z77 motherboards ????????? - Page 2

post #11 of 30
I have seen Sin0822 mentioning few times that UP4 has OC functionality limited compared to UD boards and UP5/7. I am not exactly sure what is limited, but UD5H makes more sense in that price range. It offers more and has same 6 phase PWM. Instead of 6 IR3550 mosfets it uses 12 low-RDS, so it's close to UP4 in that aspect.

So unless one needs Thunderbolt, I would suggest UD5H instead.

reath37, I have upgraded from pretty much the same system to my current a year ago smile.gif.

thanks, just looking at bills it all mite or mite not change everything but will be limited
to 700.00 so now im thinking maybe

AMD FX 6 core
GA-990FXA-UD5 it does 3 way nvidia
Kingston HyperX Beast 8 GB Kit (2x4 GB) 2400MHz note this is pure gaming machine not very into video editing and overclocking some yeh but
not 5ghz, so i just want to hit the best sweet spot for my equipment IE.2 or 3 times SLI nvidia 560 ti,

the reasion is i still have things to get at frozen cpu single bay w/pump res, cables, dye, about 5 fitt, pump, its about $300.00
so i have to stay under 400 mobo, cpu, ram:)

cant do that with a INTEL CPU and INTEL BOARDS:)

Just don't buy water cooling kit. Buy it later.

Still, for $400 you can buy GA-Z77X-UD3H + 3570K + 8GB of RAM. Don't go AMD route, you'll regret it later.

thats 437 .38 but i would give up the idea of running three way in the future it only does 2 way

and i need to get rid of my big ugly res and stow that pump away koolance has a sigle bay that fitts
mcp355 pumps so two birds with one stone
,
and would like to move to a 2x140 rad solution
so it fits into the top of my case where it belongs and get my bays back. so 105.00 RES, 65.00 FANS
65.00 RAD, 50.00 CABLE EX, and dye 10.00. so 295.00 bair bones with out fitt, second pump,
thats under 750.00 that will work i think i'll only cool the gpu's and cpu maybe ram

AMD will bottleneck 3-way SLI in long run anyway. For 3-way SLI on LGA1155 you'll need to shell out $250 or more on a motherboard. No point imho.

true true the fact that intel web site says under mem suported 1333/1600 so is it worth buying 2400mhz ram alot of the boards say up to 2800mhz?????

Most Z77 mobos will support at least 2400MHz RAM, many support 2800+MHz. It isn't worth buying 2400MHz RAM though, 1600/1866MHz is good enough.

Not really. Save some money on RAM, and go Intel. You'll get minimal improvements from faster RAM. Unless you bench, do serious rendering and etc. save some money. You can pretty much build 3570K+UD3H+ some 1600 Mhz RAM for $400 if you look for deals. Especially if you have Microcenter nearby.

You can also save money on a board by buying GA-Z77X-D3H or MSI Z77A-GD55 instead.

Get 2 sticks, so you can upgrade later. Certain boards also have some memory performance hit when all 4 DIMMs are used.
