Can't figure out which motherboard to buy.. to oc 3930k 4.2ghz or 4.5ghz (ideal)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I was thinking of buying a completely new pc lately

But i can't seem to be able to find the right motherboard for OCing a 3930k with nice temps and being stable with all that bios stuff. (i did some googling earlier but all i got was various praise on different motherboards and nothing really stood out which confused me some say gigabyte x79 bios would do the trick while others would say asus or asrock so i'm lost)

rest of specs i thought of getting
PSU : (recommend me one please)
Case : FT02-B
CPU : 3930k
Motherboard : (help! can't figure it out i prefer to keep it at 300$ instead of 500$..)
CPU Cooler : (recommend me one!)
Ram : 16gb corsair vengeance ram ( the most typical popular ram probably for now) [unless if you guys have a better recommendation over it with the mobo and 3930k combo]
GPU: (i guess I'm waiting for a GTX 770 or 780? hopefully it's out by the end of this month right? unless it's going to be a long wait..)
Hard Drive : (Can you guys recommend me a 120gb SSD aswell?)
Hard Drive : 1Tb hard drive western digital black

Am i missing something out?

Is there anyway to make the air flow even better by replacing the fans? (I hope it's not noisy)
Someone recommended adding 2 big fans or 3 small ones on top but i don't know which ones to go for. (Should i even bother replacing the bottom ones?)

Thanks for reading this far and trying to help me out.

asrock extreme 6, asus rampage 4 gene are both good boards that will get your the OC you want for under 300.
if you can go around 300, the sabertooth is like 320 and its good same with the asus p9x79 pro.

anything specific you can narrow down detail wise?
4.2-4.5 is an OC most boards can get with sandy, so it boils down to features you want.

A P9X79 Pro can be had for around $315 IIRC.

It's a solid board.

Of course, as t00sl0w suggested, the RIV Gene and AR E6 are good choices too.

Also, as far as PSU:

-Seasonic x750
-Corsair AX850
-NZXT Hale 90 v2 850w

all of those would be rock solid choices. The x750 can be had for about $150 on Newegg.

I'm going for air since FT02-B is supposed to be better on air
I don't have a budget problem i just prefer to save money instead of overspending waste on the SSD ironically even though i'm going for lga 2011 instead of value 3570k

I'm thinking of replacing the Intake and exhausts of the FT02 with some fans (like an upgrade to make the air flow even better and less noise) but i don't know which ones to upgrade to. I remember someone mentioning some before for this case but i can't seem to remember which ones are they.
