Any particular reason you went with an locked processor but a board designed for overclocking?
Was going to say the same thing.
Z77 boards can do more than just overclock the "K" SKU's. Maybe he got a wicked deal on the 3570.
I was wondering that. Hence why I asked. It is challenging sometimes to gauge what a builder is thinking.
Even more so when there is no description.
Some odd choices here, a description would maybe explain some of it. More pics too!
$1100 and only a 760?
i would make a desc and add some more pics before it gets downvoted
Haha, I chose that mobo and cpu because I'm a new builder and don't know how to pick parts... :-(
Then ask around for help? There's a subforum specifically for opinions on parts lists.
Research research research. Please do not be afraid to ask other for help. That's what I did and I would say it worked out fairly well for me
