Best mATX SLI Mobo for s1156

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Long story short, i had to give away my EVGA P55 SLI Micro motherboard, and i need a replacement for my Audiophile rig. THing is, i'm not sure what to get for it, as i kinda wanna try other brands, even tough EVGA is good.

Motherboard must be mATX due to case limitations. I don't really care about USB 3.0/SATA III or even the chipset, but it should be SLI-compatible, so that ties me to P55. It also must have one PCI connector for a soundcard, as i've seen some which get rid of it. It must also be good for OCing, maybe to try and get my i3 stable @ 5 GHz (or at least maintain it's 4.6 GHz), and to push an i7 to 4.2 GHz+ later on the road.

I know of the Maximus III Gene, but as i will be replacing the sound card and not using some of the ROG features it loses much of it's edge, so i want other alternatives. The only other i know is the GA-P55M-UD4, not sure how good it is as though. Which good motherboards are out there for this setup?
