what motherboard should i get for the i5 3570k?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
i recently decided to buy the 3570k over the 2500k as the hyper-threading will improve rendering times which is a shame as i liked how much you could overclock the 2500k and still have good temps, better than ivy-bridge anyway i like the asus z77 sabertooth motherboard and i will overclock but not much probably to a stable 4.2ghz or something but would like a board that if i decide to water cool later on i will have a good enough power delivery system on this board for some better overclocking e.g 5ghz. i like the this board and can get it really cheap the now at £160 which is pushing my budget of £150 but is this board the best i can get for my money and i would prefer a substitute asus motherboard as im a bit of an asus fanboy and i am trying to build a pc from only asus and corsair parts, except the hdd and cpu obviously.

the planned system

motherboard to be confirmed
cpu i5 2570k
hdd western digital caviar black 1tb
gtx 660 ti asus top edition will sli in the near future
8gb corsair vengance ram 1866mhz
ssd to be confirmed
so if anyone could help it would be great even if its just your view on the system or what motherboard i should get

p.s Asus MAXIMUS IV GENE-Z/GEN3 is only £132 the now but its an itx motherboard so i know its good for overclocking but i might need the extra pci slots

I really would steer clear of the gene board to be honest, the Asus P8Z77-V Pro is an excellent board. As for SSD's the cruicial M4 is a good choice as well.

Comps

EDIT - Why not get the 2600k if you really need the HT and you want sandy, to be honest though because of the architectural differences the ivy will outperform either way.

i cant find any amazing difference in the 2500k and the 2600k to justify the extra £100 in price yes its faster but at a cost, i found a samsung 128gb 830 sdd for £80 which is a good prive and i have read alot of good review and alot say it beats the crucial m4 in write and read speeds and its on special at £80 from £133. so i should probably go with the sabertooth then also should i get the z77 or z68 motherboard as im new to building intel pc's and cant find any difference personally

The only difference between the 2500k and the 2600k is the hyper-threading, with some applications it'll give you a 40% increase in performance so is well worth the extra £££

There is a massive difference between the z68 and the z77. It's called PCI-E 3.0 which will be better for future GPU's, I think it might even be in use now with the amd 7000 and nvidia 600 series GPU's.

As for the SSD it's not just about read and write, it's the IOPS and random reads as well. However when you get to the higher SSD's you'll not really notice any difference in performance I.E Gaming etc

Found the link for the SSD's http://www.overclock.net/t/1179518/seans-ssd-buyers-guide-information-thread#user_SeansrecommendedSSDs

I would look at the Z77 ASRock Extreme4. I build my brothers computer around this with a 3570k and it works flawlessly.
