Going to get a 3570k and Z77 board in the next week most likely..

I'm stuck between two boards.. I can get the AsRock Extreme 4 for $170 or the Gigabyte UD3H for $199.. I'm thinking i'm going to go with the AsRock.. Can anyone convince me? wink.gif
I can also get the Z77x-D3H for $179 and maybe even the Z77-D3H for $155.. What would be the best? I'm needing crossfire support at 8x/8x and 6x sata ports or more! thumb.gif

Good to see same chip at the same clock having the same vcore. What's your PLL? and may I know the batch # of your chip?

I own the Asrock Z77 Extreme4 and would highly recommend it. It has all the features I want and more. Very easy UEFI BIOS to work in and tuner friendly. Super quick booting in that the UEFI takes barely any of the total startup time. I think it's a great value. If there's anything you'd like to know about feel free to comment on my post or send me a PM.

For example, if you have LLC at low, 4.5Ghz might take 1.25 volts, because at load, the volts drop to 1.2 (hypothetical). With LLC on extreme, you can set your volts to 1.21, because at load, it will still be 1.21, therefore making the OC stable with less idle volts.
It's simply less volts being applied to your processor at idle.

So there is nothing to worry about using extreme LLC on my 24/7 Stable OC for long time use? I am new to OC and I am getting pretty close to a stable 4.5ghz using 1.220 vcore using extreme LLC but I am reading on other posts, things like extreme LLC is for extreme cooling and I dont get it. I use a Corsair H100 and my temps at 1.2-1.25 vcore have been the same on any LLC setting. With Prime Blend I get up to 65c per core using 1.22 and it usually hangs in the high 50's. Is there any reason to not use extreme LLC for everyday use is what im asking here.

LLC just reduces vDroop, it won't kill your chip. The only risk with LLC is turning it way up and not watching the load voltage. If it loads at a safe voltage then you're fine. The only issue I've had with LLC is that it can lower the idle voltages to the point where it could cause instability. If you're stable then don't worry!

While with LLC there are some voltage spikes that you don't see, they only go as high as you would have to set the voltage without LLC. That means that you're better off with some level of LLC since without it, the voltages need to sit at a higher voltage most of the time in case of the situations where it hits heavy loads.
