Price low to high I'd reccomend:

-Extreme 6
-Z77X-UD3H
-Maximus V Gene
-OC Formula
-Maximus V Formula / UP5
-Maximus V Extreme
-UP7

great list!

It's an okay board, like the UD5H...There are better things out there. thumb.gif

I would not go with asus board's only if it is a ROG Board otherwise skip them, try a Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H or UD5 or Asrock extreme4 / 6 cant go wrong with those.

I'd agree except on the Extreme 4...it's like a really budget cheapass board. I'd skip it if possible.

The mpower is my fav z77 so far of the few I've tried. Guys who use the offset voltage thing dislike the way mpower doesn't do it the same way, I prefer it like that though.
The ud3h is good, just a couple very minor issues, I hate the clear cmos location (not an issue if someone doesn't use the reset button much, but ud5h looks the same) & the way you only get 2 x usb ports without drivers, also not a big deal for non benchers, I try to install as few drivers as possible.
The mvg is also good, but just so small... makes it hard to set things up the way I'm used to (& not huge air cooler friendly if you have a gpu as well). No ps2 port is also a minus for me (I get much use out of ps2 still).

Can't really go wrong with the boards in ivan's list (not sure about extreme 6, the OC Formula is still the only asrock I would look at).

Asrock is pretty good actually i have the cheapest board from them z77 pro3 and can run 5.1GHz DDR 2400 cas 10 no problem at all (90€ board) so as far as board's go i would not spend premium money if i was going to use it with Air or wc...
post #8909 of 34164
This is true, I tend to look at sub zero cooled results when comparing boards & asrock just wasn't in there for a long time, but don't see many complaints from the users who do have them.

ivanlabrie, FtW 420 re 'POS' Sabertooth

Well, just came back from dinner and I find a gang-up on the Sabertooth Z77 ? A ' POS thumb.gif ' ...oh, what language for my virgin ears - the humanity of it all biggrin.gif

I am not sure how many of you actually run a Sabertooth Z77 at the moment, nor am I married to that board. I just authorize a lot of hardware re running a software company that is active globally, and as such have a pretty good relationship with our hardware sources both in this region and Europe where our main ops are. Up until four or five months ago, I was running an Abit board (please don't laugh) as my main personal rig, not least as I had gotten out of overclocking for a while after starting that back with my DX4 / 100 all those ions ago.

On the commercial front, we either run Intel or Asus in various configs with Xeons, and no, we don't overclock those - I am just happy if they keep on humming away, and have spares just in case they are not. But even there, water cooling is starting to make more inroads which is why I like to learn more about it myself.

Now, I actually wanted to build a few test machines around the LGA 2011 socket, but realized that with the ongoing move to 22 nm, I should wait until that has trickled down to 8 core+ Xeons (Q3+). So to get ready for those, I ordered a couple of basic Ivy Bridge machines to play around with - using the lowly Asus P8Z77-V LK boards ($120). One of those boards I pushed up to 4833 MHz with low voltage on the CPU, 32 GB of Ripjaw DDR3 1600 and without ever encountering a single BSOD...good enough for me.

I then asked my closest retailer here (as opposed to our main office in Europe), which Z77 board was a.) a good performer and b.) had the lowest RMA with them. Some Asus ROG boards came up, along with Gigabyte - and the Sabertooth Z77...there are those who suggest that it is very close to the Asus ROG Max V gene re features and components, and there is a table on 'Hardware Secrets' that supports that view (ie Sabertooth being an entry version of ROG).

Again, I don't consider myself a 'fan boy' nor an expert in this market segment, but many of the folks who sell those for a living also choose the Sabertooth Z77 for their own rigs - good enough for me, never mind the 5 year warranty. Also, just for fun I have done at least 10 runs between 5.1 and over 5.2 GHz over the last three days, just to fine tune some BIOS settings I treat differently than most of you, and the board has been flawless so far....we will see what it can really do once I delid and upgrade cooling.

All that said, do I think that Gigabyte boards are heavily represented in LNG and such top speed runs - and for good reason ? Sure, among the best.

The only brand that would concern me for now is Asrock - until a question is answered because I have been following this thread which appeared just a few days ago: http://www.overclock.net/t/1349216/is-asrock-really-cheating-us-on-software-voltage-readings
