Setup help needed Maximus VI Extreme

Level 7
Hey all! So I upgraded from the Z77 to Z87 board and upgraded my everything with it so I am wondering... I am running 2 GTX 770 superclocked cards.. should I use the EZ Plug? Also, using the i7 4770k should I use the 24, 8 and 4 pin connectors since I have them? It can't hurt can it? 😛

In another subject... AI Suite 3.. yea or nay? It looks so awesome and a lot of the top people seem to be using it but a lot of people are denouncing it too.. Are these just haters from the previous generations of the software or does it actually suck still? Thanks and cheers! 🙂

1.) EZ Plug is really only needed if running more than two GPU's.
2.) The 24-pin motherboard and 8-pin CPU are required, the extra 4-pin CPU is only for extreme oc'ing.
3.) Al Suite is personal preference, I recommend not using it for oc'ing, do that through the bios only.
