1156 mobo/heatsink

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I need suggestions for 1156 mobo and a decent heatsink.

I'm not sure on heatsink price but $150 or so for mobo.

Heatsink does not have to be all out or anything just something simple to replace the stock heatsink.

Which is better?

I'd probably go with the EVGA for a better deal. It is full ATX, and has 3 way expansion slots for future upgrades. As for CPU Cooler, I'd probably get a H50 because its extremely cheap now, only around 60 bucks the last time I checked. Its cooling is superb! Good luck.

I'm a bit partial to the 2'nd board =) Unless you plan on going with 2 gpu's it's kind of pointless really. And for a budg cooler, can't go wrong with the Hyper 212+

Except its a normal p55 board and can NOT do TRI SLI. Those pcie spot are pretty useless. OP, why did you pick boards that are different form factors?

I have the little brother of the EVGA mobo on my sig rig, and it's a very nice motherboard. Overclocks nice, low temps. Plus, the ports won't be obstructed if you want to use addon cards since it's full ATX, while the ROG mobo will, unless you downgrade video options to use single slot cards (like me, but i'm happy with my SLI'd single slot 450's) or just use a single card.

I'd only chose the ROG mobo if you really care about size.

About coolers, i'm also partial to the H50. Nice little cooler, and pretty cheap. The CM 212+ isn't so bad either, and it's pretty cheap.

2x SLI+PhysX/2x CF+PhysX = win. Hell, just add a 3rd card for folding if you don't use PhysX, or use that PCI-e slot for a RAID/NIC/audio card.

Also, the PCI-E x1 location will allow you to add a good audio card without blocking the video cards, even tho the onboard audio is not so bad. And yea, barely anyone uses regular PCI anymore unless you conserve old audio (or like me, for convenience issues), it's not like you'll miss them. And if you do, you can use the one at the very bottom if you don't use the x4 slot.

I have the Maximus III Gene, I can personally it's an amazing mobo. Handles vdroop incredibly well and really easy to overclock on with lots of extra features. Try and look for a second hand 1156 mobo off here on OCN. Buying a brand new one is a waste of money imo as sandy bridge 1155 socket already came out. As for a decent cooler, I would suggest checking out the CM 212+, Corsair H50/60/70, or one of the Antec equivalents.

It handles vdroop ok. But that's a personal performance you can always compensate. My X58A-UD3R and 4 Way Classified had excellent vdroop control. Though for matx this board is pretty good.

heatsink

You could get what I have it's fantastic.



I had a gene for awhile, it's a sweet lil' board. I'd get it over the Evga any day, cause I don't like Evga Motherboards.
