post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
I'm going to buy the i5-3570K and looking for a motherboard to pair up with it. I'm very interesting with these items:

- ASRock Z77 OC Formula
- ASUS Maximus V FORMULA/THUNDERFX
- ASUS Maximus V EXTREME

Which one should I choose? I would like to OC this CPU. Please let me know asap. Thanks a lot guys.

A 150-200 dollar board will do just fine for OCing. Those are all just filled with extras. I had the Maximum V Gene and it was amazing, and still had alot of bells and whistles.

Is OCing all you will be doing, or do you wanna play around with cool features? If OCing is the only important thing grab a MVG or equivalent phased Asrock board and call it a day. If it has to be one of those you suggested then my vote goes towards asrock. thumb.gif

Thanks guys, I would love to OCing and have some other cool features as well biggrin.gif. I really like the look of Z77 OC, and $240 is not a bad number, am not so sure how those will perform.
