Best Motherboard for Overclocking i7 3770k?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I had to recently sell my computer because I was in need of some money but I can now rebuild another one that I am hoping to be a lot better then the previous one I owned.

Previous computer specs:

i7 3770k @ 4.5
asus p8z7-v
8gb corsair ram
corsair h100
msi gtx 660 ti oc
1tb western digital
corsair ax750 psu
nzxt switch 810 case

I struggled to get my cpu over clocked to 4.5 stable with the h100 and my motherboard.

What would you guys recommend the best z77 board to be for over clocking the i7 3770k to 4.6ghz and have it be very stable.

No more then $250 please and thank you.

If you also have any other suggestions feel free to leave them.

Thanks

New motherboard won't help getting your 3770K stable. P8Z77-V is a very solid choice. If it can't overclock to 4.6 Ghz, your CPU is just a bad clocker. I can't get my 3570K 4.5Ghz stable with decent voltage either.
