I have a Z77 GiggleByte not Z87 but with proper BIOS screen shots I can grasp onto it with you..
Let me know, I'm probably more anxious then you are..
After deciding on water I was scrutinizing my board choice. This is another thing you could be of great help with. I chose that board for a few reasons:
1. You speak highly of gigabyte and your word holds heavy weight with me
2. It fit my price range
3. Curiousity. I had ASUS and would like to try a different company.
4. It was rated pretty well
I want something quality that isn't overkill that will work well with that cooler and most important be easy on a noobish person like me. Oh and it not being DOA in the box....but that is on the egg....but obv something that I can expect to be quality. I doubt I will ever SLI 780's but I don't want some junk board either...def something midrange in the 175-250 price range. Other than the extra ports and peripheral slots what separates those very expensive boards like the sniper apart from the mid range ones? I mean "military spec" and all that stuff is just advertising...hard to read through the fog.
