Best 1155 mini-itx board up to $120.00?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Seeing as how the Asrock board I wanted sold out in both the New, Refurbished AND Open Box forms last night I'm at a crossroads as to what to buy.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157268&Tpk=ASRock%20Z68M-ITX%2fHT
^^^^
Originally what I wanted here. Any good replacements around this price feature wise? The thing I loved about this board is that in the future if I wanted too it's capable of overclocking and my sig ram would have been able to run at the full 1600mhz clock speed. I'm also willing to stretch my budget another 25 for it.

lol wut?

Well the best micro atx board is the Gene z but since you are looking for a mini itx... i guess it would have to be one of these but the one in your price range is OOS

H67 and Z68* ITX boards are mediocre. If you want to overclock you have 4 choices, 2 gigabyte and 2 zotac, none of which perform well enough to consider. The zotac is quite nice, but its 50/50 if you get one that even works.

MATX is irrelevant.

The Z77 lineup for ITX is 10x better. The ASUS itx board has 10 phase VRM, so you can actually OC. As far as I know most companies are releasing Z77 itx boards that all look 20 times better than 67/68 boards. Featurewise and cosmetic wise.

And with NDA lift on 28APR the mobos should be out in a week or two.

Thanks for that. I guess I'm going to just use this board as a temporary solution in the meantime.

pick up a Foxconn H61 ITX while you're waiting.

I like my foxconn h67s with my i3 2100. Of course if you are going quad core and ocing this board isn't meant for cpus only up to a 65 watt tdp.
