    Your still going to get a good 2 years with the Z68 and 2700K, by then you would have saved enough money to upgrade to the latest platform. As far as Memory, talk to Jim, I have sent him at least 10 kits to review in the last couple of months with two more going out tomorrow or Weds. I know you live overseas, but I have shipped to a lot of forum members that live out of the country, by USPS Global Express.

    Thanks, and yes I too think that a solid 26K and 27K could hold up some time still.

    Only thing I would like to have cleared up is why people think that the Extreme 7 is Asrocks flagship?

    The Asrock Fatal1ty Professional Gen3 beats the Extreme 7 in almost every aspect?

    Fatal1ty: V12 + 6Phases, Quad SLI, 2x PCI 3.0 support, more features etc etc
    Extreme 7 : V8 + 4Phases, Tri SLI, 1x PCI 3.0 support, less overall features .....

    Look here:

    As for mobo I personally don't know what other brand to recommend beside Asus, because I always use them, my favorite. AsRock has come along way and nicely but never own one. And as for overclock capability, the 1155 is all depend on the CPU, if the chip is binned then no matter how expensive the mobo is, it won't help you go any further.

    The golden 2600K is around 54x multi but most of them doable around 50x or 51x but it does need Vcore above 1.50v. Are you ready to run you chip 24/7 at this voltage? This is way out of Intel's specs.

    It's true Z77 is not much different from Z68 Gen3, the different is the Z68 will be replaced by Z77.
    Ivy Bridge technology design is based on Sandy Bridge, so overclocking is not much different or better than SB. However, it requires less voltage and the maximum operation voltage threshold is even lower than SB.

    Anyway, you don't need $300 1155 board, a decent sub $200 board will do the job just fine. I used to have ECS P67H2-A Black Extreme, top of the line from ECS and I can't even increase the bclk more than 1Mhz, and can't even crank the multiplier past 50x, it's not allow. Now I have Asus P8Z68-V Pro, I can't OC the 2600K pass 5.1Ghz.

    Yeah the lower TDP is the only factor that is even worth mentioning.
    But I personally donīt care if the CPU pulls in the 70īs Watt as Ivy is rated instead of 95W the 26K rating, it wonīt make a difference for cooling, and certainly not for the every day gamer or extreme overclocker.
    Actually for Max OC such low TDP rating can actually be disadvanteous, as many experts are predicting.

    Nonetheless, 1155 certainly has a year inīem
    Especially considering the fact that there are more people just not falling for the whole PCI 3.0 and Ivy hype, because it is really just more marketing than actual improvement.

    z77 certainly has improvements, just none that are actually relevant to overclockers and gamers like us.

    In terms of 2600K, here is an OC table showing a lot of overclockers with their settings and batch numbers:
    (Scroll down to 26K, then click spoiler)
    [Sammelthread] Intel LGA1155-Overclocking-Ergebnis-Thread ! KEIN Frage- oder Quatschthread !

    Appearently the +5GHZ clockers all have a L040XX batch number.
    I only shop according to those criteria, and the 26K I preorderd has exactly that batch number, so the chances of it being well binned and me winning the sillicon lottery are very good

    But if possible could somebody please answer to my above mentioned question regarding Extreme 7 vs Fatal1ty?

    None of the new steppings get over 5.1GHz on 2600K's. Very few get 5.1 with most getting 4.8-5GHz.

    It seems like a very nice board, with basically an allround supply of features, or as you mentioned hybrid capabilities
    But it can only run one single slot in PCI 3.0 with Ivy installed, that should have been considered in the reivew.

    Conclusively, I would absolutely choose the Asrock Extreme 7, only problem is that I want to spend all that money on the new board, because I finally wanna be done tingling around what I am gonna do with the residual money.

    I have 350€ mainboard budget and I wanna spend it all.

    Also I might look into some features beyond just plain overclocking.


    Your review opened my X58 influenced eyes, that the motherboard will not have a relevant impact on the CPU OC anymore.
    So in terms of overclocking the Extreme 7 would be plenty, but for the additional money I want some extra features the Extreme 7 does not have.
    The only thing still keeping me onto it are the looks, which are just phenomenal.
    The PCI 3.0 support, isnīt really an arguement though, seeing that it can only support one slot with it.

