Windows 7: Good Overclocking MB for Intel I7-3770K

I have just been thinking about what I put in post number 25 Solar.

To be honest, what I put was supposed to put you off the Asrock, not make you want to get one.

Did you read what I put in that post lol? It wasn't exactly a glowing review.
It's a cheap board, it works ok, but it feels cheap, well it did to me.

I switched from a Z77 Asrock Extreme 4 to a Z77 Sabertooth. If I had to buy another Z77 board it would not be the Asrock.

I am glad I changed to the Asus Sabertooth, it is much better all round.

There is nothing badly wrong with the Asrock, but as I say, it's a cheap board that does pretty good for the money.

As long as you know my feelings before you buy then that's fine, but it seemed like you didn't after my post number 25 so I figured I would attempt to convey my feelings a little better.

Well I still have a choice to get what is right my dad is on his way here to help me out

So maybe ill go ahead and get a Asus board but no Sabertooth only reason why I would go Asrock at this point is all the other boards don't fit my color scheme and all those other boards are blue and ugly

I see your dilemma, apart from the ROG boards which are too expensive then all the other Asus Z77's are blue.

You have Gigabyte and MSI but I have no experience of them.

You could of course try a higher end Asrock, maybe they are a bit better than the Extreme 4? But again I have no idea and you would need to check some reviews. The Z77 Fatal1ty Professional looks good.

Excuse my French but fk MSI they were one of the worst I came across they were good to a point but not to overclocking friendly

Ok this one looks better and probably has been tuned better then the 4 http://www.microcenter.com/product/4..._-_Refurbished

Fair enough mate, I have no experience of MSI at all.

The basic thing I wanted to get across was that if you were coming from a nice quality Asus board like you have in your current rig then you may have been disappointed with the Extreme 4, the first thing with that board that annoyed me was that it was not a full size ATX, I didn't realize until I have got it and it felt a bit flimsy. Then there was the ram issue and of course it didn't overclock as well as my old Asus P67 Evo, I thought at first maybe I just got a bad chip, but the Sabertooth has proved otherwise.

I have a hard time recommending anything other than Asus. The Sabertooth is spendy, but it IS an extremely high quality board.

It's probably the one Steve sent back, he is always sending boards back, I think the boards just don't like him lol.

Sounds great Solar, awesome price mate.

No love for the asrock.

Hey paul, what were the differences in overclocking ability did you see going from the asrock to asus board?
I've got my 3770k at 4.8ghz now. I can get into windows at 5ghz but crashes within minutes in prime95. Is the sabertooth the answer?
