    i would wait for the pro version,if its like the z68 boards the v model wont let you set (minus) -cpu voltage offset which might come in handy on ib chips in reducing cpu voltage as they dont use much power,the pro version lets you set -cpu voltage offset,there might be other differences too but thats one major difference that i know of

    I ordered a ASUS P8Z77-V PRO now, a store was selling it at 16% off, i was afraid they would sell it out so i was fast to order one ;)

    But i still have not managed to sell my existing PC.

    I have put it on a ebay like website for 750$ during 2 weeks but only 1 guy called and offered to trade for a laptop and there was over 300 views on my ad.

    What do you think i can get for this:

    FRACTAL DESIGN DEFINE R2 Black
    Corsair CMPSU-850HX 850W
    GA-EX58-UD5 S1366 X58 ATX
    Intel Core i7 930 D0 2.8ghz
    Gigabyte Geforce GTX 470 OC 1280MB GDDR5, (630Mhz), 2xDVI, mini HDMI, HDTV, with Cuda
    X25-M SATA II SSD 80GB (2 of them)
    Noctua NH-D14 - CPU cooler
    DVD RECORDER 22X +R/+RW - R/-RW SATA BLACK
    OCZ DDR3 PC3-12800 PLATINUM LOW-VOLTAGE TRIPLE CHANNEL *EOL- 6 GB ( 3 x 2 GB )
    SCYTHE 5,25"" Fan Control SCYTHE Kaze (KM02-BK)

    Built April 2010.

    I remember when i used to buy PC's for 700-800$ and i always managed o sell them for 300-400$

    I guess the problem is that many people is moving to laptops, tablets etc.. and they use consoles to play games.

    If i don't manage to sell it for a reasonable price then i will maybe keep it or give it away to a cousin.

    i dont know with swedish prices,if you cant sell it maybe better to split it and sell the components seperately? you might have better luck that way,think of a price you would like in your head for the complete pc and break it down for each part and advertise each part so that you claw back all or as much as youd wanted if it were a complete pc

    I ordered everything on Sunday. I also bought ASUS Z77 V-Pro at 16% off.

    Complete list:

    Fractal Design Define R3 USB 3.0, Black
    Corsair HX 650W 80+ Bronze Modular
    ASUS Z77 V-Pro
    Intel Core i7 3770K 3,5Ghz
    Antec KÜHLER H2O 920
    Corsair 16GB (4x4096MB) CL9 1600Mhz VENGEANCE LP Black
    SSD 120GB Intel 330 Reseller 2.5
    DVD±RW Samsung 22X DL Black OEM

    I did not get a GPU because i will wait for a cheaper kepler to be released and use Intel HD 4000 meanwhile.

    Thanks for the feedback! Everything should arrive tomorrow so i will start building then ;)

    Everything finished.

    Here are the pics: Ivy Bridge PC - Imgur

    Have 2 issues so far.

    • The radiator pump on the Antec 920 is a bit loud..
    • I connect a External HDD to the USB port on my Dell U3011 Monitor but it does not show up in Windows although it does get power. Worked fine on my old PC.


    I changed ram to 1600 but i did not change any voltages, just the frequency.

    I turned off BIOS emulation so it runs in UEFI mode only. It boots fast and is good. I installed AI Suite II and checked idle temps, they seem ok. Haven't checked at load yet. Tried to play League of Legends with Intel HD 4000. Could get 60-70 FPS at 2560x1600 @ Medium. Will try CSS tomorrow.

    Edit: Fixed the pump, i had the radiator upside down cuz i thought it is better if the water cables is at top but now when they are at bottom its is not so loud. According to some comment on youtube it is not getting water when upside down so it blows air, something like that.

    I have not put the cables nicely on the back, it looks a bit messy so i will maybe try to do it better one day. Right now i am too tired.

    Yes i plugged it in to the front USB 3 port and it worked. Odd issue.

    Also the antec installation instructions for the 920 is so funny. As number 1 they wrote to install the windows software then proceed to install the fan onto motherboard. Lol.. i dont think i would want to run my pc without a CPU cooler while installing windows and then installing their software.
