Re: Need help upgrading cpu and motherboard
Well, in the Z77/prior days you needed a Z series board to overclock a K CPU. Now, you don't.
So really, all you are getting from a Z series board is more stuff. SATA3 ports, USB3 ports, more PCI/PCI-E slots, ect.
That particular ASRock board has 2 USB3 ports, a USB3 header for case USB3 ports, and 4 SATA3 slots. The only thing I could see needing *possibly* is 2 extra RAM slots from a higher up model. This particular B85 board has a PCI-E 1x slot in the right place for a wifi card so really, it's up to you whether you want to spend the extra money or not.
