Hi, so I'm kinda lost when it comes to motherboards and which ones have features I really need and which ones are just flair. I'm hoping someone can help me.
These are the two I'm currently looking at:
Asus Z87-Plus - http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Z87PLUS/
Asus Z87-Pro - http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Z87PRO/
The system I'm building will be:
- MSI HD 7950 Twin Frozr III Boost Edition
- Corsair Carbide 540
- XFX Pro Series 650W XXX Edition Modular '80 Plus Bronze' Power Supply
- TeamGroup Vulcan GOLD 8GB PC3-17100C11 2133MHz
- Corsair H100
I'm hoping 4-way optimization will get me to 4.8ish. Is the Pro necesary for that kind of overclock or is the Plus fine for that? I'm not sure of the necessity of the extra heatsinks and stuff on the Pro so any insight would be great.
If neither of these are good for my requirements please do let me know, as the motherboard is essentially the only thing I don't do much research on and really have no clue at all.
