Lga115 still around ?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hey I figured here would be a good place to ask

I bought a 3770k CPU and asus p8z77-m about a year ago I don't feel it's worth upgrading from my current CPU at this stage but my motherboard is holding me back

Just wondering if anywhere still stocks a quality overvlock friendly motherboard at all?

As my current asus board seems to really not like overclocking at all

Or I'm a dumbass one of the 2

Also note I'm planning on upgrading my graphics card in the not too distant future and would like to try a pair of gtx 760's seeming I'm on a bit of a budget

And NO I am not even going to bother with radeon's at all every one iv had in the past has been good for a few months and then died

This is the best budget board for Z77 1155 Socket (Ivy Bridge 3770K compatible chipset)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157293

It will also support dual cards if you go that way in the future.

Extreme4 never was and still is not the best budget choice.

Few good Z77 boards are left in the market atm, but P8Z77-V is one of the best board for money.

This.

The Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H or D3H were the best budget choices but they are difficult to find nowadays. If you can find one then great but otherwise try and grab an Asus P8Z77-V or P8Z77-V Pro.

MSI's z77a-gd55 and higher can also fill the gap if you can find one.

If definatly prefer a Msi board if I can get ahold of one

And every single one I had years back used to cook the last one I had I can even remember what the model was now it went well for a little while

Iv definatly had better experiences with nvidia cards

GA-Z77X-UD3H still lives, can't find the D3H anywhere though.

Considering how the Asrock Z77 Extreme4 is the best selling Intel motherboard EVER over at Newegg, having almost 2x as many customer reviews as the next contender, and it scores 4+ out of 5 on over 1000+ reviews.... I think it's a good bet he'll be happy with it.
But to be completely honest, you'd be better off either waiting till next month (May) since Intel is releasing a refresh of their Haswell line of chips (at least 4 new processors) and a new Z97 chip-set to go with it. There have been BIG advances in both Z87 and the upcoming Z97 chip-sets because many features (USB3, SATA6, etc) are now located on the CPU die itself and not "onboard" (located on the motherboard) which greatly enhances system BUS performance. Combined with many additional PCI-Express 3.0 16x lanes that don't drop to 2.0 speeds if you add a second card as well as faster memory speeds.

Due to my Corsair H80i's pump crapping out of me, I recently had to upgrade my older i7-860 and was on a very tight budget and ended up spending $289 + tax @ MicroCenter and drove home with a brand new Intel Haswell i5-4670 which I'm running @ 4.2ghz on a new Asrock Z87 Extreme4, and have been super happy. In fact, I need to go down to MicroCenter with my receipt and have them give me $20 back since they recently dropped the price of the motherboard. So I actually ended up paying $269 for the CPU and Mobo. Not too shabby.

That's a good board too. But I wouldn't spend so much money on a board for a chip that's almost 3 generations old. The Asrock is cheaper, better audio, faster memory, and it looks better IMO.

I've been a die-hard Asus owner since 2000 when I bought an Asus K7V "slot-A" motherboard, and have owned probably 15 Asus boards since and been happy with them all. It took a lot for me to buy an Asrock, and would have returned this thing immediately if I wasn't completely happy. Well... it's been in my PC for two weeks now. Great board.

It's not almost 3 generations old, but 2 when Broadwell gets released. And Broadwell was delayed until the end of the year. There is just going to be Haswell refresh with Z97 release.

I don't know where you've read that USB/SATA and so on moved to CPU die because they're still controlled by motherboard's PCH.

Haswell doesn't have big advantages over Ivy Bridge to even bother.

Oh and good sales don't represent a good product. Lots of people get deceived very easily.
