What MoBo's do you recommend for Socket 1155?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Alright.... so a few questions first:

Is SandyBridge a good time to build a new PC or should I wait for IvyBridge?

Secondly, if I want USB 3.0, eSATA, good quality and warranty support, good chip sets, and SATA 6.0 ports, and a MoBo that won't bottleneck my future PC with Intel's latest offering, an SSD for the OS, and DDR3, what should I be looking at?

Thanks in advance.

So far, Sandy Bridge looks very interesting and powerful for the price. In some leaked benchmarks, the i7 2600K beats current i7 models by a fair bit, and even the i5 750 replacement, the i5 2500 can keep up with current model i7's even without Hyperthreading. HT and Turbo Boost have also received an upgrade, and are going to be much better than what we've got now.

We can't really know which boards are good yet, but both Asus' P8P67 series and the Gigabyte P67 UD3 or higher look very promising. And you don't have to worry about SATA 6.0 because all P67 motherboards have 2 ports directly on the chipset now. If you're going to have an intense multi-GPU setup the Gigabyte P67 UD7 or Asus Maximus IV Extreme.

To be honest, all the P67 motherboards look good at this point.

There any P/H67 motherboards out that can be REVIEWED to make a justified decision. Sandy Bridge comes out early next year, so just wait for some testing and reviews.

Are you saying that basically no boards that support 1155 are out yet? If so I guess that would be a reason to wait. If not what principles of the motherboards would change with the new CPU that would change what MoBo to get?

take a look at my review of the P67A-UD7 has everything you need. Even sata6g esata.
