    Funny you should say that, i'm using the Cyborg RAT 7 as my mouse with the laptop atm, so will keep using that... And luckily i got my hands on a 90% off razor keyboard a week or so ago :D Which has just been shipped, should be arriving tomorrow :D Got one of the razor black widow ultimate 2013 editions :D

    Not needed, just touching the metal on the computer case will do. :)

    Just a thought, i'm getting a windowed case, don't really want to have a baby blue motherboard, upgrading to the Z77X-d3h, also means i can do Crossfire in future, and its only £30 more. This seems alright?
    Only gripe being the 4 fan header, case is going to have 7 fans total :bang: (although may have solved it, might just get a fan controller for my 3.5" bay?)

    Yeah, seems ok. Went with the Z77X as well myself for that reason. (And some better PWM phasing or whatever)

    I initally wanted to get the UD3H, but since it was a bit pricier and I was kind of on a tight budget, I had to select the Z77X-D3H.

    It's a good board otherwise. We'll have almost identical computers then lol.

    Awesome, means if i have a problem i know who to come to :p
    I initially wanted to go for the Sabertooth, but i couldn't really justify it to myself :D

    :D Yeah, it's a bit pricey (too much tbh). The price in itself isn't justifiable. :D

    Very true, i could compromise, on other things that i wanted, but no need to if the Z77x does everything i need it to, looks good etc. But the Sabertooth does look absolutely outstanding!
    EDIT: Just not £70 more outstanding however :p

    Depends, if i get an extra £100 for my birthday, i might just say 'whatever' and buy it :p I mean sure its a bit over the top, but if it was money i wasn't expecting then i can't miss it :D It would last a while i'm taking it, by the 5 year warranty?

    rofl :D u bad boi

    yeah trust me, it's more or less when you have the item in your hand at last, or installed, you realize how pointless it was to waste money on it while you could've gotten something 2x cheaper that would've done the same job. :D

    I know it's pretty I would've liked to have it in my case too but it's not worth it. :D I share your desire though. :D

    Anyways these Z77X-D3H boards are equally as good (maybe not, but whateverXD).

    Hehe i will see how i'm feeling on the day :p But for now will keep it with the z77x -d3h... just thinking if there's anything else that i could get instead of what i've got.. i think its as good as i can make it for the price, with deals etc its exactly 1100 :D
