very unsure on a motherboard - Page 2

post #11 of 32
P8Z77-V will fit 2 GPUs + sound card just fine. It also has "integrated" single band WiFi N.

UP5 comes with WiFi card, so everything will fit, but there'll be no much space for air.

That ASRock has exactly same layout as other boards listed except few PCI-E to PCI swaps here and there.

It's pretty much similar for other boards with similar layout.

Optionally you can get USB WiFi stick, or external DAC that uses either USB or SPDIF.

I wouldn't recommend first, and DACs can get quite pricey.

I really like the look of that UP5, got any personal opinions about it like its reliability? I mean I've heard good things about the P8Z77 so I've kept it in mind.

Also I've had a personal up close look at a GPU with a waterblock attached. Did not realise it was going to be that small as opposed to when it had stock fans attached!

Can't go wrong with Gigabyte Z77 products.

Are you going to be overlclocking your chip, and to what level? I returned my P8Z77-V Pro for a Maximus V Formula, and I would recommend anyone wanting to push their chip overclock to do the same. Basically if you go with an Asus board, go with an ROG product in my opinion.

If you go with Gigabyte, a Z77X-(U)D3H suffices (has a record of 7.032 GHz under LN2). thumb.gif

I hear good things about Gigabyte, but haven't had one. I can only say go with the ROG line if you get one from Asus.

probably going to overclock to no more than 5ghz. not exactly very experienced with it. And I don't want to force anything serious on a brand new set up. also isn't the gene a micro atx?
-sigh- I wish there were more people around my area with custom set ups that I could just look at and see how they've done things. I've been consistently researching parts, prices and reviews for over 2 weeks xD

Sorry to dampen your expectations, but very few people can run an Ivy chip at 5.0 or above at 24/7 stable. Without delidding most are limited to 4.5 or 4.6. If you have a good cooler and a good chip then 4.7 or 4.8 is possible without delidding. The Gene is a smaller board in terms of size but it should have everything you need, I hear good things about it from people if you don’t want to pay a little more for the Formula. As stated, Gigabyte has good boards too, but if you want to max out your overclocking you want to go with a better board from either company if you can afford it.

oh really? why not? meh the build won't be started till the start of 2014 so who knows maybe a new line of processors may come out. but what do I know, I'm still using a 1st gen i7

The new 4th-gen Core architecture i5/i7-4xxx CPUs (i.e. "Haswell") and corresponding Z87 chipset motherboards should be coming out in June, and there are rumors that they'll be more overclocker-friendly. Of course, no one really knows if those rumors are true yet, but if your timeframe is early 2014 it can't hurt to wait and see.
