Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H or Asus P8-Z77-V Pro

Hi guys!

Can you help me decide between these motherboards?

All the help is much appreciated. Thanks smile.gif

For me it has always been Gigabyte because I like their board lay-out much more than Asus. Also the BIOS has been quite nice for me and they have been delivering stable boards for years.

So I would pick the Gigabyte board thumb.gif

Any ideas about the Sabertooth Z77? Or the other two I mentioned?

Thanks.

Here are my options:

Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H

Asus P8-Z77-V Pro

Asus Sabertooth Z77

The Sabertooth is overpriced. I'd grab the Gigabyte myself, but the -V Pro is also a good board. Is there any reason you need the UD5H instead of the UD3H or the regular -V? There isn't much practical difference between the UD3H and the UD5H.

It is on a discount right now. That's why I included it in the list. Reviews say it's a pretty damn good board but I still can't decide between that and the sabertooth. frown.gif That thing just looks so good lol. It looks like it has better cooling too. Doesn't that mean it has better oc potential?

Thanks for the reply btw smile.gif

Generally speaking, the motherboard has little to do with overclocking potential (except at extremes of very cheap boards, or very hgh end cooling). For normal air or water cooling the chip is going to determine the overclock, not the board. And from everything I've seen, the Sabertooth doesn't have any better cooling than any of theother boards due to the "thermal armor". Buy it for the aesthetics if you want, but I wouldn't buy it for any perceived cooling or overclocking benefit.

Thanks for the reply.

How about the performance and features of the sabertooth. Which one has more features? Thanks again.
