    My MB has just died is it worth buying a new cpu and mb for Z87 or just buy a new board for my old 3970K ?

    Well nothing on z87 outperforms the 3970 so get a new mobo.

    May I ask how did it happen? It just stopped working?

    I also agree that you should get a new mobo, X79 motherboards refresh should be out very soon because of Ivy-e
