[Microcenter online] EVGA Z77 FTW motherboard - $189.99 AR

This is $100 cheaper than elsewhere and it doesn't appear to be a sale; just Microcenter is selling them that cheap. This is in-store and online. Happy overclocking.

If you add it to cart it will show up with a rebate for $20 off.

You can also save another $50 if you buy a CPU on Microcenter's bundle special.

And it's even LESS if you are purchasing an i5 to go with it. thumb.gif

That's crazy huh. I wish they would have had that when I bought my i7. But they want to ring us enthusiasts like a dripping wet rag lol

Were the problems that plagued EVGA Z77 FTW fixed or do they still need to work on the bios more? Still a problem keeping a stable overclock? plus no offset voltage right?

I don't see a voltage offset on mine so it's constant voltage, but than that it's an awesome board. For the $110 I paid for mine it was great.

Oh yeah I remember reading the remnants of that. Crazy! Wish I'd gotten in on that!

What's going on here? You're adding a tigerdirect item to a microcenter shopping cart? huh?

They've updated the BIOS quite a bit. I heard there is still an issue using real high speed memory, although since I kind of overkilled my graphics with the 2 670s I don't think I need to spend any money to go above 1600Mhz anyway. Would love to hear a reason as to otherwise.
