help finding a 3570k mobo

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
so i recently purchased a asrock z77 extreme 3 motherboard from newegg only to get it and notice a couple pins are bent. instead of trying to fix this myself i have emailed newegg and hopefully i get a refund or at least credit torwards a new motherboard. so what i need help with is finding a new and better motherboard.

hopefully if i get the refund i'l have $120. that was my last budget.. now i can spend more on a motherboard. so my new budget is around $200

im getting a i5-3570k and i plan on overclock to around 4.3ghz with the coolermaster hyper 212 evo i would also like it to be an atx size. i dont like mini's

everything i have so far

i plan on using this computer for pure gaming. and i also plan on overlclocking. i want it to be fast.(if a motherboard can determine the speeds of somethings)

thanks for the help

AsRock is a good budget board brand, I personally have the Extreme 4 and its fantastic, but understandable if you dont want another.

The Gigabyte UD3 is great, pretty much any of the UD series is great from gigabyte.

Just an FYI, you wont get a large overclock out of that 3570k with the coolermaster hyper 212, I do suggest trying to get the Xigamtec Dark Knight http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835233029, and you should be able to get up to 4.5-4.6 GHz with it.

If you havent gotten a graphic card yet, please let us know your price range for that, and we will help you out with that too.

Sabertooth Z77 goes for about $220 to $240. Can't say no to a mobo that has it's own heat dissipating system! smile.gif

And noisy although it's optional. Most modern boards don't get hot; thus, passive.

FYI Newegg usually rejects RMA for bent pins...

I would go with MSI Z77A-GD55 or Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H though. They both will OC fine if you ever decide to, and they are solid boards for the price.

That PSU is most likely terrible, so replace it... or return it if you just bought it.

Sabertooth Z77 will compete with something like UD4H. It's a much more expensive board than anything else listed in this thread, and it's hardly worth its money. It has worse audio codec than D3H lol, and less true phase count.

Extreme6 is a good choice if you get one cheap, but as many other ASRock Z77 board it has voltage reporting issue, so you are better of using multimeter for real voltage value, or add another ~0.05 to 0.08v to what you set in BIOS. UD3H is something else to consider, as well as UP4 and UD5H. MSI Mpower is another nice choice under $200, or Asus P8Z77-V or V-Pro.

also, i dont plan on getting a huge overclock out of it just 4.0-4.3 maybe 4.5 at the most but ill also have around 6 case fans going

For 680's, Gigabyte, Asus, EVGA, and the MSI Lightning. Basically just try to make sure its at least a 2 fan (excluding the EVGA's, they are just great nomatter how many fans)

That overclock should be attainable on the 212

PS: Its called a GIF wink.gif
