ASRock Z77 Pro-4 M M-Atx motherboard.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi there, I have just purchased an ASRock Z77 Pro-4 M Matx board, and I have looked around to see a lot of negativity.
Is this a case of only the negative people taking to the airwaves to spread their opinion, or is the board that bad?

I intend to have a 3570, and no overclocking.
I was really looking for a board that:

Supports Ivy Bridge, Supports my 7950 and my Sound card with nothing blocking anything else, has USB 3.0 and Sata 6Gbps.

If I only intend to use it as a stock board, will it perform okay?

It's an awful overclocker, but if you're running at stock speeds it should be fine.

Although if you're not overclocking why not drop to H77?

Or better yet B75, provided that you're not using RAID for your HDDs and only need one SATA-III port for a single SSD... Gigabyte's GA-B75M-D3H would fit the bill.

I considered H77, Z77 and B75.

But the B75 version of the board didn't have the PCI slots I needed (2x PCI x1 and one PCI x16) and there was just £10 difference between the H77 and Z77 boards, figured I'd get more out of a Z77 at resale.
So as I am just staying stock, to keep it cool, it should be good.

Thanks guys! - excited for a big upgrade, I've had the itch for ages!
