I am currently using a custom water cooling loop I made.

 

Though i'm having a hard time using this current motherboard. I Was willing to buy a maximus but their way too expensive. For now i think i can manage with this board but i need hands on help either through video chat or a guide that actually works.

Yes i did.

 

At the time, of reviewing tutorials and even LTT's version of "Overclocking" wasn't good enough for me. I've also googled my question but nothing was shown off either. So i'm assuming that no one really bothered with that motherboard.

 

Good thing i ordered on eBay a Asus Maximus VII Hero. Since i know that my current Z97-A is actually not working properly anyways. Will be deleting this forum post.

Well regardless of the board the uefi would be the same as most of theirs. But the maximus will be a bit different. End result will be the same. Using the maximus vi extreme and maximus vi formula which will have the same uefi as what your next board will. Not entirely sure what youre after as the ltt video did that same cpu and a maximus board did better than most 4770k's.
