    I'm sorry to hear you bought that board... Well.. because you are my buddy, and I don't want you to get ripped off.. I'll give you $93.99... I know you're thinking you don't want me to get ripped off either, but I'm a team player... :p :roll: All jokes aside that is a kickass deal man! I can't wait to see pictures!

    I'd rather just wait till the end of Nov and grab the 3570K and then that way i can just swap mobo/cpu at the same time. The i5 2400/Z68 is going to be handed down to my daughter for her PC which I WAS building until i snagged this deal. Im pretty content on my i5 2400/6870 it is suiting my gaming needs just fine atm.

    Z77FTW is maybe most beautifull board I ever see. Competition is tight. P55 Classified 200, X58 Classified 3way, X79 FTW, Z77 FTW.
    EVGA HW have one characteristic, at first moment sometimes you think nothing special ( I mean on P67/Z68 FTW, X79 FTW, but immediately when competition ASUS ROG, ASRock, MSI, GIGABYTE show their boards or earlier and you compare EVGA get some strange beauty and difference and becomes far best.

    One guy bought two Z77 FTW for 90$ on overclock.net :).
    X79 FTW is about 160-170$ new. Excellent time for Intel SB-E 3930K.

    It's almost 3930k + X79 FTW like before 5 months Z77 FTW and 3770k.
    6 cores.

    Oh shit what a score!
    I have to admit I was a bit skeptical about the sale of this item.

    After using a few nForce 4 boards, the only thing I am concerned about is the fan not outlasting
    the motherboard.

    Will be keeping an eye on this thread to see how the build goes and if you find more bargains which us in the Southern Hemisphere are always left out of.

    That fan is silent on table without all other fans.
    If you have only that fan in case you can't hear them.
    Below fan is NB and PLX chip.
    That hole part remove so easy and if something happen with fan you can send message to technical support they will prorably send you whole heatsink... but that is for my opinion very good quality much better than on previous boards Sabertooth and ASRock boards...

    Real price for this motherboard is 200-220$ because problems,
    with better BIOS this board worth over 300$. 300-320$.
    You buy that for amazing price, and as I sad more people buy for same price.
    I pay 280e for this motherboard. I think now for same price I can buy X79 FTW + 3930k.
    I mean instead of 3770k + Z77 FTW.

    so i think im going 2500K for this board as its about $40 cheaper than a 3570K and can easily hit 4ghz as well. Xmas is more for my kids so i think this is a wise move.
