Hey everybody,

With Haswell on its way next month, I was wondering which motherboard you would choose to use for a socket 1150 build. While I know that all 'launch' boards have not been reviled yet, It would be nice to discuss which mobo you like best (so far) and why you like it.

Ill use a poll to see numerically, but the poll will be by brands and not models since release info is far from complete. This will skew results but its worth a shot.

Ill start: ECS Z87H3-A2X Extreme because I like the design and colour scheme, and seems to contain most features that I would probably use. Also that l33T logo symbol is awesome. I have to say this was an easy choice for me today because Ive been waiting on the ECS Z77H2-A5X to be released, and i still cannot find ONE. Also most of the new models look lame compared to ones in the past.

Regardless..

Somewhat disappointed in Asus' chosen color schemes, especially the mini-ITX board. I'm looking forward to MSI/Gigabyte's selection of mini-ITX/mATX motherboards.

It would be nice if OP puts pictures of all these boards in the start of the thread.

Aesthetically from the pictures I have seen so far I am liking the ASRock extreme 9 the most, and next the orange gigabyte board. THe Z77 msi boards were amazing looking but I don't know what they are thinking with the new Mpower. It's gawd awful ugly.

What does high score mean? New high score is that bad? What's that mean? Did I break it?

Gigabyte Sniper series looks amazing but also Asus have good motherboards. Obviously in color and aesthetic concerns biggrin.gif

Too many choices, GB z87 OC, MSI mpower max/xpower, Asus ROG boards, Asrock OC formula...

Needs a bundle pack with 1 of each!