    The Asrock z68 Fatal1ty Professional Gen3 has for example 12V + 6 Phases, support for 2x PCI 3.0, better SATA Connectors, Quad SLI, etc etc
    It really seems like the Fatal1ty beats the Extreme 7 donīt you think?


    Unfortunately the only other board at the highest z68 end is the Maximus 4 Extreme - Z which does not support Ivy and PCI 3.0

    So whatīs pretty much left in the higher price range, cause I canīt find anything?

    Thinking about it, especially about 28nm price range, I probably even in the future will not buy more than one of those cards lol, so the single PCI 3.0 slot of the Extreme 7 would be plenty.
    Overclocking will be pretty much the same on all of them anyway, and the Tri SLI would also be plenty.


    I will give it another look at the higher price range of z68, and if I donīt find anything I will go for the Extreme 7.
    I also loved the fatal1ty too! I just really like the aestetics of the Extreme 7.

    So can you confirm that the Fatal1ty is technically superior to the Extreme 7 in terms of power delivery due to more amount of phases, GPU support, and overall features?

    In regard to this:
    Fatal1ty: V12 + 6Phases, Quad SLI, 2x PCI 3.0 support, more features etc etc
    Extreme 7 : V8 + 4Phases, Tri SLI, 1x PCI 3.0 support, less overall features .....


    Asrock Extreme 7 z68 Gen3 : Z68 Motherboard Series Manufacturing - ASRock Inc.

    Asrock Fatal1ty z68 Gen3: Z68 Motherboard Series Manufacturing - ASRock Inc.


    Considering this, the Asrock Fatal1ty Professional Gen3 is actually pretty much the best z68 board from a technical point of view in terms of power delivery, PCI 3.0 expansion, Quad SLI support , features, isnīt it?

    Extreme 7 : V8 + 4Phases, Tri SLI, 1x PCI 3.0 support, less overall features .....

    Asrock Fatal1ty z68 Gen3: Z68 Motherboard Series Manufacturing - ASRock Inc.


    Considering this, the Asrock Fatal1ty Professional Gen3 is actually pretty much the best z68 board from a technical point of view in terms of power delivery, PCI 3.0 expansion, Quad SLI support , features, isnīt it?
    No, the power phases is IMO rhetoric. If you understand the way power phase works there is little difference between the 2

    Here you can see the batch number L040XX all overclock to almost 5.4GHZ-5.5GHZ

    Their features are pretty much the same.

    Is the fatal1ty capable of running two cards at 16X Lanes? (Because unlike the Extreme 7 it does not have the NF200 chip).

    The only differences between the two are the phases, Quad SLI, 2x PCI 3.0

    I donīt really care for the phases or the second PCI 3.0.
    If the Fatal1ty is capable of running two cards in 2x 16X Lanes I will take it, if it does not I will take the Extreme 7.

    great...so you know the batch #, it doesn't mean you can get one from your local retailer. It is like shooting crap.

    [QUOTE=Kung Pow;106887]Only thing I would like to have cleared up is why people think that the Extreme 7 is Asrocks flagship?/QUOTE]

    It doesn't matter.

    You should, at this point, choose what YOU THINK is the right board for you, and do it for YOUR own reasons too.
    If a lot of people have a preference, that's all it is.

    The ASRock bran is geared for enthusiasts and has a lot of usable features for the money. That's why I like them.

    Some local/european retailers release batch information to customers, especially regarding 26K.
    Most of them even order specifically with the agenda of aquiring a high amount of a certain batch line.

    If you read above before capitalizing, you would have noticed that this is exactly what I am doing.

    The Fatal1ty and Extreme 7 have the exact same features, only from a technical point of view there are some differences which I mostly donīt care about.

    The deciding factor is going to be if the Fatal1ty is capable of running two cards in SLI with 16x Lanes, despite not having the NF200 chip.
    If it can do that I will choose the Fatal1ty, if it canīt I will go for the Extreme 7.
