Default Z77 Motherboards

Help! I can't decide between the ASUS P8Z77-V DELUXE, the MSI Z77A-GD65, the Intel BOXDZ77GA70K, and the GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD5H-WB. I want to do some pretty serious overclocking with the new ivy bridge i7 cpu and I am like linus: THE APPEARANCE DOES MATTER. I am going with a black and blue color scheme.

It's honestly hard to say which one as IB CPU's haven't been released yet. I would wait till after IB is released and more reviews come out.

I find that when overclocking is involved you cannot beat Asus.

A man after my own heart, black and blue baby! Here’s my deluxe board in a 650D with gelid wing 12 fans same as linus uses, after replacing the cables with some dazmode darkside cables think it will look real good. This should be able to give you some ideas.

Yea that looks amazing I am really liking the Asus deluxe but Linus got me worried when in his unboxing he said that it wasn't really meant for serious overclockers. He said that for that he would go with a sabertooth or an rog board. :/

Get the GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD5H-WB. Its as good as ASUS MB and much cheaper.
