Looking for a new motherboard, please recommend some.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,
I currently have a gigabyte z68 motherboard,
I am looking for a new one for multiple reasons.

One of the reasons, the board isn't that great of an overclocker.
I am really looking to get higher than 4.6Ghz with less voltage then i need on that board.

Another reason, i was going to add a 2nd 550Ti in SLI to balance out my system.
The motherboard doesn't support SLI and i don't want to use any weird software to make it work.

I require that the new motherboard is Asus or Asrock, I really want to stay away from gigabyte.
I would like if the motherboard had the clickbios, but if that can't fit in my budget then im fine with out it.

I have 16GB ram 4x4GB so i require 4 slots.

I forgot to add that my budget is $100
and i will be purchasing it from amazon

Thanks for all the suggestions in advance,
Mike

It's not listed on Amazon(might be), but it is on Newegg. The AsRock z77 Extreme3. It's about 10 dollars above your budget, but it it has everything you need. I literally just ordered mine with a 3570K two days ago. thumb.gif
