Gathering the components for a new build to replace my Q9300 system.
GPU: GTX 760 Gigabyte windforce (probably add a second one later down the road)
RAM: 8 Gigs of G skill Sniper 2133
PSU: Evga Supernova 650W 80+ Gold
SSD: Corsair Neutron 256GB (maybe Mushkin 480GB)
HDD: Seagate 2TB 7200 Barracuda
Case: Undecided, mid ATX
Any suggestions on a motherboard? Looking to spend about $200 give or take. All the specs are so similar it's hard to differentiate.
Also, I'm debating between the Corsair H80i and Cool Master 212 Evo. I know these are very different price & performance points but here's my debate. The 4770k runs hot, so I lean towards the H80i especially since I am going to utilize that K on the end some. But, most of these don't overclock well, so more than likely I'll be able to push it just fine with the Evo using push/pull and take that $50 and apply it somewhere else.
The 212 EVO will be good. As for sa motherboard, if it fits your budget an ASUS Z87 - Pro is good. I am using air cooling and have my 4770k OC'd to 4.6 Ghz and temps are not a problem and I only have a one fan option on the CPU with the Gelid Tranquillo. I can turn the Heat sink and fan so it will push ot the other way to pull.
