i posted wrong information.i was seeing the other`s thread title which said upgrading sb-e


Well look for a used an i7 4820k and a x79 mobo or a z87 with i7 4770k

the gigabyte / 4670k suggestions are great, the 4670K is plenty for gaming, in fact I have realised there is no point me upgrading to a 4770k apart from upgrade-play-time.

It sounds like your motherboard has been on it's way out from day one, I would actually contact gigabyte and enquire, detail all the problems you have had and all the components you have swapped out to try and get it working, (could even link them to this thread), you never know they might still replace it as its only 2 years old.

I have a 2500k running a Z77 gigabyte ud3h board with no issues at all, for over a 2 year old cpu the 2500 still kicks. cheapest and most time efficient option i would do is go for a z77 board and use the rest of the hardware you currently have. Unless you really want a better cpu in that case you will probably be better off finding a buyer for the 2500k while you get the new components.

Yeah i'd probably just recommend getting a Z77 board and just popping your 2500k in it. The performance difference wouldn't warrant replacing the motherboard and cpu.

But shouldn't that board still be under warranty? according to the newegg listing from it it is i its 2 years old.

Never hurts to do a warranty check, had a 2Tb green drive go bad a couple weeks ago and the warranty had 3 months left.

I have contacted Gigabyte about the issues already. They are the ones that suggested the Marvell controller died. They also said that a bad sata controller could cause some of the issues i am having. I can send it in, but god only knows how long it would take to get back. They said it will be 5 days not including shipping. So if that is correct, it will take 11-15 days if not longer. I would rather just buy something new and have something more stable now. If i get a new cpu and motherboard i can send in the z68 board and when i get it back i can use it elsewhere or sell it . That might seem stupid, but that's why i made this thread.

That is exactly what i would do. buy a better Z77 board with the features you want, install the 2500k in it, use the Z77 board from her eon out and then when the replacement z68 board arrives, throw it up for sale or keep it as a spare in case the z77 board does goofy stuff.

What z77 board would you suggest? Micro Center doesn't have many z77 boards. I can also buy from amazon. If i am not buying a cpu my budget is a lot lower, $150usd. Also, is it safe to buy refurbished motherboards? I googled this a few weeks ago, and didn't find a definite answer. some people were saying its ok as long as its from a reputable place, and others said don't do it.

I have been looking at these motherboards.
