I have an i5 750. I stupidly bought a Gigabyte H55-USB3. It works fine, but it's lacking a lot of the features I'd like (actual RAID, SLI/Xfire, etc)

Now I'm considering selling it and getting a board that actually has some of the features I'm looking for:

1. 7+ SATA II connections
2. USB 3.0 (if possible, I already have an ext. HDD)
3. RAID 0/1/5 or 10 or something for more drives
4. Supports RAM @ 1600 Mhz
5. SLI capable (Xfire too, if possible)
6. Overclocks well and no quality control issues (of course)

After looking at all the frequently recommended boards (Asus P7P55, GA P55USB3, etc), I can't seem to find one that satisfies these requirements and still gets good reviews in terms of overclocking and quality control.

Any of you motherboard masters out there have a great 1156 board to recommend?

I like my P55-GD80.

I think it does all of those things

That board looks nice, but:

1. No RAID support shown on Newegg's specs
2. No USB 3.0

@socrates:

P7P55D-E Pro looks perfect. Now I just actually have to suck it up and swap boards.

Thanks!


It does support raid

PCIe USB3.0 add-in cards are cheap:

Do you honestly use USB3?

OR!!! you could get the p55-GD85 which is pretty much a GD80 with USB3 and SATA3.
