Motherboard suggestions

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I need a new board for my sig rig. The Old GD-65 died frown.gif
So I've limited options here in BD so I need a bit of help, so could you guys suggest me which would be the best within these?
Asrock Z77 Extreme6 - 18,000BDT (220USD)
Asrock Z68 Extreme7 - 27,000BDT (343USD)
Asrock Z77 Extreme 4 - 14,000BDT
Gigabyte G1 Sniper 2 - 18,000BDT (220USD)
ASUS P8Z77-V - 22,000BDT (269.889 USD)
ASUS Z77 Sabertooth - 25,000BDT (306USD)
MSI Z77-GD45 - 18000BDT (220USD)
So thats about all my options, so any help on these would be appreciated. I would like to keep the cost reasonable in the same time I can pay extra if the board is worth it. Plans of doing 2-Way SLI but I don't think I'll be doing 4-Way. Yes I do plan on pushing the CPU upto 5 GHz or more as I've done it before on my GD-65. And yes these are overpriced in BD, nothing to do frown.gif

Thanks.

3570K?
ASUS P8Z77-V or Asrock Z77 Extreme6 would be my choice. None of the Z68 boards would be useful - old chipset. I haven't had great experience with MSI, so that'd be out of the question for me...

2500k for now. Extrme6 is cheaper and MSI boards are having issues all over so I'll like to avoid it too.

If you're going to upgrade that sucker eventually then still stick with a Z77 I think, yeah.
Yeah screw MSI tongue.gif


Extreme6 is a great board.

Yep, Gigabyte Ga-Z77X-UD5H is better than Extreme 6 in every way I can think of rolleyes.gif.

6+2 VRM digi design, when AsRock gives you only 4+1 analog.

It also doesn't use ugly brown PCB as AsRock does redface.gif

EDIT: Reread your original post. If you are limited to those boards, then at those prices Extreme 6 is probably the best choice... G1 Sniper 2 may have Gigabyte boot loop problems...

Asus is seriously overpriced.

EDIT 2: Actually seems that Sniper 2 is fine http://www.overclock.net/t/1109516/official-g1-sniper-2-owners-club-discussion-info/80#post_16603053

My vote goes for it.
