Which Z77 motherboard for a Intel Core i5 3570k? - Page 3

With current prices in place in the USA, getting Extreme4 makes sense only if you can get it under $100. Otherwise, you're lying yourself if you think you got a deal.

But at the same time I know prices differ in Australia, so situation may differ for OP.

And MSI are known to have their own quirks and bugs too, the bottom line is that you can put down Asrock but they've been making good products for the last few years now, regardless of how you feel about their VRM's or anything else they use to build their boards. I would love to agree with you but I've used and built too many PC's in the last 3 years using Asrock boards to know that they simply perform very well. There are lots of good choices today, in all prices ranges but you consistently put down Asrock as if you have some personal vendetta against them.

Nope. I only put down Z77 Extreme4 and down. The rest are pretty good if you disregard voltage bug issue. However, I also don't like their false marketing though. The fact they lie about using digital PWMs for one.

Suprised no one has said but I would go for a GA-Z77X UD3H board, I've got it and it is by far the best thing i've ever encountered. I'll admit I haven't got to touch any others but damn, this thing sure has suprised me, the onboard sound is crystal clear!

I ended up getting a P8Z77-V LX, even this board can overclock to 4.5 ghz with rock solid result easily for cpus, after checking reviews.

The motherboard ended up only costing 100$ for me. The ASROCK Z77 Extreme4 has a thin PCB(if not, all the asrock boards). I really don't like using thin PCB boards like that one.

I'll tell you whats ironic. I was using a P8Z68-V LX before. Now i'm using a P8Z77-V LX. Both of these motherboards look so similar, seriously ASUS I would pay more money just for those heatsinks on the VRMs... lol.

That's not an upgrade at all. It doesn't even support SLI neither have better VRM. You could get basically the same board by spending $10 on installing heatsinks to your older board.

Good point. I forgot to tell you that, the previous board (The P8Z68V-LX) was faulty, thats why I bought this board (The P8Z77V-LX), to replace the faulty one.
