I have the Corsair H50 so I will be Overclocking but only as far as the H50 can take me. I don't mind spending the extra money on the sabertooth if it is worth it, but there's also no point obviously if i'm not going to use or need the "extra" features it has to OC anyway. The other feature I do want though is 4 x SATA III

thanks for any help

The Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H is the best board for under $200, definitely go with that unless it's missing any features that you need.

Ask yourself a simple question, "How often do you hear/read about Sabertooth issues"?

and Sabertooth VRM (4 phase CHIL8328 PWM doubled to 8) is not even as good as the at least $20-$30 cheaper ASUS P8z77-VPro(6 phase CHIL8328 PWM doubled to 12) or UD5H (6 phase IR3567 PWMdoubled to 12).

If you want 4X SATA III get the V-pro or the UD5H. Although the only reason I can think of needing 4X SATAIII is using 3/4 SSDs, if you don't then 4X SATA III is not really needed.

this is a much better board than the sabertooth and uses some of the best VRM design around which can deliver upto 60A / phase to the CPU thus provides enough power for them high overclocks.

the UD5H is no slough either so if you want to save a few bucks i highly recomend it.

Yea I was hoping someone would magically find me some uber board for $150 i overlooked. So go UD5H or pony up another $70-80 for the UP5TH

if you want to save then i would just get the UD5H or even UD3H. MSI z77 GD65/GD55 is another decent board but you loss offset voltage control.

You can even look at the Gigabyte z77x UP4 which uses the same high quality VRM design as the UP5 except its a true 7 Phase design IIRC.

the Asus Maximus V is on sale for the same price now as the UP5, should I give it any consideration?
