New ITX Build - Need some suggestions

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So, a pretty straight forward couple questions for anyone that would like to throw out some suggestions/ideas:

What ITX motherboards do you guys recommend for serious overclocking, and more specifically, just the processor and the gpu? And when I mean serious, I mean as serious as you can get with regards to the ITX form factor. The processor and gpu will be liquid cooled as well.

Right now I'm looking at a couple different boards:

The GIGABYTE GA-B75N, ASRock B75M-ITX, but most likely the board I will wind up going with is this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130673 . Mostly because that's pretty much the limitation of my motherboard budget, but also because it looks like a killer mITX board.

Also, this build will most likely contain a 3570k and a gtx770. Both liquid cooled, like mentioned above.

Thoughts/concerns?

Asus P8Z77-I DELUXE would be the most serious ITX overclocking board out there currently - both the GIGABYTE GA-B75N and ASRock B75M-ITX do not overclock (they are B75 boards)

Thanks for the reply. I never realized that B75 boards couldn't overclock. I thought only the H models could not overclock.

And yes, I have already considered the Asus, but it's just too much money for me to spend on a motherboard.

For $109 after MIR, you get a MSI Z77 LGA 1155 mITX motherboard + Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Profile RAM.

Sell the RAM if you don't need it, and you have a pretty good motherboard for cheap!

He already posted the MSI, and yes he should go for it.

I just wasn't sure if that free RAM deal was active 20 hours ago from when he posted thumb.gif

Yeah I already bought it. I'm pretty sure that aside from the Asus, it's the best mITX board out there with OC capabilities, for 1155.


Anyways, I need some liquid cooling help as well; If I plan on liquid cooling my processor and my gpu, I need a dual outlet pump/reservoir right? Something like this would allow me to do what I am thinking of? http://www.frozencpu.com/products/10387/ex-pmp-98/EK_525_Mountable_D5_Dual_Loop_Top_-_White_Acetal_-_Laing_D5_Swiftech_MCP650655_EK-D5_Dual_TOP_2-Loop_G14_-_White_Acetal.html?tl=g57c595s1935#blank - I don't have any real plans to buy from FrozenCPU, I am just using their page as a reference point.

Is it possible to cool both the gpu and cpu with just a single loop top? That would also depend on the size and output of the radiator right?


Any help/insight/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
