Suggest me a motherboard.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I currently have a Asus z97-p with a i7 4790k and would like to upgrade the motherboard only for now.

I'm using a AIO cooler and have a core p5 chassis so no airflow, thus good passive cooling for chipset etc is important.

I use it mainly for gaming and photoshop/lightroom and have a GTX 1070 SeaHawk.

Your CPU is already 2 generations behind the current one. You might as well sell what you have and adapt the 6th generation of i5 or i7. thumb.gif
