Help me pick a motherboard

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I built my second computer, only to have problems with the motherboard. I'm returning the motherboard now, but need a replacement. What would be the best one for this build? I already have all these parts:

-AMD A10-5800K APU 3.8Ghz Processor
-Kingston HyperX Genesis 4 GB Kit (2x2 GB Modules) 1866MHz DDR3 PC3-15000 240-Pin Non-ECC CL9 1.65V DIMM XMP Desktop Memory .
-Samsung 840 Series 2.5 inch 120GB SATA III internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-7TD120BW Samsung 840 Series 2.5 inch 120GB SATA III internal Solid State Drive
-Corsair Builder Series CX 430 Watt ATX/EPS 80 PLUS
-SAPPHIRE AMD Radeon HD 6870 1GB GDDR5

The motherboard I had was this one:

After putting everything together, I had electrical buzzing noises coming from all 3.5 audio ports. Swapping the video card, power supply and connectors didn't change anything so I'm assuming this board sucks, any recommendations? Thanks!

I always choose Asus or Gigabyte for a motherboard and the boards in your price range I think this one would be the best.
