My System Specs

Default ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77 questions

I have two questions on this board.
  1. Can I use a Sandy Bridge 1155 CPU on this board?
  2. Will a Noctua NH-D14 fit on this board?

Thanks in advance!

yes, yes, and yes, you will have no problems with it, just be carefull that you dont buy high profile ram with that cooler (EG. corsair vengeance) or it will foul and you will either need to cut the heatsinks of your ram (they are useless anyway) or buy low profile ram (eg. corsair vengeance low profile).

Also, if your happy with a 2500k, i would go with the gigabyte z68x ud3h b3, i have one and really like it.
The power supple however, i would not recomend, get a better quality 650w PSU because i have the same one and its reallyyyyyy loud, big negative of my system.
