So I chose the P8Z77-V LE instead of the P8Z77-V from directcanada.com. Saves about $50 and I don't think it'll affect performance at all. Just one less sata 3 slot and no wifi go and a few other things missing. Does that seem worth it?
I'm also having a hard time deciding between sandy bridge and ivy bridge. I hear that if I only want to overclock a little with ivy bridge the hyper 212 EVO will work fine, but if I want to be able to overclock a descent amount then the Noctua NH-D14 would be the way to go, and if I went with sandy bridge the Hyper 212 EVO would be fine. Can someone tell me if that's right and what would be the better one to go with? Thanks!
