more for the rig color theme or look for me when choosing motherboard

This is what I want aswell for me it's more rig theme color but I don't want to end up getting a rubbish motherboard just because it matches my theme color.

I'm probably going to get flamed for this, but my evga z77 ftw is an excellent board. Newegg reviews are awful for this product but honestly it's a great board. You get 4 way sli with a plx chip for 200 usd. People complain about the bios being buggy but I'm on the original bios and haven't had any problems getting a 4.8 ghz OC on my 2500k. It can likely OC higher, but I have no need.

Anyway, just throwing it out there wink.gif

Yeah I bought it when it first came out for $330 so I was kinda pissed when I saw those prices. Can't complain though I think the board is worth every penny.

He's referring to the z68 board, which is horrible and you can't overclock on most models.
