler does it need to have a socket 1155? because I'm going for a Intel 3rd Generation Core i5-3570K CPU (4 x 3.40GHz, Ivy Bridge, Socket 1155, 6Mb L3 Cache, Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0)

Someone tell me the cons of owning this board, or any hiccups.

I'm seriously considering this, my 3770k coming on wednesday smile.gif

To my knowledge, no. There are CPU coolers that come with thermal compound pre-applied, but a lot of people will recommend you to remove that and apply your own, better TIM. Also, a water cooling system still requires thermal compound (you have to put it between the CPU and the block), and if you're going custom it'll cost a lot more than an air cooler. You could take a look into Corsair's H-series coolers, a lot of people have them and swear by them

were you considering the closed water loop solution like an Antec 920 or an H100? If you are they come with the mounting hardware for the 1155 Socket. I also remember you mentioning that you had or considered a p68 Sabertooth, make sure there is a bios update for that board that lets you use the Ivy bridge processor. I believe there is but don't quote me on that.

If you are starting from scratch ditch the 6-Series motherboard and go with the 7-Series. It's made for Ivy bridge. Apart from not understanding and being a total noob with the EUFI bios this board is just awesome, the z77 Sabertooth. I think the price is the same if not just a tad bit more expensive. Well worth the extra duckets though. I am very very happy. Then again I'm coming from a Gigabyte 990fxa UD-7. Apples and Oranges IMHO..and I like Oranges ALOT better.

Thanks alot for the help! I did not know that the P67 Mobo would need a BIOS update to support the Ivy bridge processor. If I did get the z77 does it come with 1155 socket?
By the way I haven't got the parts yet, just doing my research before blowing my money without even thinking of how things work for a PC. I did look on the Asus website/BIOS updates and
there are so many! like for the Qualified Vendor List etc

I'm a little worried about the last part when I've finally installed everything on my system and the BIOS don't recognise the Drivers or GPU, CPU etc frown.gif

It's crazy, I've just been educating myself throughout the last 2 days/day&night with different comments, reviews, videos etc and I finally feel like I'm getting somewhere now.
Planning always pays off.

Yeah I've been watching youtube vids and some guy was installing a Cooler Master Hyper 212, but are you on about the Corsair's CWCH60 water cooler? I had a look at it and it looks really sweet, also the quality of it and reviews are beyond good. Just I was looking at an image of it and I can't see the heatsink where you'd apply the Thermal Paste?!?

You need thermal paste in any cooling. Also if your not familiar with watercooling, I would learn before you do anything. Plus post in the correct forum section.

Also, How's it about heat? I'm on a Antec 902 case, and I dont doubt its just fine, but I heard some bad things about the past Z68 Sabertooth about that and I was kinda worried.
Thanks~!
No problem fitting on the Sabertooth. Its like any other coolermaster heatsink.
If you can get a good airflow within your case, it will keep cpu/gpu cool.
The heat will come if you OC too high with higher voltage.
Havent heard bad things from the Z68 Saberooth, kinda being a little blind.

The thermal paste goes on the CPU no matter what you put on it, so in the case of Corsair's H coolers (H60, H80, H100) it goes on the little block that you mount on your CPU. thumb.gif

Also, side question for anyone who can answer this:
Is this RAM - Crucial Ballistix Tactical Tracer - compatible with the Z77 Sabertooth? I'm looking at buying the Z77 in the next few weeks, downloaded the .pdf manual to look at the compatible RAM list, and these models were nowhere to be found. I plan on putting two of these kits on the board, for a total of 16GB. The specs for the RAM appear to be compatible with this motherboard, but am I missing anything here? Any help is awesome biggrin.gif

What Thermal Paste would be good for the Corsair CWCH60 Water Cooler?

The H60 is not a good cooler. Its weak at cooling and not much better than most air coolers.For the price, its a waste.
