Right off the assembly line
Hi Guys,

Can you tell me which motherboard among the below will be the best to pair with i5 2500k??????

Biostar TZ68K+ Motherboard
Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD4-B3
Gigabyte GA-Z68MA-D2H-B3

The Sorcerer

oh wow...Xenforo!!!

Yeah. Z77+ i5 2500k/i7 2600k all the way. Board prices for Z77 are very very sad- for both Asus and Gigabyte, but keeping that aside, Z77 are brilliant when paired with sandybridge. Why no Ivybridge? You'll need to see it when everyone posts reviews. Z77 are very memory efficient chipsets.


Back on TDF :)
Hey man., you should go for Z77., i guess your price point is under 10k., so you may have other options like:

- ASRock Z77 Extreme 4
- MSI Z77A GD55

For Z68., go with d6bmg recommendation if you have lil. up budget or: MSI Z68A GD55 (B3) and Z77 performs better than Z68 and will outperform with IVY bridge CPU's if you plan to upgrade later :)
