I'm looking at the recommended boards and see they have 6 sata III ports but 4 of those are Marvell ports. For my SSDs I'd only use the intel sata IIIs? I don't know anything about Marvell but am reading mostly terrible reviews on Marvell. When would I even use a Marvell sata III port?

EDIT:

Someone sent me a link to the Gigabyte g.1 sniper m5 and the 4770k. That's beastly! It received overclock3d gold and innovation award. Thing is... and newegg is offering a special price to buy this and the 4770k... is this overkill? I'm not upgrading. This will be my first build. It appears as if this motherboard isn't using Marvell, and I read great things about gigabyte. Suggestions and advice? If it's money well spent that's fine. If it's excessive overspending I'd rather not.

The G1 Sniper M5 is a micro ATX board so you may or have room to add a WiFi card depending on the size of your video card setup. Other than this issue, the board is very nice. You can switch op amps, which basically gives you different audio options. The power phase is not extremely high, but they don't split it like Asrock so you are getting good phased power to the CPU. With either board, you wo t notice a difference because they both have an adequate power phase. The G1 Sniper M5 is a good board. I would probably not hesitate to buy it, but I am not saying to buy it over the Asrock. Both are good baords.

Now for the 4770K vs the 3770K. Obviously, this will determine whether you purchase the G1 Sniper M5 or not. Some of the 4770K CPUs are not overclocking as well as the 3770K CPUs. With this being said, you are getting a 5 to 10 percent performance increase with the 4770K just because Haswell chips are performing a little better than the Ivy Bridge (3770K) chips, clock for clock. You won't have to over clock the 4770K as far as the 3770K in order to achieve the same performance, but we are talking very minimal difference. Do what fits your budget because both are amazing CPUs.

I personally would lean toward the 4770K and the G1 Sniper M5 option because Intel will likely use the LGA 1150 socket in the future and this will provide the option of upgrading the CPU in the future. With that being said, I just purchased an LGA 1155 board, so I don't even take my own advice, haha.

Hey Buster, can we get a list of your complete build concept? It'd be much easier to point you in the right directions with a more comprehensive understanding of what you are trying to make.

Heya -

Sure. I had one build with IB but some people sent me Haswell info, so since this is my first build, please advise.

IB build

Nzxt phantom 820
3770k
Asrock oc formula motherboard
Kraken x60 cooling
Corsair 850w psu
780 gtx
16 g RAM 2133 cas 9

Haswell build

Same as above except

4770k
Gigabyte Sniper g.1 5 z87

I love high settings on games and am very into getting the best graphics/visuals. I work with photoshop and modeling programs hopefully will be making machinima.

I myself feel like now is the time to grab IB as the Haswell release has caused a minor price drop in IB as of late, one that probably won't last. I would recommend something like this:

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

CPU: Intel Core i7-3770K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor ($319.23 @ Amazon)
Motherboard: ASRock Z77 OC Formula EATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($229.98 @ Amazon)
Memory: Patriot Viper 3 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($89.68 @ NCIX US)
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($67.23 @ Outlet PC)
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 780 3GB Video Card ($659.99 @ Amazon)
Case: NZXT Phantom 820 (Grey) ATX Full Tower Case ($179.99 @ NCIX US)
Power Supply: SeaSonic S12II 620W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($75.98 @ Newegg)
Other: Gigabyte Wifi/BT card ($26.07)
Total: $1648.15
(Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)

Great info! I can get a 600t corsair case. Will the ASRock z77 oc formula fit well? It's listed as an E-ATX.

No. The E-ATX motherboard will need an E-ATX case. The Corsair 600t is listed as an ATX case. It is possible for some ATX cases to accommodate E-ATX boards, but the 600t does not have much room to spare. I will reply to your PM soon. Sorry about the wait. It has been a long day.

Keep in mind though, I'm pretty sure the ASRock z77 OC Formula is not actually a true E-ATX mobo. From what pictures show, its looks to be as big, if not a bit smaller than, a typical standard ATX board

smile.gif Take your time Blyss. I'm asking a ton of questions, so I feel like I'm spamming the OCN community. Hopefully I'll learn fast and can soon return the favor and start giving informed answers XD

Take a look at this mother board.
It's 279.00 at Microcenter.

It's leaps and bounds ahead of the other recommendations.

Comes with a WIFI/BT module

Intel DX79SI
