Which 1155 socket Mobo for stability and quality.

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

This will be my first hi-performance PC. And i have never been into overclocking. Infact i might or might not over clock, and even if i over clock it will be not very high. I have already brought all the components for the PC except the mobo. This will be a Sandy Bridge i7 2600K built.

I keep my system running 24/7, downloading stuff off the internet, or sometimes keep it running just like that in idle mode.
Hence i am looking for a motherboard that is ideal for this environment.
I want a mobo that does not get fried up cos of its round the clock uptime.

I have been looking into three mobo's,
1. Sabertooth.
2. Asus WS Revolution
3. Asus Maximus IV ROG (i know this is out of stock, but if it is worth i can wait)

Kindly guide on what is the right mobo for me.

Also i plan to add a HDD Rack to the setup for backup and media storage.

Since you won't be using up much CPU power from downloading and browsing the web, I would say go for the Gigabyte P67A UD3R. The motherboards you have listed are suitable for gaming, folding, and rendering systems but would be overkill for your usage imo.

Why not just go with an ASUS P8P67 or P8P67 Pro? Both are fine boards and will save you money. Since you're running 24/7 just make sure you have good airflow in your case.

The Asus WS is a great board, but if you are not using multi GPU's its not worth it. Review here

Edit: The Gigabyte P67 UD5 is a great alternative to the WS. It doesn't have the NF200 chip which would decrease power consumption, and the cooling is just as good.
