1156 Mobo recommendation.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I'm being given a free i5 750 by a friend and wanted a recommendation on a good motherboard. It will pretty much replace the mobo/cpu in my sig rig. I'll also acquire a 5970 at that time. One of my main concerns is the location of the SATA ports; I was given a free 5870 last month but couldn't use it because it would cover 4 of 6 of my SATA2 ports on the mobo (I have 3 SATAii devices in the machine). They are inconveniently placed after the end of the PCIe port on the P5K deluxe.

So let me know what you guys recommend in the way of 1156 socket boards.

Thanks guys!
