Help with choosing a mITX LGA1150 motherboard.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello OCN,

I have recently decided to swap my ATX build into a mini ITX case. I'm now looking at purchasing a mini ITX motherboard. I'd like to go with an ASUS ROG Impact but they seem to be difficult to find at the moment. I've seen a few used ones recenly sold on eBay, but I would prefer to to buy a new one to avoid any issues with a used motherboard. Some of the mini ITX boards I see on Newegg are:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA6ZP3RJ7574&cm_re=gigabyte_mini_itx_motherboard_lga_1150-_-13-128-721-_-Product

Any other recommendations?

No real budget in mind, but I would prefer to keep it under $200. Really want something that's built well. I am not going to be doing any crazy OC'ing; I will probably re-OC my i5 to ~4ghz and keep the voltages as close to stock as possible.

Thanks in advance.

The Asus board is definitely flashy, but from personal experience, Gigabyte has always been the most reliable. Also, If you plan on running mac os for fun or linux, I find Gigabyte to have the highest compatibility rate by far. Can't speak too much on ASRock, but I will say, they seem to have cleaned up their act big time. ASRock's were known as bottom barrel back when I started.
