Like an hour or two, it's close enough. I'm considering getting a $190 3570k, might just get one off ebay for $200 though just cause of the gas.

But yea. DC area.

The 3770k isn't too far away in price from that so consider that. And I would highly recommend you to invest in a better board. If you plan to keep this build for quite a while, I recommend you getting at least a Maximus V Gene or something in that quality. You can OC it better and it will last much longer.

It's just for gaming+ streaming so I don't need an i7. My Phenom x4 is more than powerful enough for my needs, which will stay the same for at least 2 years, if not 6+ years.

The reason I'm upgrading is because I'm selling my current build for a little profit, and I have an extra GPU and heatsink laying around, so given that I can upgrade to an i5 3570k + $80-100 motherboard for the same amount I'd get for my phenom x4 build.

I could just go with an i5 2500k, but I plan to delid the ivb. Delidded, +5-8% increase per clock, I think your getting about 450+ mhz in performance for only a $40 price premium. I think $10 per 100mhz is worthwhile.

I am not going to pay a price premium for sli, i just thought if all these boards were so expensive that you might as well pick one for sli. I'm just looking for the cheapest board with voltage control and good overclockability, that isn't gimped. i think hardocp said the extreme4 z68 was gimped with overclocking.
http://hardocp.com/article/2011/11/09/asrock_z68_extreme4_gen3_motherboard_review/6
I'm using a GTX 460 768mb. I will not need pci 3.0....
Furthermore, even if I was using a gpu that used pci-e 3.0, that 'cheapest' one that does is the GTX 680. Which I wont get for at least 5+ years. I will only be playing sc2 for the next 5+ years (at least 2 years, ie upgrade cycle...). and the gtx 460 is actually too powerful for sc2 (its an old game...). And benches show that gtx 680 is less than 10%, like only 3% improvement, and only in max payne 3, for pci 3.0 over 2.0.
So I REALLY do not need pci 3.0.
So you sound like you know what you are talking about, but your post isn't really helpful simply because you are so focused on pci 3.0 - something that isn't really useful as it is, and that i wont be using.
What do you mean you only have to flash on gen3? I thought gen3 was like the newer board, and that some gen3 boards you didnt have to flash actually. You really can just plug and play a z68 as long as it's not a gen3? And whatever, I'll be buying the board either used with the newest bios (i contact the seller) OR I'll get a bios replacement chip. I dont consider the bios thing an issue.
but $125, would you rather have an asus maximus iv gene 4 z68, or an extreme 3? It's no question, right? Or p67 sabertooth for $70, or a G41 z77? right?


Well there is a reason Biostar sells boards for $60, because they are garbage. I've owned Biostar before, I had my first one and it was trash and had to RMA it three times, then I was foolish enough to buy another one of their boards, lasted less than a month. I smashed it with a hammer in the backyard.

I had a Maximus IV Gene-Z Z68, I flashed it to take an Ivy and it worked but it was pretty buggy. The ASRock Extreme4 is the cheapest motherboard I could recommend for an Ivy Bridge unlocked chip.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157293

But you know what's not cheap? Spending $75 on a board, only to find out it sucks and your system is really glitchy or doesn't overclock worth a damn, then having to buy a new board anyway even though everyone told you that it was the best way to go in the first place. I'm not trying to be rude but it seems like the general consensus is that you should go Z77 with an Ivy. If going cheap is the plan then buy a used 2500K and used Z68.

EDIT: Also what Swag was trying to say is that at Microcenter if you buy a 3570K you get $50 off on a motherboard. That would make your motherboard (the one I linked) about $85-$90 and your i5 would be cheaper than anywhere else already so you would be able to save the most money that way.

i always keep an eye out for future upgrades, thats my own habit rolleyes.gif. from the sounds of it though you have it planned out well and know exactly what you need and a Z68 or Z67 should fit the bill nicely

Not focused on 3.0. You're the one that said you had to flash the bios. You don't have to flash a Z68 board if you're not trying to get Gen 3 out of it with an IVY. You just stick the chip in it & it works straight off... I would buy a Z77 board plain & simple!

Im going to be buying a 3570k soon but I cannot justify the cost of z77. Z68 has all the features that z77 has, and the few that it doesnt have, ive seen 100% of the time that the specific motherboard has the features anyways.
sata 3, usb 3, pci3, i won't be using any of these features, p67/z68 motherboards have these features, and they aren't even noticeable nowadays even if you do have them and use them.
The real differences I think in z77/z68 vs p67, is just intel srt (im only using a single ssd), quicksync (not utilized by any programs i use), and lucid virtu (crap program, just for energy efficiency anyways and i dont care about that).
However, I have 2 concerns, and it's actually more about the motherboards than p67/z68:
1. I need a motherboard that overclocks well, and allows voltage control. I know, for example, some lower end ga, p867 lx/le, msi 41/43 boards dont allow voltage control.
2. The board, I'd prefer, supports SLI (not a big deal, but just let me know).
Is there something where p67 cannot do sli with ivy bridge?
I'm totally aware that in order to support ivb, a p67/z68 needs a bios flash. I'll be buying $10 for a bios chip or buying it used, dont worry about that. I'd just rather pocket $100+ in savings from a z77 chipset, and buying p67/z68, than buying an overprice4d z77 just because of out of box ivy support (and some gen 3 z68's even have native z68 support out of box these days, and even have pci 3.0 support).
But a z68 asus maximus iv gene 3 goes for $120, and it's over $200+ for z77. There's plenty of budget GA and EVGA boards, but apparently they had a ton of ivb issues at release. Now it's been a year, but google results dont exactly bring up 20 pages of "hey guys, my ga is no trouble at all!".
Thanks.
If your buying an IB chip buy and IB board. Z77 preferably. Don't cheap out and buy a subpar board, you won't be happpy. 50 bux more for a Z77 board vs z68. Maximus V GENE is not 200+ dollars. New list price is 199.99. You can find it cheaper than that, especially when you're geting a processor at the same time. Listen to everyone here, don't cheap out on mobo. wink.gif

Nice nice, the MVG is a great board. I was able to easily OC my CPU to 4.8 and reach 5.4 as my max clock so far. All with air cooling!

Hopefully this costa rica one runs bit better than the other 3770K's, planning to use air and moderate clock with lowest vCore as possible.
I almost bought Asrock Z77 PRO-M but tought that MVG should last longer with better vrm and quality, price difference was 80€uros.

I still have my WC loop from my last Define mini WC build, if i want to push it lil harder thumb.gif
