Motherboard recommendations i5 7600k
Hi. I've been having issues recently with a build I did a couple years back for my brother. It's a Gigabyte G1 Gaming 7 1151 motherboard, it's just going on 3 years old and just started acting up. First I thought it was RAM as it was only recognizing one stick. I tried new RAM but I'm still having issues. I was never able to overclock his i5 7600K Kaby Lake, just assumed it was luck of the draw with the CPU but gave up on that.
I have a previous version of the board myself, with a Skylake 6700k 1150 socket and I had really good luck with my overclock and it's still ticking more than 5 years later. It does occasional hang on boot but no big deal.
I'd like to figure out what my best option would be in the under $300 range (prefer closer to $200) for a new motherboard. I'd like to get a little overclock out of it. System is used for gaming, web design, office stuff, we surfing, etc. Otherwise the PC is pretty solid. Thanks in advance! I've previously built with Asus, MSI, Intel and Gigabyte boards... I'd be open to other brands though too.
