Recommend a 1155 motherboard
Been a while since I've followed the latest motherboard revisions... specially with the Z68s and all that. I figure you guys would be more up-to date with this stuff. This is what I would be doing with it.
- No SLI/Crossfire
- I will be overlocking
- SATA III
Been thinking in pairing it with a 2500k and about 8GB or G.SKILL memory. Any suggestions?
check the special on the ud4 from giga?
Don't even get me started on Gigabyte..
NCIX.com - Buy MSI P67A-GD65 (B3) P67 ATX LGA1155 DDR3 2PCI-E16 3PCI-E 2PCI SLI CrossFireX SATA3 USB3 Motherboard - MSI/MicroStar - P67A-GD65 (B3) - in Canada
These are great boards.
2nd rec for Z68 UD4. Cant beat that price
The special ended on the Gigabyte boards yesterday I think...
Main differences on P67 vs Z68?
The main advantages of Z68 over P67 are HD caching and igpu. Basically you buy a small SSD and use it as cache for your system. Saves $$ bc you can have SSD speeds with just a small SSD and you still get the space with your other drives. Other than that you have Virtu which can save a little power by using the boards igpu when idle.
I would probably go with P8Z68-V Pro or Z68XP-UD4 if you want a good Z68 board in the $190-200 range.
How good would that be when already have an SSD?
Still, the price for that UD4 was amazing. Any way they could honor that? PMing Linus?
if you already have one dont bother..unless its a small one and youve run out of space :)
yes..it was. probably not.
If your SSD is 60GB or smaller then it is worth it to get Z68 and set up SSD caching. If you have a large SSD I wouldnt worry too much about Z68, P67 would be fine as well.
Alrighty sounds good..
Out of these selections.
- MSI P67CS-C43
- ASUS P8P67
- MSI P67A
- Gigabyte GA-P67A-D3
What do u think would be the best choice?
