Logically the answer is no. The guy is no fool and knows about performance tweaks.He has already asked about a 400 meg (15%) o/c using the same cpu in a higher tier board and would it be worth it for gaming?
Then is it worth to buy a Z77 mobo just for that (15%) ?
Its like getting a Ferrari in my country (CUBA) and you will be always stoped (limited to 100km/h)because of holes all over the way, so you can not fully enjoy what you get for your money.
So, in my personal opinion(and forgive my broken english, as its not my native language) if I buy a Z77 mobo, then I buy the K processor too, in order to use the full OC potential of the mobo. uff more than 9 min to finish.
