Need help choosing a Motherboard
Hey guys thanks for helping, below is my planned build:
Motherboard: Looking for recommendations
Case: Thermaltake Level 10 GT Snow Edition
Processor: Intel Core i7-3930K Sandy Bridge-E
Memory:G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133
SSD: OCZ Agility 3 AGT3-25SAT3-240G * 2 in Raid 0
CPU Cooler: Corsair H100
Graphics: 2*Sli GTX 570 Superclocked
PSU: CORSAIR Professional Series Gold AX1200
+ Storage Drives etc
I'm not buying all of it from newegg since some of their prices are off, the links are for specs etc.
Which motherboard do you guys recommend? Should i change any other parts?

I just picked up the 850W Corsair and it is plenty, the larger 1200 might be a bit of over kill. - Not sure what you are looking at paying for it,
but it may help with the cost of something else. - But a good investment at least.

I picked up the Asrock Z77 a few days ago, Excellent MoBo for the price....

I'm in the same boat as you, OP. I was thinking about going with IB for a new water build, but that doesn't look like it will pan out. The 3930K is looking more attractive every day.
I'm an Asus fan, and I like the features of the RoG boards. I just don't think I can live with a red and black mobo in my blue and black theme. I'm looking at the Sabertooth or the P9X79 Pro. The ASRock X79 Extreme 6 boards look nice though too.
